Elevate the Scentses


Throughout history, perfumery has been used for and associated with many things. Essential oils have been a part of perfumery since early 2000 BC, when they were used by the ancient Egyptians. They used them as a status symbol for superiority, used by aristocrats, politicians, athletes, and royalty. Oils were also specifically sought after for their health benefits. These powerful aromatic fragrances played a major part in ritual, beauty, and commerce, just as they do today. Here is a simple guide to creating and customising your own toxin-free essential oil fragrance.

Blending How To

When you are ready to create your own essential oil perfume blend remember, the middle is the heart but the base ties it all together. So, choose your favourites from the base and middle oils first, and then “top” it off. For example, let’s say you want a blend that is both woody and masculine but is versatile enough to be light and feminine. You would want to choose oils from the base and middle note sections that have deep, rich aromas but are still fresh and clean like Cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Juniper Berry. Next you will want to choose one or more oils from the top note section that are consistent with the theme but also give the blend that extra kick, like Siberian Fir and Grapefruit. Now, you want to blend them. Add 4 drops Cedarwood, 5 drops Sandalwood, 4 drops Juniper Berry, 5 drops Grapefruit, and 2 drops Siberian Fir to your bottle (we liked the 10 mL amber bottle for this blend). Once you have the oils in the bottle, cap and shake to combine. Make sure the blend is what you were going for, then top off with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Storage Tip:
To be sure that your unique essential oil perfume lasts, store in a cool dry place in a dark glass container.
