FUN-diy perfume

so, here you are, reading my blog cos you have nothing better to do.. right? wrong. here is a tutorial on how to make your own perfect perfume. do you like the smell of ginger and cinnamon? so put them together for a feisty scent.. whichever herbs you choose to use, it will be a great way to spend your time!

what you will need:

  • herbs that smell nice- whichever herbs you want your perfume to smell like go in!
  • carrier oil (if you dont know what this is, search it up, or visit http://www.aromaweb.com/articles/whatcarr.asp )
  • a glass jar- you will need one for each herb you are using
  • sticky labels
  • a large pot
  • an empty perfume bottle (get very cheap prices from ampulla.co.uk )

instructions:

  1.  put the herbs you have chosen in the jars. only put one herb in each jar
  2. submerge the herbs completely in the carrier oil you have chosen.
  3. close the lids of the jars and place the jars in boiling water (covered by water, standing in the pan) for 10 minutes.
  4. store the jars in a dark and cool place for 3 weeks
  5. decide on how you are going to combine the different scents.
  6. place a cloth or some kirchen paper over your perfume bottles and carefully pour the desired scents into the bottle to filter the herbs out of the mixture.
  7. label your bottles so that you know which bottle carries which scent.
