Recipe: Cradle Cap Oil

Cradle cap is common, and a result of overproduction of the oil by the sebaceous glands of the scalp. A great way to help loosen the flakes and restore balance is with a daily oil massage. Jojoba oil closely resembles the sebum produced by the scalp, and can help signal the body to stop oil overproduction.

Instructions:

  1. Mix ingredients in a small bowl; shake or stir to combine.
  2. Store in an amber glass bottle, or in a cool, dark place.

How to Use Cradle Cap Oil:

  1. Warm the oil and massage gently onto scalp.
  2. Let oil soak in at least 10 minutes.
  3. Gently brush loosened scales from the scalp with a very soft brush or warm washcloth.
  4. Alternatively, leave oil on overnight, then gently pat scalp with warm, damp washcloth in the morning.
  5. If flakes do not easily loosen, do not pick them off, as this leaves scalp more vulnerable to infection.
