Eucalyptus oil is pressed from eucalyptus leaves to make a condensed essential oil with many uses. One purpose is to stimulate the scalp and encourage new hair growth, especially in the case of alopecia. This method can also be used on other areas where hair growth is desired -- such as the beard area for men. It will not work overnight, but it has shown positive results in the long run. Use the oil regularly to see results.

Step 1

Mix 15 to 30 drops of eucalyptus essential oil with half a cup of a carrier oil, such as sesame or olive oil.

Step 2

Massage the oil into the skin for several minutes.

Step 3

Repeat morning and night as long as the treatment is required.
