This fabulous rose scented DIY sea salt spray for hair gives your hair volume and texture any time you need it! Simply spray it on then scrunch for sexy tousled beach waves.

My sea salt spray recipe is inspired by Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, a product which has become one of my go to hair staples based on affordability and performance. Like Not Your Mother’s sea salt spray, my sea salt spray recipe also contains dimethicone to counteract the drying effect salt can have on hair. (Their product also contains Sea Kelp Extract, however I don’t currently have this in my ingredient stash. But don’t be afraid to try it on your own!) Rose water is also used to give it its fabulous fragrance.

If you prefer not to use silicones in your hair care products, you can simply omit both the Dimethicone (silicone) and the Polysorbate 20 (emulsifier) which is used to keep the Dimethicone mixed with the water. For more hold double the sea salt and omit the Epsom salt. For less hold do the opposite.

Ingredients:

3.25 oz. distilled hot water
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon Epsom salt
1 ml Dimethicone
1 ml Polysorbate 20
.25 oz. rose water (or rose hydrosol)

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the distilled water into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave until hot but not quite ready to boil.

Use measuring spoons to measure out the salts then stir into the hot water until the salt has dissolved completely.

Now, using a graduated transfer pipette for each, measure out the Dimethicone and Polysorbate 20 and stir into the salt water mixture.

Finally weigh out the rose water and stir into your DIY sea salt spray for hair. (As this is a water based product, you may also want to consider using a preservative such as Optiphen ND to prevent the growth of bacteria, fungus and yeast.)

This fabulous rose scented DIY sea salt spray for hair gives your hair volume and texture any time you need it! Simply spray it on then scrunch for sexy tousled beach waves.

Using a small funnel pour the sea salt spray into a 4 oz. glass bottle and close with a fingertip mister. Shake well then spritz onto hair as desired. You can use your new DIY sea salt spray on damp, towel dried hair or dry hair for different looks.

DIY Natural Homemade Body Cream Recipe with Rose and Ylang Ylang for Natural Beauty

Hello Soap Deli News Readers!

Becca here, from The Dabblist. I blog about recipes, DIY tutorials, life hacks and all around inspiration to create a happy and healthy life.

How to Craft A Natural Body Cream

I started off trying to make a facial cream, but found that this recipe was much better suited for my dry elbows and legs right after a shave rather than my face. The soothing oils provide deep moisture to your skin with the sweet smell from the rosewater and ylang ylang.

The concept is relatively simple. You mix waters and oils together to create the cream. It is a delicate process that has taken me a few tries to perfect. Making a cream is an exercise in patience and being present during the process. It is meditative.

DIY Beauty Recipe - How to Make Homemade Rose and Ylang Ylang Body Cream

 Natural Rose & Ylang Ylang Body Cream Recipe

Waters:

2/3 c. rose water

1/3 c. aloe vera gel

5 drops ylang ylang oil

5 drops rosewater concentrate

Directions:

Combine the waters and essential oils in a bowl with a whisk and set aside to come to room temperature.

 Oils:

1 oz. beeswax pellets (or grated beeswax)

1/4 tsp. lanolin

1/3 c. almond oil

1/3 c. apricot oil

1/3 c. coconut oil

Directions:

Combine the oils in a bowl and place over boiling water to melt together. Remove once melted and place in blender.

Now comes to exercise in patience. Allow the oils in the blender to come to room temperature. You can place it in the refrigerator to speed up the process, but make sure it doesn’t completely solidify.

Once the oils have come to room temperature, blend them on a high speed and slowly pour in the water mixture into the center of the swirl. Watch the mixture turn into a frothy cream, similar to buttercream frosting. Once it reaches that consistency, you can turn off the blender.

Pour your cream into jars and allow to sit and solidify a bit more.

Now, if you find that you didn’t wait long enough for the oils to cool (which has happened to me before), you’ll see the oils and waters begin to separate in your cream. Fear not! This does not mean your cream is a fail, but rather needs a little shaking right before use.

Be sure to store in a jar (with a clean lid to avoid the growth of mold) and keep in a cool, dark cupboard for up to 3 months. You can refrigerate too, though it isn’t necessary.
