  • Mary July 31, 2013, 5:06 am

    I would use these products to promote scalp health, but I would also add them into the regimen I currently use – sealer, styler, and deep conditioner. I’m not sure if I would use on my skin just yet because I’m still tweaking that regimen. On second thought, perhaps this is EXACTLY what I need.

  • Sharon July 31, 2013, 5:48 am

  • taylorjbeans July 31, 2013, 10:09 am

    Wow this is exciting! I never have a chance to buy essential oils because of my budget…
    I’d definitely use the peppermint and rosemary in my shampoo just for the tingly feeling :D I always save my empty containers so I would loooove to experiment with different shea butter mixes and even mix some oils with my body lotion :)

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  • Breana Higgins July 31, 2013, 10:14 am

  • Pam July 31, 2013, 10:22 am

    If I won these essential oils, I plan on mixing them with olive oil. I use olive oil for my scalp and body after cleansing each morning and evening. Since these oils are pretty “energizing” scents, I would more than likely use them in my morning routine. I’d really like the peppermint oil mixed with olive oil on my scalp for that nice tingly feeling! I hope I win!!! :)

I also love using them when I don’t feel like washing my hair, but feel like I want my hair refreshed… I’ll put on the oil mixture and then wrap my hair in a steamy towel. So fresh and clean…. kinda lol. The steam gets it ready for a fresh twisting! xoxo
