I found a scaly weird little patch of skin on my scalp a couple of months ago -- ick! It was roughly a cirdle and about an inch and a half across. It wasn't itchy, but it was quite irritated and very flaky/scaly.
So I researched oils and natural solutions and tried several. I tried coconut oil alone. I tried different combinations of essential oils, some neat, some diuted, and in different combinations..
I didn't want to share with y'all until I found something that worked ... and I have! Once I started using the recipe below, the scaly area went from a pretty sizable patch to just a little bump after about two weeks. After less than a month, it was completely gone. I also went back to using my doTERRA Salon Essentials Protecting Shampoo and Smoothing Conditioner, exclusively.
As a daily follow-up application, because it is known to be so good for the scalp and to encourage hair growth, I add a drop or two of Rosemary to my conditioner and work it well into my scalp. I let this sit in my hair while finishing my shower, to soak in as long as possible. Every now and then -- maybe once every week or two -- I add a drop of Rosemary to my towel-dried hair.
Scaley Patch Recipe for skin and scalp
I used equal parts of jojoba oil and aloe juice (about 2 tablespoons of each), plus two dropperfuls of doTERRA's Root to Tip Serum as my base. I used a glass dropper bottle (actually a cleaned-out liquid stevia bottle!)
T hen I added:
Shake the bottle well each time you use it!
At first -- for a couple of weeks or so: Drop several drops on the spot at night, massage it in and then wash your hair as usual in the mornings. Add one drop of Rosemary to each application of conditioner and massage your scalp well before rinsing. After towel-drying your hair, apply another drop of either Rosemary or Lavender and massage it well into your scalp.
For skin: Apply as needed. Don't rinse off. This makes a great all-purpose skin and beauty treatment -- very nourishing to your skin! In fact, since I had some left over after my scalp was okay, I've used this as my anti-aging serum. Don't you LOVE that about doTERRA's oils?!?
