DIY Roll-On Perfume

DIY Roll-On Perfume

When it comes to perfume, finding your perfect scent can be tricky.  Finding your perfect natural perfume can be even more complicated. We want to help make the process easy by giving you tips on how to create your own signature scent. The key things to keep in mind are having a top note, middle note, and base note. Top notes are typically light, fresh, and uplifting aromas. They are the first impression of your perfume which is why it is important to choose wisely. Middle notes are also known as the heart of the perfume. Typically, they are floral or spicy oils that blend seamlessly with the base note once the top note fades. Base notes are essential oils that are considered heavy oils meaning their aroma is evident. They work with the middle note to add depth to the scent of the perfume.

If you aren't sure what essential oils fall into each category, below is a small list of popular essential oils you can use as top, middle, and base notes:
Top notes: Basil (To Middle), Bergamot (To Middle), Cinnamon, Clary Sage (To Middle), Coriander (To Middle), Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, Hyssop, Lemon, Lemongrass (To Middle), Lime, Mandarin, Neroli (To Middle), Niaouli, Orange, Peppermint, Petitgrain, Sage, Spearmint, Tagetes, Tangerine, Tea Tree (To Middle), and Thyme (To Middle).

Great middle notes: Black Pepper, Cardamom, Chamomile, Cypress, Fennel (To Top), Geranium, Ho Wood, Hyssop, Juniper, Lavender (To Top), Marjoram, Melissa (To Top), Myrtle, Nutmeg, Palma Rosa, Pine, Rosemary, and Spikenard.
Base notes Balsam Peru, Cassia (To Middle), Cedarwood, Cinnamon (To Middle), Clove, Frankincense, Ginger (To Middle), Jasmine, Myrrh, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Rosewood (To Middle), Sandalwood, Valerian, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang (To Middle).

Here is what you will need:
10 ml roller bottle to store your perfume in
