a study of alopecia areata. Though the conclusion of that study does not automatically translate into regrowth of edges that suffered via other means (e.g., traction alopecia), it may not hurt to see if this mixture works for you.
DISCLAIMER: Essential oils are very potent. Please consult your doctor before using them, especially if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or have a medical condition.
Ingredients (and portions from the journal):
3 mL of jojoba oil
20 mL of grapeseed oil
2 drops of thyme essential oil
3 drops of lavender essential oil
3 drops of rosemary essential oil
2 drops of cedarwood essential oil
Mix all the essential oils into your carrier oils (jojoba and grapeseed) and store in a container. Use mixture to massage your edges for 2 minutes before going to bed. Then wrap your edges with a warm towel to aid in the absorption of the oils. Do this nightly for several months.
