Perfume Blend

You have to start with the perfume blend when you are doing aromatic blending. The perfume blend is where you mix the different essential oils you will be using for the project.  You can mix floral essential oils with citrusy essential oils. Make sure to not use more than 25 drops of each essential oils to avoid wasting ingredients. Moreover, you should only work in small amounts so that you can avoid wasting a large amount of essential oils when you do not like the perfume blend.

Once you have created the perfume blend you can either add it into an alcohol-and-water base or carrier oil base. You may also use it for a cologne recipe or body splash recipe. You can get a perfect aromatic blend with any of these recipes.

Recipe #1: Alcohol-and-Water Base Perfume

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ tsp Distilled Water
  • 4 ½ tsp Vodka
  • 30 drops of perfume blend

Materials:

  • 1 oz dark-colored glass containers
  • coffee filter

Step 1: Blend the ingredients together. Store the well-blended ingredients in airtight glass containers. Make sure that these containers are dark-colored.

Step 2: Let the blend sit for two weeks. Make sure to shake the container at least thrice a day . Shaking more than that is ideal since it helps mix the essential oils better.

Step 3: After two weeks, get a coffee filter and filter the mixture. Rebottle it into the containers. It should be okay to use the same bottles you have used before.

Note: The blend recipe has a heavy concentration of the essential oils. Therefore, the blend must be sparingly used. Check all the safety data first for the oils you have added into the blend. Most of all, be sure to do a skin patch test before usage.

Recipe #2: Carrier Oil Base Perfume

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp Jojoba or other carrier oils.

*Carrier oils having longer shelf lives are more highly recommended though since they are more stable.

  • 7015 drops of perfume blend

Materials:

  • 1 oz dark-colored glass containers

Step 1: Blend all of the ingredients together. After that, be sure to store them in the airtight dark-colored glass container.

Step 2: Dab one drop of the blend onto your pulse point.

Note: Like with the alcohol-and-water base perfume recipe, this blend also has a heavy concentration of oils. Thus, it is essential that you use it sparingly. If you have any new oils and blends you are using, check all the safety data beforehand. Also, do a skin patch test before usage.

Recipe #3: Body Splash

  • 2 tsp Distilled Water
