This rosemary-citron scalp treatment, designed by Barbara Close, founder of Naturopathica and author of Pure Skin, Organic and Beauty Basics (Chronicle, 2005), is especially good for fragile or damaged hair: Rosemary stimulates the scalp; avocado—rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, B, and C—helps condition hair; and grapefruit provides an uplifting scent.

You will need:
½ ounce avocado oil
4 drops rosemary essential oil
5 drops grapefruit essential oil
3 drops cedar essential oil
½ ounce glass bottle

Fill a glass bottle halfway with avocado oil. Add essential oils, cover, and shake well. Fill bottle with remaining avocado oil. Cover and shake a second time. Pour oil into palm of hand and massage mixture into scalp and hair.
