Rosemary EVOO hair treatment

So a couple of weeks ago I made the fresh rhubarb mouth wash that was featured on the Dr.OZ show from Bryce Wylde and Frankie Flower's new collaboration book on health and plants.  This blend of rosemary and Olive oil is meant for preventing hair loss by increasing the blood flow to the roots of hair and scalp. 

Not that I'm balding I figured why not give it a try!  For those of you who don't know, I've suffered from psoriasis from an early age and it still remains to be on my scalp so from time to time I will do a warm EVOO hair treatment, and when I saw this I figured why not throw some rosemary in and see how it goes!

1/2 cup EVOO - don't be afraid to use the good stuff - Warn it in a small sauce pan on low for just a few seconds until you can stick your ringer in and it feels warm to touch.  This way it absorbs in the scalp much easier.

A couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary, remove the leaves and leave the stalk behind.

Blend it all in a blender until it looks like the following:

At this point I would strongly suggest running it through a fine sieve to get rid of all the woody rosemary or else it will make the biggest mess in your bathroom.  Use the strained rosemary/evoo mixture and put it all over your hair.

How long until you'd wash it off?  Well, I usually do my EVOO treatment for about 2 hours minimum so just wrap your head up and forget about it.  It's best to do on not so clean hair, so whenever you're closer to showering and maybe on a weekend.

Afterwards you'll smell like rosemary, which is nice!

If you have any leftover in your blender, maybe you wanna make some rosemary evoo potatoes or something ;)
