How To Make Natural Perfume Oil

Our DIY natural perfume oil, perfume spray or perfume balm are an easy, toxin-free fragrance to use day to day. Make your own perfume at home and take with you in your bag, or leave by the bed to touch up as needed.

Combining a delicate selection of dried petals and oils, this essential oil perfume will help to uplift, soothe and delight without any nasty parfum chemicals.

DIY natural perfume recipe

Here are some of the beautiful botanicals you can add to your natural perfume to create a personalised fragrance:

  • Jasmine Buds are calming, soothing and uplifting.
  • Lavender Flowers are calming, like the oil.
  • Rose Petals are soothing and fragrant.
  • Bergamot Oil is used in aromatherapy and massage for its calming property.
  • Ylang Ylang helps the body relax and has a sweet, floral scent.
  • Rose Geranium relaxes the mind, may calm anxiety and has a liberating scent.
  • Lavender Oil is a natural sedative, calming the mind.
  • Patchouli has a spicy and woody scent.
  • Sweet Orange can assist with mental relaxation in times of sadness and stress.

At Biome, we have an impressive range of high-quality essential oils from the best brands (such as Perfect Potion) to use for perfume making, aromatherapy, and remedies.

    Method to make

    1. Add your carrier oil of choice and essential oils to a small glass roll on or dropper bottle. 
    2. Add in a few flower petals.
    3. Cap and shake. Leave the oils to infuse together for a few days in a warm place out of the sun and shake occasionally.

    How to use

    This beautiful flower perfume oil not only smells amazing, but looks so pretty with the addition of the petals.

    Dab a few drops of your home made perfume oil with either the roll on or dropper method. Apply behind your ears, décolletage or the inside of your wrists.

    Note: Be sure to perform a patch test of youy DIY flower perfume blend because even organic perfumes can irritate if you are sensitive to certain essential oils.


    How to Make Perfume Spray

    Instead of an oil base perfume, you can use a sugar cane ethanol base such as the Perfect Potion Natural Perfume Base to make your own perfume spray with essential oils.
