If you are very familiar with essential oils in aromatherapy or cosmetics, here is an opportunity to learn a new way of using them, even more sensory! Not only will you avoid the chemicals of ordinary perfumes, but you will also take pride in having created your own perfume. How cool is that? A unique fragrance, which looks like you, and which is perfectly adapted to the situation for which you wear it, because it was created for it!
The manufacturing process is quite simple. All you have to do is mix essential oils with different scents, trying to respect the three classic notes present in a perfume:
Once you have chosen your three notes, make your blend in an empty amber bottle, then let it sit for about 3 weeks. You can smell the bottle regularly to adjust the fragrance and add this or that essential oil, depending on the result you want to achieve.
After these 3 weeks of patience, you can dilute the essential oil blend in a base. If some use alcohol, at The company of the senses, we prefer to stay natural and opt for Jojoba vegetable oil as a perfume base. It is the one that is often chosen, and not another vegetable oil, because its composition makes it an oil that remainsintact for a long time, and its smell is quite neutral. It will allow the scented molecules to bind more easily to your skin, to prolong their scent. Also, using a vegetable oil as a base for a perfume has the advantage of not drying out the skin, as alcohol might. Thus, the perfume you create will have a significant advantage: in addition to smelling good, your skin will be nourished and protected from aggression!
To avoid irritation and an overpowering scent, you'll need to dilute the essential oil blend in the Jojoba oil. Thus, you can add one dose of essential oils for every 6 to 8 doses of Jojoba oil, depending on the intensity of the fragrance you want to have. For example, if you want to make 10 ml of perfume, you can thus make 1 ml of essential oil mixture (that is 30 drops) to be diluted in 9 ml of Jojoba oil. And there you go, your natural and personalized perfume is ready!
To create your own atmosphere to diffuse, the manufacturing process is the same, you just have to add the essential oils you like (respecting the precautions of diffusion, that is to say those that you can diffuse pure and those that you have to dilute).
It should be noted that you should never add vegetable oil in the mixtures of atmosphere to diffuse. These oils are greasy and viscous, they can damage your diffuser. It is thus simple and to create its own diffusion, which will be natural and single, since it will resemble only you!
Creating your own indoor atmosphere with essential oils is a simple process, which is similar to the process of making a natural perfume with essential oils. Indeed, to create its own atmosphere to be diffused is to conceive its "perfume" of interior. Thus, it is necessary to mix essential oils with different scents, trying to respect the three classical notes present in a perfume:
Examples: citrus, green and fresh smells: Tea Tree, Basil, Lemon etc.
Examples: woody, fruity and spicy notes: Roman Chamomile, Palmarosa, Cinnamon etc.
Examples: woody, sweet and leathery notes: Atlas Cedar, Cistus, Patchouli etc.
Once you have chosen the essential oils according to their note (top note etc.), all you have to do is make your blend according to the oils you like. It's all a matter of taste, it allows you to create a unique atmosphere that suits you.
To make sure you create a blend you like, simply choose the essential oils you like the smell of and test, based on their potency and your expectations, if the smell of the blend satisfies you. If you are not entirely satisfied, you can modify the blend by adding a few drops of one of the essential oils, according to your taste.
It is important to remember that before any creation of the olfactory diffusion, it is necessary to be sure that the chosen essential oils can be diffused, pure or diluted. Moreover, contrary to the creation of a classic perfume, you should not add vegetable oil because they are viscous and can damage your diffuser!
