Homemade Perfume

Here is something I just made while my dear son was still sleeping this Sunday:

Homemade perfume.  This was super easy since we keep vodka in the house (for tinctures..I’m not a fan of vodka for drinking). If you don’t have jojoba oil, I would suggest another like Vegetable oil. I wouldn’t recommend Olive oil–the kind I keep around the house is so fragrant and flavorful it could alter the scent you wish to create!

I used whatever essential oils I had on hand. This is the mix I am trying: 6 drops Ylang Ylang, 5 drops lavender, about 20 drops ‘Meditation’ which consists of cedar, sandalwood, and patchouli oils.  Turns out, lavender is REALLY strong, so I couldn’t use more than 5 drops as it really overpowers the other scents!! I mixed this up and I am storing it in a reused baby jar in the back of the cupboard for one month. So I hope to find a pretty bottle to store it in by then and I’ll let you know how it works out! Will you try this? Even just lavender would be lovely; it lifts moods and keeps bugs like mosquitoes away pretty well. If you do try it, let me know what you think. Ciao for now, ladies!!  Men out there..this would make a thoughtful gift!! 🙂
