I’ve always had long hair (except for that awkward year in 6th grade when I had a nice “my so called life” bob) so hair tangles are just part of the deal. It wasn’t until I had a 3 year old daughter with beautiful curly hair and reports of “head bugs” at her school that I needed a solution. Enter: YLEO. I did some digging and found several recipes for preventative care (aka no lice) and mixed it in with a DIY detangler using all my oils and the Young Living Lavender Mint conditioner.
Here is the recipe:
10 drops YL Tea Tree essential oil
10 drops YL Cedarwood essential oil
10 drops YL Rosemary essential oil
10 drops YL Lavender essential oil
2 cups water
blender (just trust me)
16oz clear glass spray bottles (here)
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. You’ll notice the conditioner is super thick so this helps the solution blend easier + faster.
Let it sit for 5-10 minutes while the foam rests (this is totally normal).
Using your funnel, pour into spray bottle.
Add water if necessary.
I ended up having extra so I filled a few smaller bottles and put one in the car, one in our pool bag and one in the bathroom for backup! I know I sound like a broken record but there are so many things you can use these oils + products for. The best part of all of it is that I know the products are clean + safe for my kids.
