Prior to making this perfume, I hadn’t worn perfume in years. They would always give me a headache, and there’s a reason for this. Most perfumes are made with toxins like petrochemicals, parabens, synthetic musks and several other sketchy ingredients.

The thing I love about the essential oil perfume is not only is it free of toxins, it’s actually good for you! Essential oils are great natural remedies, and the oils I use are extremely pure and potent.

This perfume smells great but can also be used to boost your mood, help you sleep or stop an anxious feelings in their tracks. Yeah, it’s that awesome.

The bright, citrusy scent of lemon will help boost your mood and the vanilla just makes it smell amazing. Unfortunately the essential oil company I use doesn’t make a vanilla so I bought this one.

The best part is that Scott thought this perfume/body spray smelled great. I’ve even been using it as a room spray and spraying it on our pillows before bed.

Ingredients:

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in the spray bottle and shake before use.

        Hi, I live in the UK and have been searching for a suitable 100% proof Vodka and wanted to know what you thought about “Stolichnaya 100 Proof”?

        It seems to be just Vodka and nothing else, will this do please?

    This sounds fabulous..I think I will make it a solid perfume using sweet almond oil and beeswax…
    I won’t need to use the vodka. :~))

      You can use witch hazel instead of vodka. It acts to break down the essential oil to make them more fragrant.
      I prefer the smell of witch hazel and its a nice toner for the skin as well.
      Enjoy!

    I can’t buy my favorite perfume from Fruits & Passion; Lemon Vanilla. I will try making this one in a few days when my oils arrive. The vanilla oil is hard to find.
    Have you ever stained anything by spraying over clothing?

    Hello! Can you be descriptive on what vodka to use, please? I don’t know much about alcohol. What proof did you use? Brand you said, svedka?

      I actually have no idea, any vodka should be fine. And yep, I used Svedka. It’s cheap. I wouldn’t use an expensive bottle to make this.

    Vodka, or even witch hazel, are necessary for the essential oils to mix well with the water. Doesn’t matter which kind you use

    I wonder, is there a particular science behind using the vodka? I’ll definitely try it but I’m curious

    i just made it. The smell is really awesome. Not strong. Sprayed on pillows too. Thanks for sharing! Definitely will be a kiper.

    Glass blue, brown, or any tinted glass I think may be used for two reasons. 1) glass bottles cannot “absorb” the oils. 2) tinted glass helps defray sun which ultimately eliminates the possibility off changing the oils molecular structure of the oil itself (or something like this…I know it has . To do with preserving the therapeutic capacity and the ‘pure’ quality.

    Hi I am just learning about essential oils. Thank you for answering a question I had about the color of bottles to use. I am really excited to try your recipe for the perfume. Many Thanks.
