How To Make The Oil Mix:
Below are the list of oils used in Naptural85’s recipe and the benefits of each
➤ Olive Oil (2.5 oz) – Olive Oil is great for our hair and skin. I am sure you have noticed the countless amount of hair and body products rich in olive oil. There is a reason for this. Olive oil is a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory oil and so, it is great for dandruff and some skin disorders. It is one of the few oils that actually penetrates the hair, leaves it moisturizing and also seals in the moisture. It also improves blood circulation on the scalp. Olive oil can leave your skin moisturized for longer compared to your regular lotion.
