Our product Kitchen Sink #1 is an herbal hair tea that promotes stimulation and growth by using the natural healing properties of Neem, Nettle, and Rosemary.
Neem (Azadirachta indica) has a wide range of medicinal properties, with all parts of the plant being used medicinally. Different parts of the neem tree have been used as traditional Ayurvedic medicine in India. Neem has been widely used in conventional medicine and has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Neem is loaded with antioxidants that prevent hair loss. It also has regenerative properties that support healthy cell division and stimulates hair follicle growth and function. Neem has anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties that help prevent baldness while it treats scalp issues like scalp psoriasis.
Nettle (Urtica dioica) has been a staple in herbal medicine since the ancient Egyptians. This herb offers a variety of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, polyphenols, and pigments — a lot of which act as antioxidants inside your
body. Nettle may also be beneficial in reducing inflammation.
Using nettle as a hair rinse is one of the oldest treatments for combating hair loss. Not only does nettle help with hair loss, it also helps regrow hair. Juice extracted from nettle leaves is also helpful with treating dandruff when massaged into the scalp.
Rosemary (Salvia rosmarinus) is not only known for its taste and smell; it is also widely known for the many health benefits it has. Rosemary has been used for its medicinal purposes for centuries, as it is a good source of iron, calcium, and vitamins A, C, and B6.
This herb is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which help boost the immune system and improve blood circulation.
Rosemary has been known to promote hair growth, prevent baldness, and treat dandruff and dry scalp.
Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) is considered antiseptic and an invigorator because of its cooling properties. Due to this, it helps aid in digestion and is especially beneficial if eaten after a meal.
Herbal tea made from peppermint leaves is soothing for a sore throat, cough, or cold. Peppermint is also great for headaches as well as sinus issues like allergies. Drinking peppermint tea or smelling peppermint oil was also found to improve memory and alertness, improving concentration overall.
Some people have used the oil as a remedy for hair loss. This might be because the menthol in peppermint essential oil is a vasodilator, and vasodilators improve blood flow. In many instances, hair loss occurs due to starved blood flow to hair follicles. Increasing circulation by incorporating peppermint could potentially improve hair growth and prevent some hair loss.
A study done in 2014 on mice showed that peppermint essential oils could hold a lot of promise for hair growth. Researchers noticed the hair grew faster and thicker, and blood flow to undernourished hair follicles increased.
Sage (Salvia officinalis) is a great culinary herb, and it also has a variety of medicinal benefits as well. The most common way to get the benefits of Sage is by chewing on it. If you have a toothache or a sore throat, chewing on Sage will help alleviate some of the pain because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
The volatile oil content in Sage also acts as an antimicrobial and can be useful in internal and external cleansing.
Sage may be beneficial in preventing hair loss, restoring hair shine, and hair growth. It also rejuvenates and strengthens the hair follicles. The use of sage can also boost blood circulation in the scalp, increasing the supply of nutrients to the hair follicles. Regular use of sage can help revitalize the hair, helping manage the problem of hair thinning.
