Homemade Aromatherapy Perfumes
Making your own homemade aromatherapy is not only fun but also extremely satisfying as well. These aromatherapy perfumes would enhance a person’s good mood, provides some extra energy and helps you relax.

These homemade aromatherapy recipes I’m going to provide below are very much simple to make and easy to follow. Choose which perfume recipes you most likely to follow or choose a recipe where materials are readily available for you to start.

By following the simple instructions below, you will soon be making your very own homemade aromatherapy perfumes.



First, you need to have a base (To learn more about base notes, please visit the topic about the Difference between Perfume and Cologne ). It can either be an alcohol or carrier oil. For best result, a combination of alcohol and carrier oil would be great. The best alcohol to use is an odorless alcohol. That is why I prefer using Vodka and mix it with Jojoba oil which is my carrier oil. Jojoba is quite expensive since it has a long shelf life, and once applied to skin and dries out it would leave a sweet soothing scent behind. This doesn’t limit you from using jojoba oil only. You could use other less expensive oils such as almond or apricot kernel oil.

Basic Instruction in making your Homemade Aromatherapy Perfume

1. Prepare you perfume bottle container. (Preferably dark glass bottle)

2. Measure 1teaspoon of your carrier oil (Jojoba, Almond, or Apricot kernel oil) and another 1teaspoon of alcohol (Vodka). Using a funnel pour these two ingredients in your bottle.

3. Add the essential oils from your chosen recipe listed below. You may need a dropper since not all essential oil bottles comes with a dropper. Once you have finished adding the last drop of essential oil, close the lid tightly and shake well.

4. Store it in a cool dark place. You need to store your mixture for 12 days or more before you have to use it. Try to remember to shake the bottle at least every 4 days.

5. After 12 days, you can now begin to enjoy the aromatherapy that you have made.

If I were to find the materials locally, where can I purchase get these ones?

Bobby said...

To Gem: I've made a list of all the essential oils that were discussed here in this blog and was lucky to find them all at SM megamall. There are some small stalls that sells scented candles, incense and aromatherapy oils. They sell small bottles of essential oils costing P100-P250 per bottle..I'm not sure if they have it there at SM Baguio but I know there are some stalls that sell essential oils at Portavaga Session Rd.

Thanks Gem and I hope this helps :)
