Here is a recipe for DIY perfume.
10ml roller ball bottle
9ml carrier oil of your choice (see below)
Fresh flowers optional but they do look pretty if your jar or bottle is clear
The carrie oil is used to suspend and deliver essential oils. They are the base that you add essential oils into so that they are properly diluted before applying to your skin. Good choices for carrier oils are thin oils without a strong fragrance. Choose fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, or jojoba oil to make aromatherapy perfume. Fill your little bottle up with your carrier oil and add the essential oils, let it sit for a few hours to really blend.
