  1. 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.

  2. 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.

Ingredients for Homemade Perfume Recipes

I started using essential oils from doTerra after comparing them to the other brands in my stash.

I found myself using fewer drops per recipe and actually getting better results. Plus, I've never had a bad reaction, which sometimes happens with other brands.

doTerra's oils cost more than other brands, and that's as it should be. It's like buying a BMW vs. a Kia - the more expensive car is the better quality vehicle.

If you can afford them, I recommend giving doTerra's oils a try and comparing them for yourself.

You can buy doTerra's oils at retail prices by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get a store-wide 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on the wholesale thing - why spend more than you have to, right?

I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs for all other recipe ingredients and if you're on a tight budget. I love their friendly, helpful staff, their prices and the quality of their products - most of them are organic without a huge jump in cost. Here's some quick links to the ingredients you'll need for these homemade perfume recipes...

Or... If you love having tons of options to choose from, browse through Amazon and see what looks good to you. Just remember that inexpensive oils are likely to be lower in quality - how else do they get the cost so low?
