Dandruff, Depression And Dermatitis - Cure by aromatherapy

DANDRUFF This scalp disorder seems to affect nearly everyone at sometime in their lives. It occurs when dead skin cells accumulate on the scalp and fail to shed themselves normally. They build up, and then fall off in large scales. There are other problems, which have similar symptoms to dandruff, such as psoriasis and eczema. So to know your particular disorder, visiting a doctor is a must.

If suffering from dandruff, try massaging the following blend into your scalp twice a week before shampooing. Leave on for thirty minutes before washing with a mild shampoo.
