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.

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.
