So I have read many recipes for DIY Perfume after running out of my stock of commercially manufactured favorites, most of which I don't find terribly reliable or effective. I'm also getting away from chemical based items as much as possible. So out of pure intrigue and trial I started mixing my own Essential Oils w/Jojoba Oil in a roller bottle and....AMAZING.
1 oz Roller Bottle, glass
5 drops of Natures Oil Lavender
5 drops of Natures Oil "Purification Blend"
2 Drops of Natures Oil Lime
Fill remainder of bottle w/Carrier Oil (I use Jojoba Oil)
Rub on wrists, along collarbone, and dab behind ears.
A few people I talked to didn't think that blend would be good, but it is pleasantly refreshing and calming.
Jojoba Oil is a mild moisturizing oil, Lime for a bit of a pick-me-up, Purification for anti-microbial and invigorating, and Lavender (as much as this seems to go against the other 2) I use to help calm my anxiety. The mix works well, isn't over-powering, and is an inexpensive and natural alternative to commercially manufactured perfume.
