Homemade Perfumes

Creating your own homemade personal perfume is easy.

Homemade Perfume Ideas - Cinnamon sticks are an old, old favorite. If simmering some cinnamon in water doesn't take you back to some pleasant memories it will at least provide some new ones. Invest in a home coffee grinder -- that is a smell-generator that is, to some people, worth more than the investment.

Easy and Basic Perfume Recipes

This is one of the simplest recipes for perfume making you can do at home. Take 2 cup of water and 1 cup fresh chopped flower blossoms. In a bowl place a cheesecloth where the edges are hanging over the bowl. Fill with 1 cup of flower blossoms of your choice. Pour water over the flowers until they are completely covered. Cover and let sit overnight. The next day using the edges of cheesecloth pull it out of the bowl and gently squeeze the scented water into a small pot. Simmer the water until about 1 teaspoon is left. Cool and place into a small bottle. Making perfume this way has a shelf life of about 1 month.

Homemade Perfumes, Scents and Colognes

Spray bottles, which will not come into contact with the skin, are the best choice for applying perfume. Direct skin contact may cause dead skin cells to slough off and be deposited in the bottle, which can can have effect on the perfume's scent over the long term.

Recipes in Making Home Made Perfume

2 tbsp. jojoba oil
3 drops bergamot oil
2 drops neroli oil
8 drops jasmine oil
12 drops geranium oil
8 drops ylang-ylang oil
4 drops patchouli oil

Pour the jojoba oil into a dark glass bottle with a glass rod applicator. Add the essential oils drop by drop, and shake thoroughly. You can vary the proportions of the essential oils in accordance to personal preference, but note the geranium oil is what gives this blend its floral flavor. Be careful-too much patchouli oil will easily overwhelm the scent; too much bergamot oil will often irritate skin that's sensitive.

Homemade Orient Nights Perfume

Take 4-5 drops of musk essential oil, 2 full teaspoons of jojoba oil, 4 drops of Sandalwood essential oil, 3 drops of fragrance oil or frankincense essential oil. Add all oils in the airtight bottle and allow it for settling for about 12-15 hours. One should store in a cool, dark and dry place. Keep in mind that shakes well before using it.

Lavendar Water

2 cups lavender flowers
2 pints distilled water -- boiling
2 tablespoons vodka

Put the lavender flowers into a flameproof container, pour on the boiling water, and stir well. Cover and leave to infuse for about 48 hours, stirring occasionally. Strain the liquid through a non-metallic strainer pressing the flowers against the sides to extract the maximum fragrance. Stir in the alcohol, pour into bottles, cover, and label.
