herbal oils that are nice to add

teatree oil very strong anticeptic kil germs helps with dandruff (use sparingly too much will cause dryness and worsen scalp itch
rosemary excelent for dandruff smells nice
pepermint (use only a very small amount) gives a cooling tingling feeling soothes itches and clears sinuses (overdo it and you will be in tears with runny nose for days, (recomend using only a few drops.. try 1-5 till you see how string you like it)
thyme as a tea or oil reduces oiliness
