Application Suggestions (See Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart.)
Topical: After shampooing the hair, rinse thoroughly and add a few drops to a final rinse (avoid the eyes). Work into the scalp. It can be left in or rinsed out. It can also be used diluted as spot treatment. Dilute with a carrier oil, unscented lotion or unscented cream and apply on area of concern or as desired. Consider using a roll-on applicator for ease of application of prediluted oil.
Inhalation: Diffuse or use a personal Nasal Inhaler
1. Calm Effect used straight or mixed with coconut oil has been great for my husband's dandruff/hair thinning. He initially used it for dandruff, but he found that an added benefit was that it thickened his hair. - Leigh
2. My daughter had some toublesome spots of dander on her scalp. We diluted Calm Effect 3-5% with Jojoba oil and applied on each area. We left it overnight and shampooed the next morning with Dairy Meadow's Shampoo bar soap. We did this twice a week for about a month or so and resolved the dander issue. - Casey
Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat— like the membranes of your eyes and skin. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Applying a carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eyes or skin. Tisserand suggests: "With essential oils, fatty oil has been suggested as an appropriate first aid treatment, though the advantage of saline [eyewash] is that the eyes can be continually flushed, and this is less easy with fatty oil.” We are not aware of a case where essential oil in the eyes caused permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
