Benefits of Frankincense Oil for Hair

Here are some of the key ways frankincense oil supports hair growth:

Boosts Scalp Circulation

Improved blood flow to the scalp delivers more oxygen and nutrients to follicles.

Has Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Reduces scalp inflammation that can impair follicle function and growth cycles.

Contains Antimicrobial Compounds

Kills fungi, bacteria and microbes clogging follicles and causing dandruff.

Helps Balance Sebum Production

Prevents excess oil buildup on the scalp that can block follicles.

Reduces Stress

Stress is a contributor to hair thinning, which frankincense oil alleviates.

Tips for Using Frankincense Oil on Hair

Follow these tips when using frankincense oil for hair:

Dilute in a Carrier Oil

Don’t apply undiluted oil directly as it can irritate skin.

Do a Patch Test First

Apply a diluted drop to your inner arm to check for possible allergic reaction.

Use 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade

This ensures you get high quality, unadulterated oil.

Don’t Overuse

Only need a few drops per use. Too much could weigh hair down.

Store Properly in a Dark Bottle

Light and heat degrade frankincense oil over time.

Complementary Oils to Use

Boost hair growth by combining frankincense with:

Lavender Oil

Lavender also soothes scalp inflammation.

Peppermint Oil

Peppermint provides a stimulating, tingling sensation.

Rosemary Oil

Another circulatory stimulant that thickens fine hair.

Jojoba Oil

As a light carrier oil that won’t weigh hair down.

How Often to Use Frankincense Oil

Using frankincense oil 2-3 times per week provides good hair growth benefits without overusing.
