Castor Oil and Rosemary Oil Recipes for Hair Growth + More

Learn this castor oil and rosemary oil recipes and provide your hair growth, care, and nourishment.

Castor oil is popularly known to promote hair growth, prevent or reduce baldness, and so much more. Used on its own, castor oil is a pretty effective remedy for all the listed above. But, is there another oil, perhaps an essential oil, which can also aid in hair growth, reduce hair thinning, and stimulate blood circulation? Yes! Rosemary oil does all of those things (and more). Discover my guide to castor oil and rosemary oil and get the recipes below!

What Is Rosemary Oil Used for?

Rosemary oil is one of the better known essential oils and for good reason. Its benefits greatly outweigh the small price to pay to keep a bottle handy in your bathroom or kitchen cabinet. While commonly used for its medicinal purposes, rosemary oil is also helpful in preventing hair loss, encouraging hair regrowth, among other benefits.

Rosemary Oil for Health:

  • Soothes headaches
  • Pain & stress relief
  • Treats respiratory infections
  • Improves cognitive abilities
  • Disinfects minor wounds and gum disease
  • and more! [1]

Rosemary Oil for Beauty:

  • Reduces hair thinness
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Eliminates bad breath
  • Soothes skin irritations
  • Cures dandruff

While it is said that rosemary oil can relieve stress, improve cognitive function, disinfect wounds, and more, it’s worth noting that not all claims are backed up with proven research [2].

A 2015 study revealed the effects of rosemary oil vs. minoxidil on hair regrowth in people with DHT-related hair loss after six months. The subjects who received rosemary oil for six months had the most positive result. Not only was the hair growth more significant, less amount of subjects had itchy scalps [3].

The use of rosemary oil on your hair to prevent baldness is not guaranteed, as baldness is the result of many different factors. For another example, rosemary oil can help encourage hair regrowth if the hair thinning was due to a scalp fungus or bacteria. Rosemary oil helps to disinfect and kill off bacteria.

The good news is, rosemary oil does have blood stimulating effects. Like castor oil, rosemary oil helps promote the growth of new hair follicles. Using rosemary oil is another way to boost your hair growth efforts the natural way. Why not try it and see for yourself?

Castor Oil and Rosemary Oil Combined

Castor oil and rosemary oil have both been popular natural remedies for centuries to cure ailments or to enhance beauty.

Like rosemary oil, castor oil is wonderful at stimulating your scalp to promote hair growth. Combining the two oils not only enhances their benefits, but it helps facilitate application too since rosemary oil is best used with a carrier oil (like castor oil).

Not to mention, the aroma of rosemary essential oil makes for an additional pleasant experience.

Recipes: Castor Oil + Rosemary Oil

There are several recipes you can create using both castor oil and rosemary oil. Can’t use castor oil? Then check here to see my list of alternative oils you can use.

Castor Oil and Rosemary Oil Recipe for Hair Growth/Skin Health (Earthy)

  • 1/2 cup organic castor oil
  • 6-8 drops of organic rosemary oil
  • 3-5 drops of organic lavender oil
  • 1 tbsp. organic jojoba or argan oil

Castor Oil and Rosemary Oil Recipe for Hair Growth/Skin Health (Tropical)

Castor Oil and Rosemary Oil Recipe for Hair Growth/Skin Health (Clean)

  • 1/2 cup organic castor oil
  • 6-8 drops organic rosemary oil
  • 1-3 drops peppermint or mint oil
  • 1-3 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 1 tbsp. sweet almond oil

If you need to adjust the castor oil amount to suit your needs, please do so. Have fun with these recipes and I hope you like the three different scents (earthy, tropical, and clean!).

Please use your own judgement when you apply these oils. Don’t use too much, and make sure to dilute the essentials oils with castor oil, coconut oil, or another type of carrier oil before applying to your skin or hair.
