Essential Cologne

These cologne recipes have been tried and tested by both men and women and have all been unanimously given two thumbs up. Feel free to switch up the oils to make your own personal blend.

These cologne recipes are approximately 20 percent oil and 80 percent carrier oil based. If you want a stronger scent, you can make it a 30:70 ratio. The cologne recipes below are for a 10 mL bottle.

10 drops Clove oil
20 drops White Fir oil
40 drops Bergamot oil
5 drops Lemon oil
doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil

Tip: A dropper may be helpful in order for you to get the exact amount.

  3. Attach roll-on cap and shake until combined.
  4. Let mixture sit for 24 hours before use.
