About the Recipe

Having a receding hairline is never fun but this hair tonic spray can make your hair 'appear' thicker and the carefully chosen organic ingredients are all known to have crucial benefits for the scalp.

We may be directing our recipe towards men but millions of women worldwide experience hair loss and thinning hair, especially during menopause. In fact it's one of the most devastating symptoms that women are unable to talk about. Despite decades of research into the topic, a definitive solution for the problem has yet to appear. Hair loss wether you are male or female can shatter your self-esteem and resigning yourself to simply having less attractive hair, means many resort to medical procedures.

By focusing on the true root cause of the problem, scientists have been able to identify simple steps any man or woman can take to promote thicker hair naturally. Everything included in our recipe is 'rooted' (forgive the pun), in organic herbal ingredients that have properties known to promote wellness in your hair and scalp. So give it a try!

Nettle leaf extract contains high amounts of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help protect our scalp from damage and stimulate new hair growth. Nettle leaves are also rich in minerals like iron, magnesium, and zinc, which can all give our follicles a great boost.

Sage not only helps prevent hair loss, but it also rejuvenates and strengthens the hair follicles. The use of sage can also boost blood circulation in the scalp, increasing the supply of nutrients to the hair follicles.

Rosemary oil improves both hair thickness and hair growth, thanks to its ability to improve cellular generation. According to one study , rosemary oil performed as well as minoxidil, a common hair growth treatment, but with less scalp itching as a side effect.

Lavender also has antimicrobial properties. This means it helps prevent bacteria and fungi from growing. When applied to hair or scalp, this may prevent common hair or scalp issues. In particular, it may prevent itchy scalp or dandruff and even infections.
