DIY: Homemade Hot Oil Hair Treatment

1 tablespoon olive oil
6 drops Peppermint oil
4 drops Rosemary or Melaleuca (Tea Tree) oils
2 teaspoons jojoba oil
2 tablespoons coconut oil


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1–2 cups of water to a boil. Reduce to low heat and keep water on a simmer.
  2. Place all ingredients, but essential oils in a heat-proof bowl and place in the pot of simmering water. Let the oil heat up and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove oil from heat.
    Note: You want the oil nice and warm, but not boiling hot. Add essential oils.
    Tip: Make sure to cover your shoulders in case of oil staining.
  4. Dip your fingertips into the oil and gently massage the oil from scalp to the ends. When all the oil is used, cover your hair with a shower cap.
  5. Shampoo your hair.
    Tip: You may need to shampoo your hair twice; using a conditioner is optional.

Tip: For best results, add a hot damp towel over the shower cap. Leave it on for 30 minutes.
