DIY perfume oil combinations are a classic and simple way to enhance your beauty routine. This blend has an understated warmth to it that is unexpected, pretty and evocative of comfort and joy.
You will need:
A small glass vial with a roller ball tip
Carrier oil: 10 ml jojoba oil (or perhaps 7 ml if it is a smaller vial)
Base note: 7 drops vanilla essential oil
Middle note: 5 drops cherry essential oil
Top note: 2 drops chamomile essential oil
When combining scents for a perfume blend, it is important to consider the evaporation points of each of the essential oils, so that you can choose your base, middle and top notes. The base note will linger the longest on your skin.
Combine these ingredients together in the glass vial, cap it with the roller ball and, voilà, you have a very special custom perfume oil to keep for yourself or to give away as a gift. Enjoy!
