The article is really interesting - I wonder... have you tried this recipe on your own? Maybe you can lighten us regarding the final costs for let's say 3.4 oz bottle of perfume.

Thank you.

To kids clothing and extreme perfumes, thanks for your comments.
I have tried all these recipes and mind you that the ingredients that were mentioned here are so easy to spot in your local shopping malls. Just head over to a shop that sells scented candles, essential oils...
Jojoba oil is a little expensive since it cost $16-$17 per 16oz while the rest of the essential oils that were needed here cost somewhere around $7-$8 per 10ml.
So for your question regarding the final cost for a 3.4 oz homemade perfume, it will only cost you NOT MORE than $2. It could even cost you as little as 70cents :)
