Here’s a simple way to make homemade perfume with only two ingredients. These all-natural perfumes are great for people (like me) who don’t like the strong scents of store-bought perfumes. They’re also a big hit with women who like all-natural beauty products.
I got inspired by my good friend over at mbrace life to make all-natural perfumes with my four-year-old and 2-year-old. My daughters were so excited about the idea and my husband was thrilled that they wouldn’t stink like they do after playing with my perfume.
I think this would be such a fun activity for a girl’s birthday party. I’d also like to invite a few of my friends over to make perfume. The only thing better than crafting is crafting with friends (and wine)!
I even designed a simple label that you can print on address label paper and stick to your perfume bottles. Here’s the free printable: All Natural Perfume Label.
The grapeseed oil is a light and thin and mixes perfectly with the scents. It absorbs right into your skin and isn’t greasy at all. Our homemade perfumes smell fresh and clean, only take a few minutes to make.
Not only do these all-natural perfumes smell great and come together in a flash, they’re cheap! Department store perfumes will run you about $50/bottle, but these cute little bottles cost less than $5 each to make. Buy the ingredients in bulk and save even more!
All Natural Homemade Perfume with Essential Oils
Yields: One 10ml glass roll-on bottle of homemade perfume
- 10ml of grapeseed oil (about 2 teaspoons)
- 2-10 drops of your favorite essential oils (10 drops is a 5% dilution)
- 1, 10ml glass roll-on bottle
- Address label paper to print label, optional (I use address label paper compatible with the Avery 5160 address label template)
- Squirt grapeseed oil into your glass roll-on bottle or add slowly with a dropper.
- Add essential oils.
- Secure the roll-on top and lid.
- Turn bottle upside-down to mix the grapeseed oil and essential oils.
- Label with printable label (optional).
To use, simply roll onto your wrists or neck in place of perfume. Smell and enjoy!
Note: When I made these with my daughters we made a bit of a mess, so if you attempt to make these with little ones use a big sheet to protect the floor or, better yet, make them outside!
