Hair & Scalp Mist Recipe Lavender & Tea Tree

Water is your hair’s best friend. It helps to keep your scalp and strands moisturized and supple. In this post, I would like to share a very basic and easy recipe for a hair and scalp mist.

Hair & Scalp Mist by Sénica

1 cup Water

4-6 drops Lavender Essential Oil

3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

A spray bottle


Pour water into spray bottle

Add essential oils

Shake well before use


I chose these essential oil options because Lavender soothes dry itchy scalp and smells great. Tea tree essential oil helps stimulate the scalp and regulate sebum production. It has a stronger smell so I used less. Lavender and tea tree essential oils are the only two essential oils that can be used directly on the skin without dilution. If you substitute essentials, be conscious of the amount used.

This mist will keep your hair and scalp moist and smelling great.  It is a good option if you sweat from your scalp a lot during workout sessions or deal with dryness. I hope you enjoyed this post. Do you make your own hair and scalp mist? If so, what’s your recipe? Do you add essential oils?

Until Next Time…Be Well.

    Hello! Itchy scalp/dandruff and thinning hair is what brought me to this site. I want to relieve dry scalp and help promote hair growth. My internet research so far has brought me to tea tree oil and lavender oil so that is why I decided to try this spray out. I know lavender works for minor burns and tea tree oil is great for skin clearing. (SORRY for the huge intro) Anyway, I don’t have any glass spray bottles so I used a smaller proportion in my plastic bottle, in order to use it all today. I did 4 oz of water with 2 lavender and 3 tea tree oil drops, because I don’t want to over do it on my scalp and because that is how it came out, haha.
    Immediately i noticed a cooling sensation (because I had a minor burn from sleeping with coconut oil and peppermint oil on my scalp with a shower cap, I know…but i’m learning). And the smell is beautiful. Overall the spray is relaxing and calming to my scalp. I used it all on my scalp and hair, and my hair is past my shoulders.

    so just commenting in order to see if anyone else has magical hair secrets 🙂

      Hi Ariel, Thank you for taking the time to read this post, try the hair mist recipe, and comment. I am sorry to hear about the challenges you are currently facing with your hair.

      First, consult you doctor for a thorough assessment of your situation. There are a number of cause for hair loss, various forms of alopecia, dermatitis, folliculitis, and genetics, being some of the common culprits. Your doctor will be able to help you diagnosis the cause and treatment options. Keeping in mind that I am not a medical professional, the following suggestions are based on my personal experience and clients I’ve worked with over the years.

      Regarding your scalp burn, essential oils are very potent and can damage your skin very easily, even in small amounts. Peppermint essential oil is top on my list, next to citrus oils. You may have use way to much essential oil. In future, make sure you are using skin safe percents of essential oil. Use drops, no squirts or caps ful, in your carrier oil ( you mentioned coconut oil in this case). Consider doing a shorter treatment during the day for 15-30 minutes before you shampoo. You can also brew a hair tea/rinse with fresh or dried peppermint leaves for a refreshing and stimulating result. DO NOT PULL THE SCABS OFF THE BURN ON YOUR SCALP!!! It can permanently damage your hair follicles, which means no more hair can grow from that follicle.

      Scalp massages are a good way to stimulation blood circulation to your hair follicles which helps with over all scalp health and hair growth. Diet is important as you need nutrients to feed your body and “accessories” such as your hair and nails. A good hair regiment that preserves your hair structure also helps with the appearance of your hair. Think a balance between simple protective styles and high heat, heavy product and manipulation. If you’re already loosing hair it may be wise to avoid to much manipulation of your hair. That includes excessive shampooing. So if you’re shampooing everyday try to cut back to 2 days a week, once may be better. Opt for gentle shampoos and conditioners in your hair care routine.
