"These oils have been around for centuries if they had any effect on male pattern baldness everybody would know by now" I can understand this statement but there is no reason being too sceptical to try this when you don't have other options. Anecdocts, reputation and scientific research slightly support evidence for possible effectivness and there is no evidence against. Many of these oils have reputation of being beneficial through the times and some are now later supported by pre-clinical research that shows a possible mechanism of action for preventing male pattern baldness or stimulate hair-growth. For example: The peppermint oil 3 % study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4289931/ Clinical studies: The rosemary oil vs minoxidil 2 % https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25842469 And the scottish study altough AA: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9828867 Unfortunately many of this studies of "alternative treatments" is either bad designed or shady. But I was thinking if we can do an ultimate forum here to share anecdots or maybe to run experiment together. Essential Oils: Lavender, Cedarwood Rosemary Peppermint Clary Sage Thyme I was thinking of maybe 5-6 oil, where they are parted to two different formulas and taken each EOD. Concentration range 0,05-0,5 %. For example Lavender, cedarwood, rosemary in jojoba monday wednesday friday etc Peppermint, Thyme, Clary sage in jojoba tuesday thursday saturday wtc And then for everyday use a liquid alcoholic solution with very low concentration of all of these for the morning and apply the oil in the evening. I am still doing research and screening for the best supported oils. Do you guys have any tips? I have bought rosemary which I formulated 0,5 % in jojoba oil applying 1-2 ml. Direct effect (only tried 3 days): Itch gone Very nice scalp sensation Cognitive enhancement and mood lifting I want to try each oil separetly before making a complete formulation but I am running out of patience. Anyway is there someone that would be interested in joining in Essential oil experiment? If we can gather 10 people+ that try this for 3-6 months I think it will be huge contribution to the community even if we get 0 results.
