DIY: How To Make Your Own Custom Perfume

Did you know that most perfumes and colognes are manufactured using synthetic chemicals, even petroleum? Many of these ingredients do not need to be listed on the labels, but are known allergens, hormone disruptors, and irritants. this is some scary and dangerous stuff, which is why we switched to all natural fragrances like Tallulah Jane years ago. Making your own custom scent is frankly couture, like with having a unique name, nobody will ever forget you. We are so grateful to Mountain Rose Herbs which provided these recipes, it’s the place to buy all your essential oils online in their purest form. The majority of perfumes have never even been studied for cosmetic use! This is pretty scary, but the good news is that we can easily create our own perfumes and colognes from natural ingredients. Not only are they safer, but many botanicals also have therapeutic properties that are grounding, energizing, relaxing, stimulating, uplifting, and balancing. True, these fragrances will need to be reapplied more often than their chemical counterparts, but they are much better for our minds and bodies. If in need of a little sprucing up during the day, carry a small bottle of your favorite aroma in your purse. You can even make special formulas like a relaxing blend for stressful situations or something energizing for afternoons that drag. The options are endless. Don’t forget though, that when it comes to storage you are not supposed to store perfume in the bathroom.

DIY: How To Make Your Own Custom Perfume

Spice Cologne

A warming, spicy, and exotic blend that will lift spirits, invigorate senses, alleviate stress, mental fatigue, and tension. The aroma is delightfully reminiscent of Chai tea.

  • 1 organic Cinnamon Stick
  • 25 organic whole Cardamom Pods
  • 15 organic Cloves
  • 1 organic Vanilla Bean – cut into small pieces
  • 1 fresh organic Orange peel – zest only
  • 8 oz Vodka

Crush spices in a mortar and pestle. Combine with Vanilla Bean pieces, Orange peel zest, and vodka in a glass mason jar. Cap tightly and shake once or more per day. After 2-6 weeks, strain the spices and pour the infused liquid into a glass bottle with a mister top. Simply add more spices if you desire a stronger cologne.

Citrus Cologne

A fresh citrus scent with herbal notes, this uplifting aroma is stimulating and revitalizing.

  • 1 fresh organic Lemon peel – zest only
  • 1 fresh organic Grapefruit peel – zest only
  • Organic essential oil of choice, examples: Basil, Chamomile, Lavender, or Peppermint
  • 8 oz Vodka

Combine Lemon and Grapefruit peel zest in a glass mason jar and add vodka until the liquid rises above the peel zest by at least 1”. Cap tightly and shake once or more per day. After 2-6 weeks, strain out the citrus peels and pour the resulting cologne into a glass bottle with a mister top. Add 2 drops of essential oil for each tablespoon of finished cologne. Add more essential oil if you desire a stronger cologne.

Fresh Floral Cologne

This relaxing cologne can be made with fresh blossoms straight from the garden! The flowers help ease depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia, hyperactivity, irritability, tension, and exhaustion.

  • Fresh or dried organic Rose Petals
  • Fresh or dried organic Chamomile flowers
  • Fresh or dried organic Lavender flowers
  • Vodka

Combine all ingredients in a glass mason jar and add vodka until the liquid rises above the flowers by at least 1”. Cap tightly and shake once or more per day. After 2-6 weeks, strain the flowers and pour the resulting cologne into a glass bottle with a mister top.

Woodland Perfume

I love this blend! It truly smells like the forest. Uplifting, grounding, meditative, and comforting.

  • 4 drops Spruce essential oil
  • 2 drops organic Fir Needle essential oil
  • 2 drops organic Cedarwood essential oil
  • 1 drop organic Vetiver essential oil
  • 1 drop organic Bergamot essential oil
  • 1 tsp organic Jojoba Oil

Drip all essential oils into a glass bottle and roll between palms to evenly mix the oils. Add Jojoba oil, and roll again. Add additional essential oils if you desire a stronger perfume.

Sweet Summer Perfume

A relaxing and warming blend reminiscent of summer, with a lightly floral aroma complemented by hints of spice and cedar. Especially useful during times of stress, anxiety, irritability, or depression. A great lift-me-up during the cold and dark winter months!

  • 10 drops organic Lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops organic Chamomile essential oil
  • 4 drops organic Cardamom essential oil
  • 1 drop organic Cedarwood essential oil
  • 1 drop organic Geranium (Rose) essential oil
  • 1 tsp organic Jojoba Oil

Drip all essential oils into a glass bottle, and roll between palms to evenly mix the oils. Add Jojoba oil and roll again. Add additional essential oils if you desire a stronger perfume.

Refreshing Perfume

Rejuvenating, uplifting, energizing, and stimulating. This blend is good for mental clarity, lack of focus, and fatigue.

  • 13 drops organic Peppermint essential oil
  • 13 drops organic Rosemary essential oil
  • 5 drops organic Lemon essential oil
  • 5 drops organic Sage essential oil
  • 5 drops organic Juniper Berry essential oil
  • 1 tsp organic Jojoba Oil

Drip all essential oils into a glass bottle and roll between palms to evenly mix the oils. Add Jojoba oil and roll again. Add additional essential oils if you desire a stronger perfume.

    This is great! I love making my own things :) But I was wondering, how much are essential herbs usually? i’ve never gotten them before. And where can I get them? Thank you!

  3. chloejo says:

    Mountain Rose essential oils are cheaper than the ones in the health food store, and any others are questionable (ie potentially as unnatural as commercial perfumes) the oils range in price dramatically depending on how hard to harvest and find the plant is.. some are a few bucks and some go up to a few hundred bucks! Average is $10 from what I’ve used.
