We are now in February and Valentine’s day is approaching. Though this perfume oil can be made anytime during the year, it has a more special meaning in the month of February. So, let’s start.
1- Sweet almond oil or argan oil – You can also use jojoba oil or grapeseed oil. The important thing is that the oil shouldn’t have a strong smell, as we don’t want it to overpower the scent of the essential oils or fragrance we use in our product. The best option really is the sweet almond oil because it is odorless.
2- Glycerin – We will use it as perfume fixative
3- Oil color powder – It is dissoluble in oils
4- Essential oils like lavender oil, rose oil, cumin oil, gardenia oil, jasmine oil, etc.
5- Small glass bottle with a roll-on top, preferably 12 millimeters
6- Gold glitter – Optional
- 13 grams of sweet almond oil (0.45 oz)
- Half a gram of Glycerin (0.017 oz)
Steps: How To Make A Perfume Oil
1- Add 13 grams of sweet almond oil in a small measuring cup
2- Add a mix of three essential oils that you like: for example, six drops of jasmine oil, six drops of gardenia oil, etc
3- Mix thoroughly for 2 mins
4- Add half a gram of glycerin and mix again
5- Grab a toothpick and add just a bit of oil color powder to the mixture. Mix really well and adjust the color to your liking. Adding a small amount at first will allow you to have more control of the color
6- (Optional) Mix in a small amount of glitter to give it that shine
7- Put it in a small bottle and you’re done!
Why did we add three essential oils for the fragrance? Just to have it unique, that special scent that will not be easily found in the market.
