Making a DIY perfume is not only fun, and affordable it’s much better for you than the chemically laden counterparts you would buy in the store. It’s really simple to make, and you only need just a few key ingredients.
We like to use perfumers alcohol in our perfumes. You can also switch it out for a vodka. Add 1 teaspoon perfumers alcohol to your dual fitment bottle (these are the best for perfumes because there is a roller on one end, and a spray on the other. That makes it perfect for the times you want to spray and the times you want to put it on your pulse points).
To make the perfume, it is key to add the essential oils to a bottle and let them mature for several days before adding any other ingredients. I like to put the drops into my dual fitment bottle, give it a little swirl and seal it up. After a few days to a month, go back and add your perfumer’s alcohol. Top with water.
Spray on clothing and roll on pulse points. Please keep in mind that essential oils are not as powerful and don’t have the staying power that synthetic perfumes have. You will most likely need to reapply the perfume several times throughout the day.
