DIY perfume with essential oils

What do you need: 2 tablespoon carrier oil like jojoba or anything of your preference and then use 6 tablespoons of vodka, 2.5 tablespoon of bottled water, and 30 drops of essential oil ( 15 for middle notes, 9 for top notes, and 6 for base notes), small filter, coffee filter and lastly 2 clean and dark glass jars or bottles with airtight lids.

Steps to make your own perfume: pour your choice of essential oil into one of the glass bottles. Add base, top then middle top notes, after adding notes pour alcohol, secure the lid and let that perfume settle for straight 48 hours without any disturbance. Once it gets settled and you get satisfied with the strength of the scent, add water then shake it well for a straight 1 minute. Use the filters you kept aside and funnel in order to transfer the scent to the other bottle.

DIY Perfume with flowers

What you need: Take 1 or ½ cups of the chopped flower of your preference, a medium-sized bowl with an airtight lid, 2 cups distilled water then cheesecloth, a small saucepan, washed as well as sterilized, a glass bottle with an airtight lid or stopper.

Then squeeze the pouch of flowers over a saucepan, then extract the flower-scented water and then simmer over low heat until and unless you are left out with a teaspoon of liquid. After the previous process, pour cold water into that liquid, bottle it up, and leave it to set overnight.
