do you mix with more water that oil? or do you just use the oil straight? First, you should be mixing with an applicator like jojob or sweet almond, then mix at least 3/1 with water. water being the 3 parts

most healthfood stores. some pharmacies might have limited selections, but the ones there tend to be of less quality

completely depends on the oil. Sandlewood can cost between $15-$45 for .5 fl.oz. Peppermint around $6-$9. Tea tree is around that range too. Sandlewood is usually one of, if not the most expensive. Most of the ones you're looking for are anywhere between $6 and $11

.5 oz is actually a decent amount, so don't get turned off because it sounds so small. You can get a few hundred drops out of each bottle

Would the blends for hair loss help the hair grow back after chemo?

Biotin would probably be your best bet after Chemo. The blends work better for when you have thin spots or small bald spots. Eating rosemary is even better than using the oil, though

Ok, I finally got around to getting some oils. I got peppermint and rosemary oil. I want to just want to make a spray to moisturize it. How many drops should I put in and how much water?
