My hair is a lot longer and healthier since I introduced this oil into my haircare routine. This oil definitely stimulates hair growth so if you are trying to grow your hair, you should try looking into this essential oil.

My hair can be very itchy sometimes even when it is clean. This oil has gotten rid of the itchy scalp and dandruff, thanks to the antimicrobial properties.

A recent study shows that lavender essential oil could help prevent head lice. The study carried out in 2011 also shows that it may even kill head lice. If you or your little ones are dealing with head lice, lavender essential oil may be all you need to combat them.

How to make hand wash with essential oils

*Affiliate links.

Have you been struggling to buy a hand wash? It looks like they are sold out worldwide now. I can’t seem to find them anywhere! The hand wash being sold online now are going for exorbitant prices. With all the hand washing required now, I can see why many are stocking up and why the shelves are empty. This is why we should consider making our own hand wash with essential oils. I started playing around again with essential oils last month. Essential Oils can be very harmful if you don’t know how to use them. I have blogged before about me thinking essential oils were just regular oils, and how it almost drained me. So I know how strong these oils can be. However, the pros outweigh the cons massively and that’s why I decided to try using them again with caution. If you haven’t used essential oils before, I won’t recommend you try making your hand wash with these oils. It is best to have some experience using essential oils on its own before you start creating products with them.

Homemade products don’t preservatives, which is why you should only make the amount you will need for about 2 weeks or so. You can decide to not include the essential oils if you like or you could use other types. I like the Tea Tree essential oil because it includes antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Lavender Essential Oil smells amazing and it also promotes relaxation.

I will be sharing clips of the hand wash mixture I have made on social media in the few days, so keep your eyes peeled. Thanks for reading and do let me know how your mixture turns out if you try this recipe. Links to all the products mentioned here are below –
