What can I make with these ingredients?

I am interested in making a daily spritz but don't know where to start. I currently have Castor oil, olive oil, vegetable glycerin, lavender oil and coconut oil...any suggestions??

    two tips

    If you live in a dry area I would skip the glycerin, & be easy the the castor oil.

    also

    Coconut oil is great to seal in the moisture after you spritz.

    Hope that helps

    For a spritz, all of that together would be way too overpowering. There used to be a recipe going on years ago (don't have any idea if it continued circulating recently...) that went something like this:

    1 Cup of warm water (preferably distilled)
    2 Tbsp. of your favorite CO
    A few drops of jojoba oil or other of your preference
    Shake everything together in a spray bottle and use when cooled for touch-ups.

    Some people added a few drops of glycerine too, but gotta be careful not overdoing it as it can make the hair tacky/greasy looking; others with fine and not very curly hair added a bit of Epsom salts to encourage curl forming, and so on. If I were you, I'd use the basic recipe and just play around with it until you get the results you seek. Good luck!

    Here is one of my recipes which you can adapt to suit. I prefer to weigh everything for accuracy.
