How to make your own perfume or body mist with essential oils
Today I’ll show you just how simple it is to make your own perfume with essential oils.
I wouldn’t give it as a gift because it contains water and water can go rancid but for personal use it’s great as long as you use it for a month after making it. If you use it daily it will be gone before the month is over.
So, all you’ll need is
- Find a small mist bottle, preferably a glass one. Maybe from a used perfume. I think plastic bottle will be ok, since the perfume is diluted in water. These one’s you can get in the $2 shops in Auckland and I guess in other places too. By the way, would love to hear your recommendations for a $2 shop in Whangarei. Did not find a good one yet.
OK, this was probably the hardest part but if you have the bottle, from here it’s easy peazy.
- Fill up the bottle with water, preferably distilled. Or, if you like the scent you can use rose water.
- Add some drops of essential oils. Here, you can mix as you like. Add just a few drops to make a mist, add some more for a perfume.
That is it, you have your own perfume ready. It’s all natural and it’s just the way you like it.
