Pumpkin oil DIY

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
― Henry David Thoreau

Do you know how I told you in the last blog that my scalp was itching because of the large amount of dry shampoo? Weeell…. that day I was walking around, scratching like a mad man.

After so much scratching I knew that I shouldn’t put anything aggressive on my scalp and that I needed something soothing, healthy and natural and this means-DIY.

It’s fall, it’s pumpkin season so it would be okay to talk about pumpkin oil. Why pumpkin oil? Well, it’s one of my favorite oils. I like how it smells, it tastes great and I use it in really large quantities.

Kürbis means pumpkin in German

What do hair and pumpkin oil have in common, what do they have to do with each other, you may be wondering? I was surprised by this discovery too.

like I said I use this oil a lot so I did a little research on how healthy it is and I found (to my great surprise) that it is very good for hair.

Pumpkin seed oil

What’s this all about:

-nutty flavor
-is source of omega-3, zinc, high vitamins E content, and phytosterol
-can help nourish your hair by making it soft
-can be used against scalp dryness
-can assist with hair growth

How to use it?

I found the simplest possible recipe-pour some oil over your palms and spread it in circular motions around the scalp, massage well and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Wash your hair with shampoo and lukewarm water.


A very quick, easy recipe. I easily rinsed it out of my hair and the scalp is not oily (thank God). My scalp no longer itches me. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the oil or the fact that I rinsed the dry shampoo out of my hair but I strongly recommend this method because of the high amount of vitamins in the oil. Put pumpkin oil on the scalp and make yourself a salad with pumpkin oil.

Attack your body with vitamins from the outside and the inside.

A little warning
If you are allergic to pumpkin seeds do not do this method.
