How To Make Your Own Herbal Perfume At Home
Are you a lover of affordable, natural beauty products and enjoy a DIY project? This natural herbal perfume recipe is for you!
Many conventional perfumes contain chemicals that do not have to be disclosed on the label and making it yourself allows you to avoid synthetic fragrances.
Try out this recipe from wellnessmama.com and adapt the notes to your favorite ones. Have fun playing around with the different smells and personalizing the essential oils to your own taste.
Base oils and ingredients:
- Vanilla extract (1 tsp)
- Cedarwood (3 drops)
- Vetiver (4 drops)
- Ylang Ylang (3 drops)
- Sandlewood (4 drops)
- Frankincense (8 drops)
- 4 ounces of alcohol to preserve and meld scents (pure alcohol would work best)
- Rose (6 drops)
- Lavender (10 drops)
- Blue Chamomile (3 drops)
- Geranium (8 drops)
- Bergamot (5 drops)
- Wild Orange (3 drops)
- Neroli (5 drops)
- Mix all oils together in an opaque bottle to get a scent you like. Let this mixture stay in the bottle alone for a few days to let scents meld.
- Add the alcohol and cap tightly.
- Shake and put in a cool, dark place for at least a month (preferable). This is optional but helps the alcohol scent fade and the scents of the oils intensify.
Store your homemade perfume in our eco-friendly Distinct Scent bottle to help preserve the pure scents of the oils.
