3 x DIY Himalayan Salt Sprays for Your Hair, Skin and Body!

Himalayan salt is touted for its incredible health benefits, packed with over 84 trace minerals such as calcium, magnesium and iron. But did you know that Himalayan pink salt can also be used for hair and beauty?

From texturising hair sprays to refreshing facial toners, read on as we explain how to make your own DIY Himalayan salt sprays below using just a few simple ingredients.

What are the benefits of Himalayan Salt Sprays?

Himalayan pink salt is mineral-rich which makes it ideal for beauty, skincare and wellness! The minerals found in Himalayan salt may help to:

  • Relieve sore muscles
  • Nourish dry skin
  • Cleanse and minimise pores
  • Fight bacteria and neutralise odours

Just to name a few! Creating DIY Himalayan salt sprays is a great way to utilise this mineral-rich ingredient for hair, skincare and beauty - and as a bonus, it’s completely natural and free from chemicals and toxins.

DIY Himalayan Salt Spray: Facial toner

Facial toners are used to remove all of the surface oils and dirt that can clog up our pores, while helping to tighten and refresh our skin.

Himalayan salt is a natural astringent, meaning it causes the contraction of skin cells. This makes it the perfect ingredient for a DIY facial toner!

To make your own facial toner using Himalayan salt, simply fill a small spray bottle with:

  • ½ cup filtered water
  • 2 teaspoons fine Himalayan salt
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 drops geranium oil, lavender oil or chamomile oil.

Keep the spray bottle handy at your bathroom sink and apply with a cotton pad after cleansing, morning and night. 

DIY Himalayan Salt Spray: Natural Deodorant

Did you know bad odour is predominantly caused by bacteria and germs? Himalayan salt is naturally antibacterial, which means it can help to absorb and neutralize the smelly odour that occurs when bacteria mixes with our body sweat.

To make your own natural deodorant using Himalayan salt, you’ll need:

  • 80 mls warm distilled water
  • 2 teaspoons fine Himalayan salt
  • 30 mls witch hazel
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 drops lemon oil, citrus bliss oil or lavender oil

Mix the warm water and Himalayan salt together in a spray bottle and wait for the mixture to cool. Add remainder of ingredients and shake well to combine. Spray the deodorant daily as required.

DIY Himalayan Salt Spray: Texturising Hair Spray

Salt sprays are perfect for hair styling due to their ability to add texture and volume. If you want to create beachy, wavy or tousled hair, this natural salt spray might be the perfect recipe for you!

To make your own Himalayan salt texturising hair spray, fill a spray bottle with:

Simply shake the spray before each use and spritz onto damp hair. Use your hands to scrunch the mixture into your hair after spraying, and allow it to dry naturally for a tousled and textured look.
