DIY: Homemade Ginger Oil for Hair and Body

How to make ginger oil for hair and body

Hi everyone.
Hope it is a smiley day for all of you πŸ™‚
Recently I was doing research on home remedies for dandruff and came across the amazing world of ginger oil. High quality pure ginger oil is very expensive since it takes a lot of ginger to get a small quantity of oil. Ginger is a magic herb that is extensively used in Indian cooking and also extremely useful in daily life for colds, flu, cough, nausea, morning sickness, motion sickness, digestion issues, muscle pains, joint pains etc. It is basically warming and energizing in nature and helps to fight depression and loneliness. πŸ™‚

Ginger is very effective against hair fall, dandruff, for rejuvenating damaged follicles due to chemical treatments like coloring and rebonding. It is not much used in hair care products, maybe because not everybody can tolerate it. When using ginger essential oil or ginger-infused oil, try it out on a small area to test for tolerance and allergy response and then use on scalp and skin.

If you have essential oil of ginger mix one-two drops of it with few tablespoons of sesame oil or olive oil and apply on scalp. Wait only 5 to ten minutes (it is quite strong) and wash off with shampoo.

How to make ginger-infused oil at home:

Wash and peel a piece of ginger. Dry on cloth or paper towel completely. Make about one full tablespoon of grated ginger. Heat one small teacup sesame oil or olive oil in low heat. Add grated ginger to it. Fry till all the water is evaporated and ginger is crispy and dark brown. Do not leave the oil unattended, it may burn. Allow oil to cool off and sieve ginger crumbs.

Usage: It is excellent oil for chronic and stubborn dandruff issues, hair fall due to chemical treatments where follicles have been damaged. Ginger increases circulation to scalp and olive and sesame oil has anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating properties. Before applying on scalp, apply some drops on tiny bit of scalp. If it burns you too much, don’t use it. Apply adequate amount of oil to scalp for 20-30 minutes (not for long) and wash off with shampoo. Do this about twice or thrice a week and see after a month if dandruff disappears. After that do this only twice or thrice a month. Do not make this a daily frequent oil since it has slight bleaching properties.
If you have muscle ache issues, joint pains etc, apply a few drops on affected area. Apply a drop on back of hand and inhale for nausea.
