Hi Bob - and yes, you should find some suggestions in the 's a reply to a similar query on the message board - however, there seems to be some consensus of opinion for eo's with the following properties and indications: general tonic and stimulant - eo's high in monoterpenes are considered to be stimulating to the mucus glands in the skin and hair follicles which are stumulated to produce a more fluid mucus - and also are considered to have a mild irritant effect on the skin - which in this case would be a positive outcome. Examples are black pepper - grapefruit, lime, lemon, mandarin, orange, balsam fir (Abies balsamea), juniperberry, frankincense, nutmeg, Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), Spanish rosemary, and Angelica. Eo's high in monoterpenols are also safely stimulating to the skin and hair follicles - vasoconstrictive and tonifying - such as Rosewood (Aniba rosaeodora), Lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia), SWeet marjoram, Geranium and Basil linalool type. Also Mentha x piperita, Mitchum peppermint and or Mentha spicata, spearmint are very useful as is Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii) I would also go for eo's with significant ketone content since ketones can 'clear up' congestion - they're mucolytic and lipolytic and can stimulate circulation to the tissues. At concentration levels for a hair 'tonic' application there should be no hazard involved. Use the less notorious ones such as Rosmarinus officinalis 1,8 coneole (Moroccan type), Spearmint, Peppermint, Helichrysum italicum = everlasting, Cedrus atlantica = ATlas Cedar, and Dalmatian sage = Salvia officinalis. Use at 5% concentration in either an alcoholic base - pure grain alcohol - as a hair rub/spritzer before bed; or a veg oil base as a hair conditioner whilst soaking in the bath and then wash out as normal. Be sure to massage in every morning and night. Add to shampoos and conditioners too to use each and every day. Find a couple of combinations you LIKE fragrance-wise and then rotate every week or so to acoid build up of components - and then give yourself a full weeks rest every month. 5% means 25 drops of essential in total - of all the ones you want to include combined - to 25 ml of carrier. If you're working on fluid ounces, that = 30 drops to 30 mls -ish. Hope this helps Best Carolyn

If you're suffering from hair loss there are some great essential oils that may be able to help. 
There are multiple essential oils that can help in hair regrowth due to their ability to stimulate the tiny blood vessels of the scalp. By stimulating the tiny blood vessels located on the scalp, it helps improve the blood flow which carries the nutrients so vital to the follicles. By messaging the scalp and using the correct essential oils, it helps relax the muscles of the scalp and stimulates the micro-circulatory system thereby improving the transition of vital nutrients and minerals throughout the hair. 

The most common essential oils used to promote healthy hair would be Lavender, Clary sage, Juniper Berry, Atlas Cedarwood and Rosemary. 
Rosemary and Clary Sage oils are natural hair thickeners and creates greater hair volume and make ideal oils for treating hair loss. 
Its also a good idea to mix the essential oils with a carrier oil. One of the best oils for hair care would be the jojoba golden carrier oil. Jojoba oil can be used as a great healing hair conditioner and moisturiser. Due to its molecular structure, Jojoba oil has a very close resemblance to natural oil or sebum. 

A great recipe to try would be mixing Lavender, Rosemary, Clary Sage and Cedarwood together with Jojoba base oil. Mix the ingredients together and generously massage upon the scalp and hair 2-3 times a week. 

Hope you find this information useful! :)
