Clove and rosemary are two potent herbs that have been used for centuries to support hair health and growth. Combining them in a water infusion allows harnessing their beneficial properties all in one synergistic blend. But how do you properly make clove and rosemary water?

How to Make Clove and Rosemary Water for Hair Growth

Making clove and rosemary hair growth water involves steeping the dried herbs in boiling water for 15-30 minutes. This allows their active compounds like polyphenols, flavonoids and essential oils to fully infuse into the water before straining and using topically on the scalp.


- 2 tablespoons dried rosemary

- 1 tablespoon cloves

- 2 cups water


1. Boil 2 cups of water in a small pot or kettle.

2. Add 2 tablespoons of dried rosemary and 1 tablespoon of cloves to an infusion cup or mason jar.

3. Pour the boiling water over the herbs and let steep 15-30 minutes.

4. Strain the infusion through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth.

5. Allow to cool before using on scalp and hair.


Pour the infusion into a spray bottle and spritz onto scalp and hair after shampooing. Leave on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing out.

Why Use Clove and Rosemary for Hair?

Here's how clove and rosemary support healthy hair growth:

Stimulates Follicles

Their aromatic compounds increase blood circulation to follicles.

Blocks DHT

They inhibit DHT hormone damaging to hair follicles.

Cleanses Scalp

Antimicrobial action cleanses clogged follicles and dandruff.

Prevents Thinning

Rich antioxidant content combats free radicals that can degrade hair.

Tips for Making the Best Infusion

Follow these tips for an optimal clove and rosemary hair growth infusion:

Use Filtered or Distilled Water

Avoid mineral deposits from tap water interfering with infusion.

Dry Herbs Fully

Ensure cloves and rosemary are dried properly or they won't infuse well.

Grind Herbs

Lightly crushing them helps release the essential oils.

Maintain Temperature

Keep water hot but not boiling to prevent evaporation of beneficial compounds.

Steep in Dark Spot

Light degrades herbal properties - steep away from sunlight.

How Often Should You Use It?

Using the clove and rosemary hair infusion 2-3 times per week provides good results. Monitor for skin sensitivity when using long term.

Other Ways to Use It

You can also add a few tablespoons of the infusion to your favorite conditioner, apply as a nourishing scalp mask before showering, or mix it into a coconut oil hair mask.
