Hinoki Essential Oil For Hair Loss

Hinoki essential oil is an aromatic oil which comes from the Asian cedar tree, Chamaecyparis obtusa, and has a lovely woody, spicy-citrusy smell.

Various important compounds in hinoki oil such as sesquiterpenes and phytoncides, give it certain therapeutic properties.  These include pain-relieving, stress-relieving, anti-microbial, anti-tumour and anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as hair-growth promoting properties [1][2][3][4][5].

When combined with the other ingredients in this recipe, especially the lavender and rosemary oils which both stimulate follicular growth and proliferation, you end up with a really powerful anti hair-loss treatment.  But without the dangerous side effects of synthetic pharmaceutical drugs.

Hinoki Essential Oil Hair Treatment


2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil

7 drops hinoki essential oil

4 drops rosemary essential oil

4 drops lavender essential oil


1  Very gently warm the coconut oil, so that it softens enough to stir in the essential oils.  Mix them together well.

2  With your fingers apply some of the oil treatment to your head and gently massage tit into your scalp, adding more if needed.

3  Leave on for at least an hour, to allow the oils to be warmed and absorbed by your skin.

4  Then thoroughly wash off the treatment with a gentle shampoo.

5  Repeat 2-3 times a week for maximum effect.
