Hair loss is a significant dermatological disorder affecting about 50% men and women and some ethnic groups are found to be more susceptible than others. Current treatment options are limited for the long term management of this condition. Topical aromatherapy (involving the use of essential oils) has been previously trialled for the management hair loss with encouraging results. Our case study provides preliminary evidence for the use of kunzea oil for stimulating hair re-growth in a horse. Further studies are warranted.
