By using just a few drops of essential oils, I was able to make a very affordable hair spray that works and I don’t have to worry about the chemical or toxin that would usually be in it.

I love this recipe due to the effectiveness but also how versatile it can be. Even if you have only one of the essential oils mentioned below these products are still effective.
