Mix all the ingredients well in a glass jar. Avoid using a plastic jar or any metal jar for this purpose as the natural components tend to react with them.

Tip to get the most out of hair oil:

To get the best out of any oil, try the double boiling technique. Most of us are aware of the benefits of hot oil massage but whenever we heat any oil, most of the nutrients are lost. To get the most use the double boiler technique. I usually take my bowl of oil and place it over a glass of hot water and wait until the oil is fully warm.

Another way is to apply the oil and wrap your hair in a plastic cap or just if you don’t like wrapping plastic around your hair, try wrapping our hair with a warm towel. You can warm your towel by dipping it in hot water and squeezing out all the excess water from it.
