DIY Essential Oil Herbal Hair Spray

DIY Essential Oil Herbal Hair Spray

So did you know that Essential Oils are awesome for hair care?  I’m sharing a great recipe for Herbal Hair Spray below using essential oils!

A dōTERRA user has this to say about their line of hair products:

“I’m not one to wear perfumes, but I have been pleasantly surprised with how wonderful these hair products have smelled. Maybe I’m just allowing it because of the results I have seen, who knows?  My favorite two recipes are the Dry Shampoo and the Beach Wave Salt Spray. I used to buy dry shampoo from the store and my husband would run away every time I used it because of the smell I guess? Thankfully, my get-ready time is not so scary anymore with dōTERRA’s recipe. It works just as well as the store brand and it smells a whole lot better! The Beach Wave Salt Spray it give my hair’s naturally lame waves a more body and makes me feel like I just came from the beach, which is hard to do living in Provo, Utah. I highly suggest you give some of them a try if you haven’t already!”

Check the bottom of the post to a link for 10 DIY recipes for hair care!  I have the recipe for Herbal Hair Spray below:


DIY Herbal Hairspray recipe:

Making your own hairspray is easy with essential oils and only takes a few simple ingredients you already have at home. It can easily be customizable to your favorite essential oils and to your preferred hold.*


8-ounce glass fine mist spray bottle

1 cup water

4 teaspoons sugar

*Tip: Use more or less sugar depending on how strong you want the hold to be.

2 drops Geranium essential oil

2 drops Lavender essential oil

2 drops Peppermint essential oil

2 drops Rosemary essential oil

2 drops Clary Sage essential oil

Note: Feel free to customize the essential oils to your preference. You can use one or all of the essential oils listed above. However, be careful using citrus oils as they can lighten your hair if exposed to UV light.


  1. In saucepan, combine sugar and water. Bring heat to boil and stir until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool.

  2. Pour essential oil into glass spray bottle and add cooled sugar water.

  3. Use as you would any other hairspray.
