Aromatherapy for dandruff can be of great help. This scalp disorder seems to affect nearly everyone at sometime in their lives. It occurs when dead skin cells accumulate on the scalp and fail to shed themselves normally. They build up, and then fall off in large scales.

There are other problems which have similar symptoms to dandruff, such as psoriasis and eczema, so if in any doubt check with your doctor.

Try massaging the following blend into your scalp twice a week before shampooing. Leave on for thirty minutes before washing with a mild shampoo.

Add 6 drops of rosemary oil and 4 drops of cedar wood oil to 4 fl oz (100 ml) of jojoba oil or avocado oil .

Also add one drop of each essential oil to your final rinsing water after shampooing.
