On the lookout for that perfect recipe for making Onion Hair Oil at home? Don’t worry, we have got you covered with the best recipe that stays fresh for an entire month!

As we know onion oil has been a best hair oil for growth for a long time! It's all thanks to its sulfur content. Sulfur is a key ingredient in keratin, a protein that makes up most of your hair. 

When applied to the scalp, onion oil is thought to increase blood circulation, which may help nourish hair follicles and promote hair growth.

Plus, we've personalized it for you to ensure it's tailored to your specific Dosha type.

Step 1: Gather All the Ingredients!

You will require the following ingredients.

  • 2-3 medium-sized onions
  • Carrier oil (e.g., sesame oil, almond oil, coconut oil, ghee, olive oil, or sunflower oil)
  • Airtight glass container
  • A blender or grater

Step 2: Prepare the Onions and Extract the Juice

Peel and chop the onions into small pieces. If you're using a blender, blend the chopped onions into a paste and then strain the juice using a fine cloth or strainer. If grating, use a grater to extract juice directly.

Step 3: Mix with Carrier Oil

Combine the extracted onion juice with your Dosha-specific carrier oil in a glass container. The ratio is typically 1:3 (1 part onion juice and 3 parts carrier oil).

  • For Vatas – Sesame Oil, Almond Oil
