Edens Garden Essential Oil Texturizing Sea Salt Spray for Hair

There are tons of ways to get those textured, just jumped in the ocean, effortlessly gorgeous locks. But who wants to deal with curling irons, serums, pastes, and bobby pins when you can simply spritz and go? The down side to those store bought sea salt sprays is that many contain harsh ingredients, like silicon, which can cause heavy build up in our hair and add toxic, carcinogenic chemicals to our bodies. Yuck! That’s why we asked our talented team of aromatherapists for a solution to our flat-out flat hair problem. Luckily, they delivered, and this recipe for a texturizing Sea Salt Spray is making waves. What’s better is that it can be whipped up in a jiff using ingredients found in the kitchen (and it's chemical free!).

 

What you’ll need

11 ounce spray bottle

2 ½ tablespoons of Sea Salt

1 teaspoon of Coconut carrier oil

1 teaspoon of Aloe

1 cup of warm water

6 drops of Tea Tree essential oil

8 drops of Grapefruit or Elemi essential oil

10 drops of Rosewood essential oil

6 drops of Rosemary Spanish essential oil

The results for this sea salt hair spray will leave your hair looking beautiful and beachy!


Details, Details

Simply combine the ingredients above, shake and spray throughout damp hair. Fluff and comb fingers through hair. This recipe is perishable, but should last you throughout the summer (about three months) when stored in a cool, dry, and dark area. Grapefruit is a phototoxic oil, meaning it’s safe to be used when not in contact with sunlight, so if you’re planning on going to the beach but don’t want to commit to jumping in the ocean for a natural wave, substitute Elemi for Grapefruit and enjoy the summer sun.

    Hi Dana! Yes, both of these carrier oils can be substituted for Sweet Almond or Coconut.

    I’m allergic to coconut and tree nuts (so the almond oil suggestion won’t work). Any nut-free alternatives? Avocado or Safflower?

    Hi Marguerite! You can use a Eucalyptus Radiata instead!

    Drys my hair out will try to use less salt . The salt is the drying part just like when your hair has been at the beach . Smells great in my hair like a big diffuser. Love your oils

    Hi
    Is there anything I can substitute for the Teatree oil? It just doesn’t agree with me.
