Our DIY natural perfume oil, spray or balm is an easy, toxin-free fragrance to use day to day. Make your own perfume and take with you in your bag or leave by the bed to touch up as needed. Combining a delicate selection of dried petals and oils, this essential oil perfume will help to uplift, soothe and delight without any nasty parfum chemicals.
Here are some of the beautiful botanicals you can add to your natural perfume to create a personalised fragrance:
- Jasmine Buds are calming, soothing and uplifting.
- Lavender Flowers are calming, like the oil.
- Rose Petals are soothing and fragrant.
- Bergamot Oil is used in aromatherapy and massage for its calming property.
- Ylang Ylang helps the body relax and has a sweet, floral scent.
- Rose Geranium relaxes the mind, may calm anxiety and has a liberating scent.
- Lavender Oil is a natural sedative, calming the mind.
- Patchouli has a spicy and woody scent.
- Sweet Orange can assist with mental relaxation in times of sadness and stress.
At Biome, we have an impressive range of high-quality essential oils from the best brands (such as Perfect Potion) to use for perfume making, aromatherapy, and remedies.
How to Make Natural Perfume Oil
Here is one of our favourite essential oil perfume recipes:
8 drops sweet orange
6 drops patchouli
4 drops lavender
4 drops rose geranium
3 drops ylang ylang
2 drops bergamot
Note: If you just want to make 1 x 15 ml perfume oil, only use approx. 8 drops of essential oils.
Method to make
- Add your carrier oil of choice and essential oils to a small glass jug with a spout.
- Stir until mixed.
- Using a funnel or steady hand, pour your essential oil perfume in to the bottles until almost full. Add a few flower petals.
- Cap and shake. Leave the oils to infuse together for a few days in a warm place out of the sun and shake occasionally.
How to use
This beautiful flower perfume oil not only smells amazing, but looks so pretty with the addition of the petals.
Dab a few drops of your perfume with either the roll on or dropper method. Apply behind your ears, décolletage or the inside of your wrists.
Note: Be sure to perform a patch test of youy DIY flower perfume blend because even organic perfumes can irritate if you are sensitive to certain essential oils.
How to Make a Perfume Spray
Instead of an oil base perfume, you can use a sugar cane ethanol base such as the Perfect Potion Natural Perfume Base to make your own perfume spray with essential oils.
Pour some perfume base into a glass spray bottle, drop in your choice of essential oils, and shake. Perfume making is really that easy! If you are in Brisbane, Melbourne or the Gold Coast, be sure to visit a Biome store where our team can help you with all the ingredients to make your own perfume.
