How to make your own perfume with essential oils

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

  1.  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.

  1. Fill up the bottle with water, preferably distilled. Or, if you like the scent you can use rose water.
  2. 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.

Success, Tsahallah.

  1. Hi Tsahallah,
    Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely try that. Apart from smelling lovely might serve as aromatherapy as well… 🙂
    For bottle recommendation, think Look Sharp Store might have plastic ones.
    I have another recommendation though. I came across this shop not too long ago. They have a large variety of glass and plastic bottles in various sizes with different tops as well as glass jars, etc. I think they are located in Wellington though.
    Looking forward to your posts! 🙂

    1. Hi Sibylle, thank you for your reply and recommendation. Yes, Arthur Holmes are good, they have glass bottles too. It’s also a good idea to search on Trademe, you never know what you will find there.

      Cheers! Tsahallah
