                                                        Birch oil Betula lenta is excellent to help promote hair growth, according to Aromatherapist Susanne Fischer-Rizzi in her book, "Complete Aromatherapy Handbook: Essential Oils for Radiant Health." Some Aromatherapists and herbalists recommend Birch oil as a way of increasing circulation and blood flow to your hair follicles. The increase in blood flow to your scalp may explain its possible effect on hair growth.

Birch oil can be added to a carrier oil such as Almond oil and used in scalp massage to encourage faster hair growth.

Ylang Ylang oil (pronounced ee-lang ee-lang) Cananga odorata oil is used to treat hair loss because of its calming properties. One type of hair loss is caused by stress, telogen effluvium. It causes the hair to go into a resting state and the hair roots fall out, according to Mayo Clinic. Once the stress is reduced or eliminated, the hair grows back.

A 2006 study by the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at Srinakharinwirot University in Thailand noted that Ylang Ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and an increase in skin temperature.

Ylang Ylang is especially good for acne prone skin. According to "Aromatherapy for Vibrant Health and Beauty," Ylang Ylang is versatile enough to be used on ALL skin types, but appears to be especially effective in treating greasy, oily skin. Ylang Ylang reduces oil production and fights bacteria to reduce and prevent the appearance of blemishes and acne. It has an overall smoothing and softening effect on the skin and is also though to be effective in diminishing the signs of aging.

Tea Tree Oil Melaleuca alternifolia is effective in treating acne. In a 2010 issue of "The American Journal of Clinical Dermatology," researchers suggest that Tea Tree Oil is so effective in treating acne that it may become the standard of care for acne treatment. Tea Tree Oil was alos found to reduce Contact Dermatitis by 40 percent in a study published in the July 2010 issue of "Archives of Dermatological Research." Contact Dermatitis is caused by exposure to irritants and allergens and leads to red bumps or a rash. Further studies are needed to determine whether Tea Tree Oil can effectively treat Perioral Dermatitis.

Hammer KA, Carson, CF, Riley (2002) suggests that Tea Tree Oil might be helpful against scabies (skin mites) and some types of skin fungus. Therefore, in many cases Tree Oil has shown to be highly effective in treating severe to minor cases of danruff due to its anti-fungal properties.

A tea tree oil shampoo, or any natural shampoo with 2% tea tree oil (10 drops to an eight- ounce bottle), will help to unblock clogged hair follicles, moisturize the hair and keep the scalp free of bacteria and fungal problems. For oily skin, a gentle tea tree oil moisturizing shampoo will help cleanse the scalp of bacterial and fungal irritations and help to disperse dead skin cells.

Neem oil Azadirachta indica, a natural microbial, might also help combat head lice. A 2006 research study published in Parasitology Research found Neem Seed Extract Shampoo is highly effective against ALL stages of lice. Head researcher Fathy Abdel-Ghaffar of Cairo University in Egypt, tested Neem Oil Shampoo on 60 children between the ages of 4 and 15. The results showed that the shampoo killed most of the head lice within 10 minutes of exposure with no negative side effects such as burning sensations, skin irritations, and red spots on the neck and forehead.

Using a Neem Oil Shampoo not ONLY helps in ridding the scalp of irritable head lice, it keeps your scalp moisterized and encourages hair growth as well.

Lavender oil Lavandula augustifola has been used for centuries to treat hair loss. Stress, certain medicines, environmental factors and the aging process can cause thinning hair. Many people lose their hair due because of a medical condition called Alopecia Areata. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes the body to reject its own hair follicles as foreign objects. Lavender oil has shown positive results for hair growth in a study on Alopecia Areata, hair loss, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. 

Lavender not only treats thinning hair and hair loss, it provides a sense of stress relief as well. "Psychology Today" notes that Lavender can relieve anxiety. The magazine mentions a study done by Charles Sturt University in Australia noting how Lavender alters brainwaves, creating feeling of well-being and stress relief. Soaps made with Lavender essential oil can promote a sense of relaxation and

Rosemary oil Rosmarinus officinalis is used to help stimulate hair growth. It is also invigorating on the scalp. A study by Isabelle C. Hay, MRCP, published in the November 1998 issue of the "Archives of Dermatology," found that Rosemary combined with other essential oils helped re-grow hair.
