So I'm seeing that the rosemary oil in tea tree darkens hair. Has anyone noticed that? Particularly blonde hair. I just started on a tea tree oil routine but I don't want to sacrifice my Goldie locks :/ Any input on this?

I love the scent of the fig oil and I probably would love the pom oil too as I use fig and pom CC (SB, SMC & 613). I know some people don't care for the fig scent and it appears that if you don't like fig, you will like tea tree. The reverse holds true for me at least.

Thanks for the list. I picked up some sweet orange and rosemary essential oils to add to my tea tree hair oil mix ( jojoba, sweet almond and argan carrier oils).

I also love the scent of the Fig oil, but the Pom oil is very heavy on the rosemary to my nose. I like the scent of rosemary, but not to wear...it's a very mannish smell to me. I was hoping the Pom oil would be more of a sweeter, fruity scent (like the Pom mousse, which to my nose smells like the Pom CC without the menthol). This is a weird mix to me and I won't repurchase. I wish I had gotten to smell the old Pom Bath, Body and Hair oil before the reformulation adding the rosemary.

Oh man, the sweet orange and rosemary essential oils added to my tea tree mix makes it smell really good but not over powering. I'm using it today for the first time with the new additions.

I just wanted to add that sweet almond mint oil is awesome for a stuffy nose. The minty vapors are really helpful for opening the sinuses. I'm sure the tea tree and lavender mint oils would work just as well. Another great use for the oils!
