Lovely spring time here in Finland!
Leaves on trees, some flowers are starting to bloom and more light! I love it! I made my self a natural scalp spray to freshen up and cool my scalp.
Years ago I had to reduce the amount of chemicals in my hair and scalp. My scalp started to regurlarly get irritated with hair coloring, dry shampoo and all the chemicals I was dumpig on it. Sometimes it still gets dry and irritated. This has been a wonderdul recipe for me and my son, who has the same problem sometimes. You can apply it to dry or wet scalp.
Easy natural scalp spray recipe (shake always before use):
- Spray bottle almost full of water
- 2 drops of doTerra’s peppermint
- 2 drops of doTerra’s lavender
- 2 drops of doTerra’s rosemary

Why doTerra’s essential oils?
Indian head massage includes a serie of massage movements that touches the scalp very softly and very firmly. Indian head massage also includes massage for shoulders, neck and upper arms. A person getting the massage sits in a chair with normal clothes on.
Few years ago Indian head massage was very popular in Finland. Now I feel that it’s not that popular anymore, but it is very relaxing and easy to do at home. Hair dressers use to offer it every where and it was taught in hair dresser schools. Of course spas, masseurs and beauticians still offer it. Indian head massage is extremely old thing, over 1000 years old, so I assume that it will come back as a trend again. If you need help with doing it at home, there are classes for it.

My own hair used to got greasy very quickly before. I used to wash it very often and I used chemical shampoos. Than I started to cut down the amount of washing and I left the chemical shampoos all together. It has balanced out my scalp a lot! Because I don’t use chemical hair products, except on a rare occasion, I don’t even have a need for a heavier wash.
When you are used to chemical shampoos, your hair gets different when you leave them out. So you need to be patient with the “rehab process”! 🙂 It gets worse, before it gets better! This also happened to me for few weeks. My hair was down a lot! 🙂 Usually now I rinse my hair and scalp with warm water. You can get good natural shampoos and conditioners (some are soap bars, where there is less packaging needed) from Lush, if you don’t feel like making your own!
