In a 4-ounce spray bottle, mix Jojoba Oil, Polysorbate 80, and essential oils until the mixture looks cloudy. Add in 1 ounce of Everclear (or at least 120 proof grain alcohol) and shake to mix.

In a glass bowl, add Pink Himalayan Salt, 1 Ounce of Lavender Hydrosol, and warm (not boiling) distilled water. Mix until the salt has fully dissolved and then pour into the alcohol mix. Shake before use as the salt will sink to the bottom. Spray, and enjoy!

  1. I would LOVE to try this salt spray but unfortunately my type of hair doesn’t do well at the beach, LOL..it’s so curly and unruly. So happy for all you who can actually get nice results 🙂 Enjoy!!

  2. I am always looking for a good DIY hair texturizing spray. So excited to try this! Thanks for doing all the work to create recipes like this. Always nice to know what’s going on the hair and skin 😉 Thanks again and I will be creating soon 🙂

  3. Don’t use if you have curly hair! Stay away from alcohol based blends that will dry out the ends and cause your hair to split.

  4. Having fine hair that doesn’t have much body in summer I’m intrigued by this idea. I need to do more research, but thanks for sharing this recipe.

  5. This recipe sounds fantastic! I don’t have a few of the ingredients but it’s a good excuse to get them! Can’twait to try it!

  6. Polysorbate 80 is NOT a safe ingredient – look it up and read about it before using. I just did and am surprised that PT would recommend using something unsafe on our bodies.

  7. Thank you for another great recipe! My 8 yr old has become very interested in making our own body care products. We are learning oils together and these recipes help ward off the chemical filled bottles she sees at the stores.❤

  8. Thank you for another great recipe. Will be trying it out with my beach loving 8 year old. She loves making diy body care products and we have been learning oils together. ❤

  9. So excited to try this! My hair is super fine and thin and it’s really hard to get any shape to hold. I bet this would help give it some texture to hold a style!

  10. Made this yesterday I LOVE how it gives that natural beach wave to my hair!! Thanks for another great DYI:)

  11. Definitely want to make this! Is there any reason to use lavender hydrosol over a different one? I have rose, melissa, and helichrysum.

  12. my sons hair LOVES Sea Salt so I’m sure to try this one out & take out and mix around a few of these oils

    1. https://www.soapgoods.com is my supplier for Polysorbate 80 and all other ingredients for lotions, creams, serums, and soap making. They ship quickly and always stand behind their wonderful products. I have been using them for years and have always been more than pleased with their service, support, and products.

  13. I can NOT wait to try this! Sounds so good! …. also, maybe plant therapy could start selling polysorbate too?!?

  14. I haven’t ordered any hydrosols yet, but this recipe may be the thing to make me do it. I have curly-wavy hair and it loves sea salt sprays!

  15. This is just the excuse I needed to finally get Polysorbate 80. I have a DIY salt spray, but it always clogs the sprayer. Hopefully PT’s recipe works better!

  16. Ooohh cant wait to dry! I love the beach hair. I wonder if endless summer would work as well, for that “summery” scent

    1. One word of caution, the lime that they recommend is not phototoxic, so if you substitute other citrus oils be aware of any photosensitive concerns that might accompany that substitution. PT kindly provides the information on each oil’s page, so you can easily find that information. Good luck and take care. 🙂

  17. I go through sooooo much salt spray weekly because my hair is so long and it’s my easy go to- I cannot wait to whip up this DIY salt spray that is chucked full of all the chemicals I’m sure my store bought one is!! Thanks PT 🙂
