DIY All-Natural Perfume
Perfumes are typically big culprits when it comes to undisclosed or hidden harmful ingredients; plus, many of the fragrances in popular perfumes are actually synthetic. Why wear synthetic fragrance when you can DIY a therapeutic essential oil blend that is actually good for you?
- Glass perfume bottle between 100-200 ml in size (check Amazon!)
- 30-50 drop of your preferred essential oils
- Vodka (enough to fill up your perfume jar)
- First, add your essential oils to your glass perfume jar
- Add in the vodka
- Seal perfume bottle by firmly replacing the lid/mister and let the perfume sit for a minimum of one month before using. This allows the essential oil to thoroughly infuse.
When making a DIY perfume, you’ll want to keep the base notes, middle notes and top notes in mind. When you smell the aroma of a perfume, the top note is what first reaches your senses, followed by the middle and then bottom notes.
Our favorite base, middle and top note essential oils are as follows:
- Base Note: Sandalwood or Ylang Ylang
- Middle Note: Lavender or Bergamot
- Top Note: Sweet Orange, Lemon or Lemongrass

This one is so easy, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it first. Do you have a favorite tube of lip gloss? Grab it and add one drop of peppermint essential oil directly into the tube, using the applicator to stir it in completely. Each time you use your gloss the peppermint will naturally plump your lips and you’ll get an uplifting aromatherapy experience.
