A Basic Guide to Perfume Making

Choosing Your Essential Oils

To create your own essential oil perfume, start by selecting the oils that best suit your preferences and needs. Essential oils can be categorized into three main types: top notes, middle notes, and base notes. Top notes are light and evaporate quickly, while base notes are heavier and last longer.

  • Top Notes: citrus (lemon, bergamot), minty (peppermint, eucalyptus), light floral (lavender, chamomile)
  • Middle Notes: herbal (rosemary, clary sage), spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg), floral (rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang)
  • Base Notes: earthy (sandalwood, patchouli), resinous (frankincense, myrrh), musky (vetiver, cedarwood)

Blending Ratios

When making a custom perfume, follow general blending ratios for optimum results. A common starting point is to use 30% top notes, 50% middle notes, and 20% base notes. However, feel free to adjust these ratios according to your preferences. Remember to blend and store your perfume in a dark, glass container for best results.

Diluting Your Perfume

Essential oils are potent, so you'll need to dilute them with a carrier oil before applying them to your skin. Common carrier oils include jojoba, sweet almond, and grapeseed oil. A typical dilution ratio is 10-20% essential oil to 80-90% carrier oil.
