Daily bug spray for hair

These creepy crawlies that invaded Miss G hair have had me in an oily frenzy, not only is all the bed linen being washed, mattresses cleaned but now I have made a spray to use each day on the girls hair.

Enter pinterest (I love this for a source of inspiration).


The recipe (below) called for a 100ml spray bottle I only had a 30ml so adjusted accordingly.

10 drops of Rosemary, 10 drops of Lavender, I also added a couple of drops of Geranium, top with water.

I spray this on the girls hair before school and after school each day and whilst it’s too early to say how well it works I am loving the smell of their hair.

How do we wash Rapunzel’s hair?

With a family of girls all of which have long or thick hair, sometimes both you could imagine the amount of shampoo and conditioner we go through (especially when they do it themselves), it gets very expensive.

I had been considering making my own for a little while but I was sceptical, would they really clean our hair? Would it make our hair dry?

I set about searching for recipes, after much searching I found one that has only 2 ingredients plus whatever essential oils you decide to use.

Shampoo – 1 tbsp of baking soda, 1 cup of water 10 drops lavender 10 drops tea tree. Conditioner – 1 tbsp ACV 1 cup of water 10 drops lavender and 10 of tea tree.

I chose lavender and tea tree essential oils, I’m happy to report that this blend has not only cleaned our hair beautifully but left it soft.

To store the shampoo and conditioner I purchased bottles from the Wasteless Pantry,they are 1L bottles so I can easily make up a big batch.


Love these bottles, but more importantly I love how easy it is to make and the money it saves me.
