Clove and Camphor Oil for Hair {DIY}

Ok, I have to say that I am not liking not spending time on my blog but honestly it is becoming difficult for me to concentrate and I am losing inspiration. I am literally forcing myself everyday to think on what I want to write. I wanted to post today but due to huge workload, I could not do it. Anyways, try and try until you succeed.

Now, lemme come to my hair care routine. Well, as you have noticed, my skin and hair care regimes are all on hold so all those series will start once I really get settled. For now, I have started trying something very interesting. My FIL has a collection of some essential oils like clove and camphor. 

And, the moment I told my mom I am suffering from dandruff, she asked me to use camphor oil. Now, camphor oil should never be used neat on the skin so I diluted it with almond oil. And, then, I saw clove oil over there. And, I had been thinking about clove since days together coz I like the brownish tinge it gives to the hair and it also is a great stimulant for the hair follicles. 

So, I added in a few drops of the clove EO as well in my almond oil and it smells so strongly of cloves now. I have till now used the oil just once or twice but it does really help in reducing the scratchy and itchy scalp. So, try out. 

And, if you do not have clove oil, just pop some cloves in a pan till they smoke and then drop them in your oil. Leave them for a week and then start using the oil thereafter.

Have you tried clove oil for scalp?

  4. Nothing is as relaxing as a head massage! So oils are always welcome! I knew that you could use camphor to combat dandruff, but had no idea about cloves!

    1. hi Taps. so good to see you after so long. hows everything with you? I actually have no idea where it came from. my FIL is also very interested in various kinds of oils and they had like loads of bottles at their house so I helped myself to some of them. all the cloves, camphor and oil of wintergreen came from there :) btw, i think he got them somewhere in ooty. guess they have some local traders over there!!
