- Use a funnel to pour the oil and alcohol into a 2oz (50ml) dark glass or PET plastic bottle.
Drop in the essential oil perfume blends.
- Cap the bottle and shake it to mix everything together.
Keep it in a cool, dark place for two weeks to let the homemade perfume 'cure'.
Shake the mixture several times a day.
A friendly reminder: More and more people are becoming sensitive to perfumes - even natural ones.
(For example, my mother gets migraines when she's exposed to any perfume.)
Please be sensitive to their needs and don't wear your essential oils perfume when you think it might cause anyone discomfort.
