- Young Living Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
- Young Living Grapefruit Essential Oil
- Witch Hazel
How To Make Perfume With Essential Oils:
Now there are many Young Living Essential Oils to choose from so you can really combine any of your favorite oils together but I happen to love grapefruit and ylang ylang together! I think that combo is very summery since it combines citrus and floral essential oils! Grab your supplies and head to the counter. Open up your roller bottle and add 15-20 drops of your Ylang Ylang essential oil and 15-20 drops of your Grapefruit essential oil. *YL oils are very concentrated. The amount of oil you add just depends on how strong you would like your scent to be when rolled on. I like my fragrance to be on the stringer side so I will usually add 18-20 drops of each oil.
Once you have added your essential oils, top off your bottle with witch hazel. I like to use with hazel when making fragrances in the summer instead of liquid coconut oil or almond oil so that my skin won’t be oily after applying. In the winter the liquid coconut oil feels good on my dry skin but I like the lightness and quick absorption of witch hazel in the hotter months. Once your bottle is filled up, pop the roller top on. Give a quick shake and your fragrance is ready to be rolled on. You will love this floral and citrus summer fragrance.
**Note that Citrus Oils are photosensitive so make sure to not roll this fragrance on large amounts of skin and then go immediately and sit out in the sun.
