Easy Aromatherapy Shampoo Recipe

Aromatherapy Shampoo RecipeI was torn on what title to give this recipe because this recipe isn't made from scratch, and I'm not trying to be misleading. Making a liquid shampoo base from scratch can be quite complex and can take quite a bit of experimentation. Instead, we begin by working with an unscented shampoo base and add essential oils. Very easy!


  • 7 fl. oz. Unscented Shampoo Base (sellers of natural products and aromatherapy products sometimes sell SLS-free unscented shampoo, shower gel plus lotion bases)
  • 1 tablespoon Jojoba (optional, but can supply the hair with added hydration)
  • 40 drops Lavender Oil
  • 10 drops Rosemary Oil
  •  5 drops Ylang Ylang Oil
  • 8 oz. Bottle

Directions: Add about 7 fl. oz. of Unscented Shampoo Base to a mixing bowl and blend in your essential oils. Mix well. Use a funnel to pour your shampoo into the 8 oz. bottle.

Enjoy experimenting with other essential oils in this recipe. But do be sure to heed the safety precautions for each essential oil that you use and avoid essential oils that are known to cause skin irritation.

To Use: Use as you would use a typical shampoo.
