Scent Suggestions for Hair Products and Liquid Soaps


Scent Suggestions for Hair Products

We are often asked which fragrances are best suited to Hair Conditioners, Shampoo and Liquid Soaps.  I tend to use fruity and sweet fragrances more for Conditioner and Liquid Soap rather than for Shampoo, but most of these work nicely in all products.  Of course there are loads more that you may like - such as Sparkling Snowdrops, Cold Water, Shave and a Hair Cut and the list goes on! 


Essential Oils for Hair Care

Suggested Essential Oil Blends for adding to Shampoo, Conditioner and Liquid Products

For Essential Oils, many customers already know their own favourites, but we like Fresh Blend, Float Blend, Happiness Blend, Heavenly Blend and Sensual Blend for liquid products.  Citrusy Essential Oils and particularly Bergamot work well on their own if you don't want to blend notes together.

The below are very useful blends for Hair Care:

Normal Hair and Scalp Blends

Useful Essential Oils: Roman Chamomile, Geranium, Lavender, Mandarin, Neroli, Petitigrain, Rose

Of course these are just my personal favourites, but there are lots of others.  I personally don’t care for many florals in my hair, so that is why there aren’t many listed here except Linden Blossom and Violet - so if you are a floral kind of person - go for it! :)

And never forget BLENDING – this allows you to create your personal list of very best favourites!
