Perfume Oil Making: Do some research on your items:

Before you start looking for materials to make perfumes, it is important to do some research on the ingredients. Some perfume oil ingredients, especially essential oils, can be very strong and irritating if used incorrectly.

It is important to follow the standard ratio of no more than 20% essential oil concentration and 80% carrier oil concentration.

It’s also important to remember that oil perfume ingredients sometimes cause photosensitivity. If you have an idea of what type of scent you want to create, be sure to research those ingredients to see if there are any side effects you should be aware of.

perfume oil making for beginners

Have you ever wondered what makes the best essential oil fragrance? Perfumes are not created by chance. There is a formula that perfumers follow to make their scents memorable, long-lasting, and pleasing to the nose.

There are three main notes in perfumes:

Top: These are the most prevalent scents and last for about 15 minutes.
Middle: This is the one that carries the fragrance and becomes more dominant for 15-45 minutes.
Base: Longer lasting tones, which can last for hours.
The notes you choose and the order in which you place them will have a direct impact on how you experience your perfume.

Choose the perfect essential oils

Once you have an idea of the type of scent you want to create, it’s time to gather all the materials you’ll need.

To prepare essential oil yourself, you will need:

Essential oils for your top, middle and base notes;
Unscented carrier oil, such as almond or jojoba oil;
Rollerball bottles (0.2 oz is ideal);
4 glass droppers or pipettes – one for carrier oil and one for each essential oil. You may need more if you use more than one essential oil for each ingredient in your perfume.

The standard recipe for fragrance oil is as follows:

20 drops essential oil blend (10 base, 5 middle, and 5 top);
80 drops of carrier oil;
Alcohol (optional);
The alcohol helps spread the scent and blend the ingredients together.

Once you add the ingredients to the roller ball bottle, close the bottle and shake gently to mix everything together.

The Process of Applying

Never forget that the way you apply perfume on your body is very important and delicate. If you are using a roller ball bottle, all you have to do is roll the perfume on your pulse points.

The best points for application are:

Behind the ears
On the collarbone
On the chest
On the tops of your arms.

Final Thoughts

Making your own essential oil is not as complicated as it seems and can be a fun project.

It’s a great way to create a scent that’s truly your own, and you can recreate it anytime you want right from home.

Make sure to use high-quality essential oils for your perfume to ensure the best scent.
