DIY essential oil perfume and cologne spray

Photo by Kathleen Quandt

In a previous blog post I showed you how to make roll-on essential oil perfumes and colognes with a carrier oil. In this blog post, I will show you how to make the same essential oil perfumes and colognes in a small spray bottle using distilled water and witch hazel. I have measured this recipe for 10 ml glass spray bottles using 2 parts distilled water and 1 part witch hazel. The same formula can be used to make larger bottles of perfume or cologne.

Making your own perfume or cologne can be quick and easy! Try mixing different essential oils to suit your mood or occasion. I used a combination of vanilla, jasmine and lavender essential oils that I found on Pinterest.


You Will Need:

  • your choice of essential oils
  • a mini plastic funnel
  • measuring spoons
  • 2 1/2 tsp. distilled water
  • 1 1/4 tsp. witch hazel
  • labels
  • 10ml glass spray bottles

Instructions:

  1. Using the measuring spoons and small funnel, fill the spray bottle with 2 1/2 tsp. distilled water and 1 1/4 tsp. witch hazel.

2. Next, add your choice of essential oils, replace the spray cap, and shake well.


3. Label your spray bottle and your finished! If your label doesn’t stay on the spray bottle, try covering the label with tape.

How to scent candles with essential oils

IMG_1611

 

Candles not only give off a warm glow, but they can add fragrance to any room. Put those boring unscented candles to good use by adding essential oils.  Scenting an unscented candle can be quick and easy.

As a safety precaution, do not add oils to the candle while the candle is burning.

Step 1: 

Light the candle and allow it to burn until there is a pool of melted wax in the candle.

Step 2:

Blow out the candle and wait for the wick to stop smoking.

Step 3:

Add several drops of your favorite essential oil or a combination of essential oils.

Step 4:

Allow wax to cool.

The next time you light your candle, it will fill the room with beautiful fragrance! This process may need to be repeated as the scent diminishes.
