About Custom Formulas
Benefits of Custom Formulas
There are many pre-bottled essential oil formulas available for scalp and hair conditions. While these formulas may produce desired results, a customized formula based on individual circumstances can be much more effective.
A custom formula guarantees that the formula has not been sitting on a shelf for years, possibly losing some of its effectiveness. Custom formulas are blended when payment is received and shipped out the next day.
Essential oils when applied to the skin must be diluted in carrier oil. A young, healthy individual may use a higher potency formula than those who have medical concerns or those with sensitive irritated skin. Customizing allows the dilution rate and potency to be adjusted accordingly in order to produce the most potent formula while still addressing safety concerns.
There are many essential oils which can be used for the same purposes. Some essential oils that are powerful scalp stimulators cannot be used by those with certain health conditions. Peppermint oil, which is known to have an invigorating effect on hair follicles, should not be used by those with heart problems. Rosemary oil, well known for its positive effects on hair growth, should be avoided by those who are pregnant. Sage oil should not be used by those with high blood pressure. Juniper berry oil should be avoided by those with kidney problems. …The list goes on. Also certain persons may have known allergies to certain aromatherapy ingredients. Customizing allow us to avoid those oils and use equally effective oils that the individual is not allergic to. A generic one-size-fits-all scalp formula limits the essential oils which could be used.
Unique Individual Circumstances
A customized formula takes into account each person’s unique individual conditions. Hair loss is just one aspect to consider. Different oils are considered and incorporated into each formula according to the total scalp and hair condition. Considerations include dry or oily scalp and hair, itchiness, dandruff, rapidly falling hair, sensitive scalp, irritated scalp, fungal or bacterial conditions etc. Even factors such as stress, depression, anxiety, lack of motivation etc, can be taken into consideration; and these factors can be incorporated into the formulas.
Customizing aromatherapy formulas based on the “total person” is known as holistic aromatherapy. It was developed by Madame Marguerite Maury, an Austrian-born biochemist who used aromatherapy treatments for her client’s cosmetic problems. As their skin improved, they also reported pleasant and surprising side effects such as better sleep, pain relief, reduced symptoms of rheumatism, increased mental awareness and an overall better feeling. She began to study the effects of essential oils on emotions and moods. She discovered that she could blend personal aromatic formulas for her clients, which would address their whole system, based on an in-depth consultation and examination.
