Most women are unaware of the beauty benefits of parsley oil. Parsley is a herb, basically used for culinary purposes. But, did you know that parsley essential oil has amazing benefits for hair and skin? Read further to know the ways of using parsley essential oil in your skin and hair care routine.
Parsley acts as a carminative, anti-microbial, antiseptic, astringent, febrifuge, detoxifier, and anti-rheumatic agent, and most importantly, it works wonders for your skin and hair. There are numerous benefits of parsley for your health and body. Parsley essential oil, similarly, is great for your skin and hair, and you might be missing out these amazing benefits it has got.
1. Parsley oil for lips:
Chapped lips are generally caused due to frequent sun exposure, leading to dry and peeling lips. They can be painful sometimes. Moisturising and healing lip balms could help but, nothing can work better than parsley oil for chapped lips. It not only heals the lip cracks and peeling lips but also, makes your lips even softer.
2. Parsley oil for hair growth
Parsley oil helps to promote hair growth. How? Jut mix 2-3 drops of Parsley essential oil with a carrier oil, and apply gently all over the scalp to promote hair growth. However, be patient enough to notice significant growth, and don’t feel lazy to caress your long hair.
3. Parsley oil for wrinkles:
Wrinkles are the first signs of premature ageing. Though anti-aging creams give results, the moment you stop using them, your skin starts showing the wrinkles again. On the other hand, parsley oil gradually helps in lessening the appearance of wrinkles, and prevents their occurrence, too.
4. Parsley oil for dandruff:
Most shampoos that promise to help in getting ‘rid’ of dandruff do not really help. Mix few drops of parsley essential oil with powdered parsley seeds and apply it over your scalp. Leave it overnight to get a dandruff free scalp. Trust me, you’ll keep caressing your hair 🙂
5. Parsley oil for grey hair:
Grey hair can be obnoxious. Want your hair colour to remain as it is? Then, using parsley essential oil to maintain the natural colour of your hair could be a boon. Also, use parsley oil with a carrier oil consistently to maintain the natural health of your hair.
6. Parsley oil for treating hair loss:
Well, not scientifically proven, but many women observed a slight relief with their hair loss when they used parsley oil. Simply massage some parsley oil on your scalp. The massaging will help in promoting the blood circulation, while the parsley oil will help in keeping hair loss at bay. Relieving, right?
7. Parsley oil to get even skin tone
A drop of parsley oil mixed with apple cider vinegar helps to tone the skin. It treats any skin discolorations and makes your skin tone even.
8. Parsley oil for moisturising the skin:
Though parsley oil doesn’t work great for the moisturizing purpose, it is used extensively in moisturizing lotions, and these lotions work greatly for your skin. It can heal excessive dryness without any side effects.
9. Parsley oil to prevent acne:
The most unappreciated skin issue, acne can be healed with a consistent intake of parsley. Yay or nay? You can even apply it topically right there on your skin to prevent acne. Just crush some parsley leaves, and mix it with curd and apply!
10. Parsley oil for smooth hair:
Make a paste of crushed parsley leaves and yoghurt and apply on hair, especially on the lengths. Leave the paste for 30 minutes and wash! Caress your ultra smooth hair.
Precautions: Parsley oil is a naturally unappreciated herb oil that has to be taken care of while using on your skin or hair. Here are some major precautions you’ll need to look upon:
1. Always dilute the parsley oil with a carrier oil before using.
2. Before using the oil all over your skin, do a patch test.
