DIY Hairspray

I was up and out early this morning — my doggie is not well. She came scampering in my bedroom this morning, not using her back legs. Then she wouldn’t let my husband touch her back legs. Almost as if she’d been hit by a car. We know that’s not the case — she doesn’t go outside without us. Khalid walked the house and nothing was out of place. She didn’t get into any trash or anything that could harm her.

So off to the Pet E.R. we went! Everything so far has come back normal — neurological tests, physical exam, blood work… The only thing abnormal so far is her BP, it’s a little high. They are keeping her to observe her for the day to see if they can figure out what is going on with her. She is all jumpy and wobbly. We don’t have a clue what’s going on with her…

Let’s hope the vet can figure it out and it’s easily fixable and no further cost!

Rather than dwell on my Ebonie and what’s going on with her, I decided to make myself a nourishing hairspray. It cost me all of $1.80 for the gallon of distilled water. I already have all the essential oils I needed for it. I did a little research on essential oils to use. I wanted something moisturizing and stress relieving at the same time.

Here is the list I came up with. I added 4 drops of each to 16 ounces of distilled water. Shook it up, and gave my hair a thorough spritzing. I’m LOVING the aroma and so is Khalid! That list of essential oils:

Clary Sage
Lavender
Geranium
Rosemary
Peppermint

I absolutely LOVE the way my hair smells! And the properties of each of the essential oils I chose have to do with hydrating and strengthening my hair along with stress relief and relaxation benefits via aromatherapy.

It turns out that Ebonie is going to be fine! (I started writing this post yesterday and never finished, and we picked her up last night.) The vet still doesn’t know what was wrong, but we all agree it looks like she got a hold of something toxic to her. She’s much better, walking normally, no longer rocking or jumpy… She is still a little wobbly and she doesn’t follow dad around the house, but I think that’s because she’s still unsteady on her feet. I am grateful that we were able to get her to the vet to get seen and that her health is returning.

We’re going to keep a close eye on her and make sure she keeps getting better…
