Pour grapeseed oil into bottle about 3/4th of the way full. Add 10-30 drops of essential oil. Cap, shake gently, and smell. Add more EO if desired for a stronger scent. You can use right away, although the two oils will more blended in about 2 weeks time.
To use: Shake gently and apply to neck, wrists, ankles, elbows and knees.
This is a dirt cheap and easy-peasy way to make your own perfume! All you need is grapeseed oil and essential oil. Grapeseed oil is cheap and has a neutral scent, but you can also use other cheap cold-pressed oils such as sunflower and olive oil. Other common but more costly oils that you can use are sweet almond, jojoba and apricot kernel.
To keep things simple, you can use one EO such as Jasmine, Rose Geranium, Vanilla or Lavender. You can also try using an EO blend such as from Fabulous Frannie, doTerra or another company. These are synergy blends of EOs, great if you don't know much about aromatherapy or don't have the time to experiment with layering different scents. Some of the blends have inspiring names such as Peace, Grounding, Happy and Thankful, which you can also use to name your perfume.
You can buy clear glass roll on bottles cheaply from Amazon and dollar, discount or craft stores. Other bottles you can use are clear glass bottles with cork stoppers (the ones in the picture were purchased from a dollar store) or small (cleaned) plastic bottles that housed candy sprinkles. Other options are to use amber and blue colored glass bottles with a dispenser, often used for tinctures (pictured on the left behind the nail polish bottles in the photo). Do note that glass bottles are favored over plastic as the EOs will break down the plastic over time.
Place a label on the bottle and add a ribbon or bow for a homemade gift sure to please for ANY occasion!
As always, Enjoy :)
