Anointing is the ancient practice of using oils or other substances to bless or invoke the Divine. The Moon is seen as a divine heavenly body in many spiritual paths, and often times oils were left out in moonlight to impart its blessed properties. One of the most common Moon representations is that of the Triple moon: waxing, full, and waning.
Hair care by the moon is an old practice, and some tales say that even cutting your hair by the moon can grant different effects. Trim on the New Moon and your hair will grow faster. Trim on the Full Moon and your hair will grow thicker and fuller.
Triple Moon Hair Anointing Oil is named after the Triple Moon for the three benefits it imparts to hair and scalp: Protection, Growth, and Soothing.
- Hair Protection: The waxing phase of the moon is for drawing things to you. This blend of oils imparts protection to the scalp as well as the length of the hair, keeping hair strong with needed lipids and vitamins, helping it to retain precious moisture.
- Hair Growth: The full moon is the most potent of all lunar phases, and the ingredients in this mix help stimulate the scalp and nourish follicles to increase hair growth.
- Scalp Soothing: The waning phase of the moon is for casting negative things away from you and the oil’s ingredients help to sooth itching, flaking, or irritated scalps.
Directions & Storage
Directions for Scalp: Use a dropper to draw thin lines of oil across the scalp, starting from the forehead, going back over the top of the head towards the nape of the neck. Use the pads of your fingers to massage the oil into the scalp and leave on at least an hour before showering.
Directions for Length: Lighter than most hair oils, this will help your hair to keep in moisture without weighing it down. To use, place three to five drops of oil in your palms and rub them together until warm. Then smooth your hands over your already combed hair. Your hair should not feel oily and greasy, only soft and shiny. For a deep treatment you can apply more oil to the length, then wear it under a shower cap or plastic wrap until showering. The heat from your head will help open the cuticle of the hair, allowing it to take in more of the nurturing oil.
Storage: Triple Moon Hair Anointing Oil will keep unrefrigerated for 6-9 months, and for over a year if refrigerated when not in use.
