Making perfume with a single essential oil is a simple process, but it does require a few additional ingredients to enhance the scent and ensure longevity. Here’s what you’ll need.
How To Make Essential Oil Perfume
10 ml carrier oil (such as jojoba or sweet almond)
5 drops essential oil of your choice (such as lavender, rose, neroli, etc.)
Optional: a few drops of essential oil blends or fragrance oils for additional scent
Small glass bottle with a dropper, roll on, or spray top
1. Choose a single essential oil that you love and want to use as the base for your perfume.
2. In a small glass bottle, add 5 drops of the essential oil.
3. Add 10 ml (or 1 tablespoon) of carrier oil to the bottle. Carrier oils help dilute the essential oil and make it safer to apply directly to the skin.
4. If you’d like to add additional scent, you can add a few drops of complementary essential oils or fragrance oils at this point.
5. Swirl the bottle gently to mix the ingredients together.
6. Allow the perfume to steep for a few days or weeks to allow the essential oil to fully infuse into the carrier oil. The scent may intensify over time.
7. Once the perfume has reached your desired strength, you can add more essential oils or carrier oil if needed.
8. Use the dropper, roll on bottle or spray top to apply the perfume directly to your skin. Be sure to test it on a small area first to ensure that you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients.
9. Store the perfume in a cool, dark place to preserve its scent and longevity.
10. Enjoy your homemade perfume!
