Researchers at the Department of Dermatology, Aberdeen in the United Kingdom conducted a 7 month study in 1998 showing certain essential oils could treat Alopecia areata successfully. Essential oils stimulate hair regrowth due to their ability to stimulate the tiny blood vessels of the scalp where the hair follicles are created. This stimulation helps to increase the blood flow which carries the nutrients so vital to the follicles.
Eighty-six patients diagnosed as having alopecia areata, and the essential oils that they used in the research were as follows;
- Cedarwood Atlas (Cedrus atlantica)
- Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
- Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
- Thyme white (Thymus vulgaris)
Nineteen (44%) of 43 patients in the active group showed improvement compared with 6 (15%) of 41 patients in the control group (P = .008). An alopecia scale was applied by blinded observers on sequential photographs and was shown to be reproducible with good interobserver agreement (kappa = 0.84). The degree of improvement on photographic assessment was significant (P = .05). Demographic analysis showed that the 2 groups were well matched for prognostic factors.
The conclusion to this research was that treatment with these essential oils was significantly more effective than treatment with just the carrier oil alone (P = .008 for the primary outcome measure). They also claimed they had successfully applied an evidence-based method to an alternative therapy.

Second time purchasing from Quinessence and still very happy. Products arrived in a slightly large box for the products ordered to be honest but I ended up using it for something else and of course it's recyclable when I'm done with it so it's fine. The items were in perfect condition and so far have been very kind to my skin and nose :-)
