7 Homemade Perfumes That Are Completely Natural and Smell Amazing ...

COMMENT

I love making homemade perfumes for various reasons, but the most important one has to be for health.

Almost every store-bought perfume, cologne, or body mist has some kind of carcinogen, toxin or chemical that shouldn’t be inhaled.

Not to mention, spraying it on your body will have it seeping into the largest organ of your body – the skin.

That’s why it’s so important to protect our skin and preserve our health with these homemade perfumes.

I will note that perfume making at home is a lengthy process if you want a strong scent.

Go for the body mist recipes if you are looking for a quick and easy way to smell amazing with ease.2

1. Woodland Perfume

Woodland Perfume

Mountainroseblog.com has so many great homemade perfumes!

Where this recipe is found, there are two other recipes available and even three cologne recipes.

I chose the woodland perfume because I love the smell of pine trees and the great outdoors.

If you aren’t really the outdoorsy type, be sure to check out the other great recipes on the mountain rose blog for other great options.

There is an orange cologne recipe on there that smells so great that it honestly shouldn’t be meant for just men.

Ingredients:

4 drops Spruce essential oil

2 drops organic Fir Needle essential oil

2 drops organic Cedarwood essential oil

1 drop organic Vetiver essential oil

1 drop organic Bergamot essential oil

1 tsp organic Jojoba Oil

Directions:

Drip all essential oils into a glass bottle and roll between palms to evenly mix the oils.2

Add Jojoba oil, and roll again.

Add additional essential oils if you desire a stronger perfume.

2. Cucumber Aloe Body Mist

Cucumber Aloe Body Mist

The pronounceable ingredients list of this body mist is so great – certainly not what you would find at a store!

The cucumber, aloe, and lemon combination is so refreshing and uplifting that it feel like your mood is boosted for the entire day.

Also, because perfume will make some contact with your skin, the rosewater can actually soften your skin and the aloe can help soothe it as well.

The only downside to this recipe is that it has to be stored in the refrigerator, and that it lasts only a week.

Plan accordingly by only making a half recipe if you need to.

Ingredients:

1 cucumber

1 squeeze of lemon

1 teaspoon aloe vera gel

1 tablespoon rosewater (you can buy at a health food store)2

Directions:

Peel your cucumber and cut it up into little pieces.

Place the pieces in a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute.

Cover a small bowl with a cheese cloth and strain the juice into the bowl.

I didn’t have a cheese cloth, so I used a napkin and squeezed the juice through using a tight grip.

Add the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mix.

I actually put everything back in the blender just to make sure the aloe was thoroughly mixed.

Transfer your mixture into a spray bottle and mist away!

You can add some distilled water if you want to dilute the mixture a bit.2

Store this in your fridge so that it doesn’t spoil.

It should last about a week.
