Dandruff is more common to male and it begins around the age of 20 or puberty period. Anyone can have dandruff. The question is what factors can trigger to have dandruff and how to treat and get rid of this pesky thing in your head. 

Infrequent washing, shampooing habits, weak immune systems are just a few of the many factors that cause of having dandruff. Though it is chronic, but a treatable condition. There are many ways to treat and medicate dandruff; one of these is a home-remedy treatment using essential oil, which I just did recently to one of my loved family.

Sharing below is the home remedy ingredients and process on how to use essential oil to get rid of pesky dandruff.


2 tbsp Apple Cided Venigar

2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

¼ cup water


In a bowl, mix well all the ingredients. Apply to your scalp and massage it for a few minutes. Focus on the itchy and flaky part of your scalp. Let it set for about 30 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Repeat doing this process twice a week until you complete relief from itching and pesky dandruff.

As for this treatment, I used Doterra Peppermint Essential Oil for it soothes an itchy scalp and helps to absorb excess oils on the scalp. The combination of essential oil and apple cider vinegar are a perfect match in controlling dandruff. Actually, Ms Joylee shared to me some knowledge of essential oil healthy benefits and usage.
