This DIY Moisturizing Shampoo That’ll Save You So Much Money will change the way you look at using costly toxic, chemical-filled shampoo going forward. I’m obsessed with OGX Tea Tree and Mint Shampoo and wanted to make my own and came up with the below concoction.

WHERE TO BUY ESSENTIAL OILS
I only use Young Living essential oils because the quality and their method of distilling produce the best essential oils available on the market today. In fact, Young Living has a Seed to Seal guarantee that surpasses any other oil company’s guarantee of the quality and purity of their oils. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’d rather pay a little more guaranteed quality oils than paying a little less for cheap oils that may or may not provide the same benefit.
Also, Do Not Buy Young Living Essential Oils from Amazon, Ebay or other third-party sites.
The reason I only buy oils directly from Young Living is the same reason I wouldn’t buy a designer handbag from the back of a van on a street corner. It’s probably not the real thing or has been tampered with in some way. You wouldn’t want to apply or ingest an “oil” that someone put something strange in or receive a bottle of “water” instead of oil (trust me, this happens all the time!). Please don’t be the one that gets scammed by buying essential oils anywhere other than Young Living!
Now that that’s out of the way, here are few more facts & benefits that Young Living offers:
- YL offers many membership benefits, including monthly essential oils, rewards programs to earn FREE product
- Young Living is also the only essential oil company that is approved by the FDA with a special line of Vitality oils and products
- YL has 22+ years of experience and is the only oil company that owns their own farms

DIY Moisturizing Shampoo That’ll Save You So Much Money
I’m sharing this recipe because I believe everyone should try using essential oils. I used to be one of those people that thought essential oils were a joke (I thought they were used to make things smell good and that’s about it). I didn’t know they support health and wellness or would change the way I use many pre-made products going forward.
WHAT CHANGED MY PERSPECTIVE ABOUT ESSENTIAL OILS
My friend and Young Living essential oils rep, Devin, introduced me to essential oils in the Spring of 2016. I purchased an essential oils starter kit, even though I was still a non-believer of the benefits, but I was curious if all the good things everyone says about them was true.
One month after investing in my first essential oils starter kit, my littles got the dreaded 24-hour stomach bug.
My son started vomiting in the middle of the night and I emailed Devin (she is in a different time zone than me so she was still awake, thank goodness). She suggested diffusing certain oils and a rollerball combination to rub on his belly and bottom of his feet. I used the methods she suggested (and only those methods) and sure enough, my son stopped vomiting 4 hours later. He woke up the next morning energetic as nothing happened!
But I was still skeptical…I know, I know. I still wondered if it was just a fluke. Then my daughter got sick a week later (while we were on vacation!) but I was smart enough to bring my oils with me (using this handy little travel bag). I used the same methods I did for my son and sure enough, 4 hours after the vomiting started, she was better.
I. WAS. AMAZED.
Another way that I found essential oils to have amazing support was by using essential oils to keep the bugs away. My daughter is a magnet for mosquitos (she’s always had this problem since birth) mosquitoes just love to bite her so much and she always had a slight reaction to mosquito bites. Her skin would swell up and it would take days for the swelling to go down.
In the past, we tried many different chemical bug sprays and the only chemical spray that worked on her was OFF! Deep Woods – which I hated using because it had 25% DEET (can you believe they make a spray with 40% DEET???). I cringed having to spray her with that stuff, loaded with harmful chemicals. If you aren’t familiar with products with DEET, just to give you an idea of the harmful chemicals, the bug spray we used on our daughter has warnings that its contents are “HAZARDOUS TO HUMANS” and you must “wash clothing before wearing again” if sprayed on/near clothes.
The essential oils spray that we used all summer long provided another validation that using essential oils are really beneficial. I used handmade, all-natural essential oil bug spray on my daughter all summer long and she did not have ONE bug bite. We traveled to lots of places heavy with mosquitos too (Rotan Honduras, Mexico, and Florida)! It was another amazing AH-HA moment.
So this is what all these essential oil users were talking about!
I use essential oils for many preventive measures, including dietary, aromatic, supporting a healthy immune function, creating a soothing and relaxing atmosphere, and improving appearance for healthy-looking skin. I also use it for all of my cleaning products (be sure to check out this Chemical-Free Car Wash Kit and this post with 15 Cleaning Products You Don’t Need (and what to use instead).
Homemade Tea Tree and Mint Natural Moisturizing Shampoo Using Essential Oils
This homemade Tea Tree and Mint Moisturizing shampoo is quick and easy to make (even if you are just starting to use essential oils and want to make your own natural products). I made mine using an 8 oz. amber squeeze bottle but you can also use a glass jar with a pump. I’ve always been told to avoid using plastic containers for essential oil products but I’ve tried these amber bottles that work well for us.
The printable labels can be printed on any color cardstock. I used pink and teal cardstock as shown below. The printable labels with fun hashtags are included in my eBook, 50 All-Natural Skin Care Solutions Using Essential Oils. #SHINE on the labels!
