Make Your Own Perfume

Did you know that you can make homemade perfume using essential oils? It's actually easier than you might think, and really fun!

Perfume and essential oils.

Make your own perfume. Perfect to give as a gift.

Making your own perfume is both easy and fun, it is also cheaper than buying expensive perfumes in the store. In addition, you can use the oils you want and experiment with different scents to find a blend that suits you. A tip when choosing oils for your perfume is to think about having a top note, middle note and base note. These have different functions and give the perfume a depth and unity.

Top notes are the first ones you notice when you smell the perfume. They are volatile and usually fade away fairly quickly. Examples of oils that are suitable as top notes are fresh oils such as bergamot, lemon, peppermint and lavender.

The middle note is the very core of the perfume and the scent that develops after the top note. Good oils to use for this are aromatic and floral oils with a reasonably strong scent, such as ylang ylang, jasmine, geranium and neroli.

Base notes create a base for the perfume and give the scent depth. They are often stronger and more complex scents and those that stay on the skin the longest. Popular oils to use are sandalwood, vanilla, patchouli and cedar.

In addition to the essential oils, you need a neutral oil to mix with in order to dilute the strong essential oils that can otherwise irritate the skin. Tips for good oils for this are, for example, almond oil or jojoba oil - they are light in consistency and have a faint scent that does not compete with the essential oils.
