Default Growth with peppermint oil

Can anyone attribute growth to peppermint oil? In my quest to perfect that horsetail oil recipe, I added a few drops of peppermint oil and I am sitting here with this lovely tingle on my scalp, and I just hope this is not a superficial thing. It IS really doing SOMETHING right? Does anyone have any peppermint oil stories? Like it regrew your edges or something? Thanks!

It stimulates the scalp to promote hair growth. So does thyme, rosemary,
ylang ylang, lavender, jasmine and cedarwood oils.

Not sure if this is much of a testimony but when I started taking care of my hair around 2/07 I hit the ground running using all kinds of stuff and a mixture of Vitamin E oil, rosemary and peppermind e.o., jojob oil and glycerin was my hair growth mixture. I didn't/ don't track my growth much but folks commented quite a bit at the growth progress and by March of 08 I was at BSL. Now, I wasn't consistent at all and in fact I still have the same first bottles of Glycerin, jojoba oil and essential oils...

I got this recipe from Motowngirl.com...

This makes me want to run to GNC and make my own essential oil blend.

I do a very similiar recipe...I just use castor oil 4oz , peppermint oil, and vitamin E oil..with some coconut oil added also Tea tree oil(kinda went oil crazy)...I think its working i can't wait to take my pics tomorrow to see if theres a difference. I most def. get those creepy tings on my scalp! Hopefully thats a good sign...

I tried coconut oil, jojoba oil, tea tree oil, honey, thyme oil, peppermint oil, rosemary oil, garlic extract oil and EVOO in a mix today! It was AMAZING as a leave in moisturizer in my daughter's 4B natural hair today and helped with the detangling as well...I will try it in my hair as well once I take my pins down...I am hoping it helps with my edges and for thickening my hair

I use peppermint oil, ylang ylang and rosemary oil mixed with jojoba oil to massage my scalp. I think it helped my hair grow the few inches it grew.

Where do you purchase peppermint oil?

I used my old aura rosemary mint conditioner a few weeks ago, and boy was my scalp tingly. It was almost TOO tingly.

I had used that stuff forever before my HHJ, but never had that effect before. I wonder what made the change.

It'd be nice if that tingle stimulated growth.

Default Re: Growth with peppermint oil

when i started my journey i got rosemary oil and eucalyptus oil. i was going to get peppermint too but it wasn't available. i mixed the rosemary and eucalyptus in with basically everything. i particularly used it to massage my scalp for 5 mins every morning and evening (mixed with unrefined coconut oil). When i started, the hair on my crown was thinning badly and my edges were dismal. It's been about a month and my edges have been revived and my crown looks like a wild field right now. I've always had good growth but I believe the daily massages with essential oils greatly assisted this time around. I just got peppermint oil and I'm adding it in from today.

By the way, it isn't the adding of the oils that assists with hair growth. It's massaging your scalp with the oils which stimulates growth.

I like peppermint oil. I buy dr. bronners peppermint soap and trader joes tea tree tingle. The trader joes has tea tree, peppermint and all sorts of goodies in there. It blows your scalp off! I love it.

I originally got my peppermint oil from Sally's. But they also sell it at HEB and Kroger whole foods section and The Whole Foods Store. I believe that the Vitamin Shoppe may sell it as well.
