Essential Oils, Plant Oils, Animal Oils and Herbal Teas to Apply Topically

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

These are the most commonly mentioned oils for topical applications to stop hair loss and improve hair thickness.. I will write more about each of these. Many of these topicals could: Reduce inflammation, kill bacteria or other scalp parasites, and reduce dandruff.  Naturally, when an oil is applied one must massage it into the scalp, so an oil could simply be a used for the sake of facilitating a scalp/head massage. Also,  some of the topicals are simply carrier oils, that’s not to say that carrier oils by themselves are not beneficial!

Why the ones below?  I have found at least one person saying that at least one of these worked for them. If one person reported a benefit from a topical, that oil gets listed below.

note: Not one oil or one oil combination works for every one it seems, thus you have to experiment with single oils and combination (recipes).

    Researchers have recently discovered a number of exciting phytonutrients with amazing health protecting properties. One phytonutrient derived from broccoli is Sulforaphane. Researchers have determined that broccoli sprouts contain a much greater Sulforaphane potential than broccoli florets. Enjoy these sprouts regularly.

    These seeds are specially selected, tested and stored for high germination sprouting use. For best results, store the seeds in a dry (but not refrigerated) place.
