There are a lot of great things about spring. Fresh air, flowers blooming, birds singing, it’s all good. One of the other things I love about spring is that the lighter, airier things start making an appearance. A prime example of this is perfumes and fragrances. Yep, I’m breaking out the light, floral-y scents as we speak.
One of my favorite things to do is make my own perfumes using essential oils. I choose a few essential oils that will work together, and start playing around. A few drops of this, a couple drops of that, shake shake shake … sniff. Spring Air is an essential oil perfume blend that I really like, and I’m hoping that you will, too!
Spring Air Essential Oil Perfume Blend
It’s easier than you think to make your own essential oil blends. Links may be affiliate links.
- One rollerball jar – I’m using a cobalt glass one, as a couple of the essential oils used are photosensitive and affected by light.
- Sweet almond oil – This is a really great carrier oil. It’s light, practically fragrance free, and doesn’t go rancid quickly.
- 3-4 Drops lemongrass essential oil
- 3-4 drops Rosewood essential oil
- 6-10 drops cedarwood essential oil
- 6-10 drops Bergamot essential oil
- 6-10 drops Rose Absolute essential oil
- 6-10 drops jasmine essential oil
- Small funnel
Place rollerball bottle on a small plate, bowl, or in a juice glass. This is in case the bottle falls over and it will catch the spill. Or, you can live dangerously. 😉
Add the essential oils, one at a time. Start with the lower number of drops, shake well to combine, and then spread a little on you wrist or a piece of paper.
Adjust the essential oils for your own personal preference. Remember, though, that there will be top notes, middle notes, and bottom notes, just like any other perfume.
Place the ball in your bottle, and screw down the cap. The cap will push the rollerball into place and lock it in.
Most of all, have fun! Try different scent combinations and come up with your own essential oil perfume blends. Sometimes you hit gold on the first try, and sometimes…Well. I’m going to be honest. Sometimes the first, second, and even third essential oil combinations needs some tinkering.
