Hey all…I have been wanting to post about this Do It Yourself Hair Oil
This hair oil not only cools down the scalp & body, but also promotes hair growth.
Virgin Coconut Oil – 100 ml
Almond Oil – 100 ml
Virgin Olive Oil – 100 ml
Fenugreek seeds (Methi) – 2 tbsp.
Dried Country rose petals – 1 cup
Dried Lotus petals – 1 flower
Dried hibiscus petals – 10 (of 2 flowers)
Cinnamon sticks – 3
Vetiver – handful
Pure camphor – 2 pills
- Mix the oils in a large bowl.
- Make sure all the petals being added to the oil have no moisture & completely dry.
- Add all the ingredients listed to the oil mixture.
- Place the bowl under direct sunlight for straight 4-5 hrs.
- Transfer the oil & other contents to an airtight jar or bottle for future use.
This oil holds good for a year.. but of course you will finish it up in months time, in case you are regular with oiling your hair.
There are many contents added in this oil that cool down the scalp & the body alongside promoting hair shine & growth.
Fenugreek seeds – Cools down the scalp, conditions hair, promotes hair growth, controls hairfall.
Rose petals – Mild astringent in nature, tone the scalp, balances the scalp by controlling oil secretion.

Vetiver – Calming & relaxing effects, Aromatherapic in nature, Relieves tension, stress & anger, Conditions & moisturizes hair.
Camphor – Boost hair growth, Relax from tension, Strengthens hair roots, Keeps hair glossy, Fights hair loss.
Now you don’t have to buy some ‘thanda tel’ from the stores, not knowing what goes into it!
Personally the fragrance of Navratna oil brings me headache rather than relieving me of it.
I have almost finished this DIY oil of mine…. all thanks to mom who brought ingredients I needed plus suggested me what & how much to add too! 😀 <3
No better picture than the above one… my oil jar looks so oily & greasy, that no proper picture came of it! 🙁
My experience –
It helped a lot in cooling down my scalp & also helped with hair growth a lot. A lot more other factors were contributing to my hair loss, so I didn’t expect this hair oil to help me cut it down!
Regular usage of this oil has made my hair more manageable without any leave-in conditioner or serum later, making it low maintenance.
