Hair loss isn’t wanted by anyone, but for a lot of people it’s a fact of life. Which aromatic oil has been shown to stimulate hair growth after six days.

Researchers from Monasterium Laboratory, Münster, claim that sandalwood oil can stimulate hair growth after six days.

They have reasoned that this is down to the “smell receptors”, which respond to the scent of sandalwood by multiplying keratin.

Keratin is structural protein found in hair, nails and skin.

It’s noted that the scent acts on the smell receptor OR2AT4 and blocks the genes that causes keratin cells to die.

A potential research area to cure baldness, a lot more work will need to be done to verify the results.

However, it’s a good start and who knows what exciting research results await.

The aromatic sandalwood oil comes from the wood and roots of the East Indian sandalwood tree.

A pleasant smell, sandalwood oil is used as an ingredient in many perfumes, cosmetics and soaps.

The properties of sandalwood oil include santalol – an organic compound.

Santalol is responsible for its scent and calming effects.

Now the essential oil may help to promote hair growth.
