Ever get tired of the fragrances out there that don't quite appeal to you?
I prefer to mix my own scented oils and perfumes. It's pretty easy and you can experiment with fragrances. I'm pretty happy with my signature scents but I tend to run out if I don't make up a good sized batch. I just received a shipment of cinnamon leaf oil, and it dawned on me that I should share this easy perfumery!
What you need:
- (3) essential oils (Base, Middle, Top)
- Carrier Oil
- Spring Water
- Tinted glass bottles (either amber or blue)
- Measuring Cup
I prefer this style Atomizer. The caps are universal to your standard amber glass bottles. If you store your left overs in a small bottle, you can just change out the cap for the Atomizer. I also use smaller bottles for my purse as shown in the photo with the ball top.

Most DIY forums have a section for aromatherapy/Perfumery, so you can share tips and recipes there too. Hands-on knowledge is the best, in my opinion. Plus, what smells good to another person may be putrid to you!
