You can make egg oil (Urdu: Roghan Baiza Murgh, INCI name: Ovum Oil) yourself at home to care for your hair and skin. Egg oil helps to fight acne, hair loss, gray hair and signs of aging. It is safer to use than egg yolks, because they can be contaminated with the salmonella bacteria and cause serious inflammation.

Step 7. Filter the oil

Squeeze the oil from the yolks and filter the oil through a fine cloth or sieve. Store the oil in a clean, dry glass or ceramic (not metal or plastic) bottle. Use a nylon or synthetic cloth, as cotton absorbs a lot of oil that you can't use. If you see solid particles in the oil, filter the oil again to make sure you only have clear transparent oil. Do not expose the oil to water and do not put anything in the bottle to make the oil last longer. You can keep the oil in the refrigerator for three years and at room temperature for one year. If you are careful, the oil will remain sterile for up to 5 years.

Use the oil once a week for a scalp massage to treat hair loss, dandruff and graying hair or fight acne. Always use a clean, dry spoon to avoid contaminating the oil with moisture.

  • Make sure the bottle is clean and dry, that the cap or cork is on properly and that you put the bottle in a dark place so that the oil stays well.

  • With 50 eggs you get about 150 ml of oil.


  • Let the pan cool completely before trying to squeeze the oil from the yolks.
  • You will likely encounter a lot of smoke and stench when you make egg oil. If possible, do this outside or in a well-ventilated area.
