If you are making multiple bottles of essential oil perfumes at once, you should place an ingredient label on the bottle to help you remember what fragrance it is.

Before you can find the right combination, experiment with different base, middle, or top notes. Remember that top notes are more likely to evaporate than middle and base notes and that middle notes tend to evaporate slightly quicker than base notes.

While the perfume can be used immediately, it's best if allowed to sit for a week or so to let the oils to combine fully. This allows the fragrance to last longer and be more powerful when worn.

Benefits of Wearing Essential Oils as Perfume

There are several benefits to wearing essential oils as perfume.

First, essential oils are natural, so they are gentle on your skin and won't clog your pores like some synthetic perfumes can.

Second, essential oils are concentrated, so a little goes a long way. You only need a few drops of essential oil to enjoy its fragrance all day long.

And third, essential oils can have therapeutic benefits. For example, lavender oil is known for its calming properties, while peppermint oil is invigorating.

Risks of Wearing Essential Oils as Perfume

If you're looking for an alternative to conventional perfume, essential oils might be worth considering. However, there are also some risks to consider before using essential oils as perfume.

Concentrated Plant Oils

First, because they are so concentrated, it's easy to use too much and end up with a headache-inducing scent that's overpowering instead of pleasant. Use the least amount of drops and dilute your essential oils with a carrier oil. Learn moire about what to do when essential oils don't work.

Prevent Skin Irritation

Second, not all essential oils are suitable for use on the skin. Some can cause irritation or allergic reactions, so it's important to do a patch test on a small area of skin before using any new essential oil.

It is best practice to dilute essential oils before applying them to the skin. Hot essential oils, like cinnamon and cassia, must be diluted well with a carrier oil prior to applying to pulse points and should never be dabbed on without diluting. Learn more about essential oil mistakes.

Store Essential Oils Properly

And third, essential oils can degrade quickly when exposed to sunlight or heat, so they need to be stored properly and used within six months to ensure they retain their potency.

Final Thoughts on Essential Oils for Perfume

Overall, there are both benefits and risks to consider before using essential oils as perfume. If you do decide to give it a try, be sure to start with just a few drops and see how your skin reacts before using more. And be sure to store your essential oils in a cool, dark place to extend their shelf life.
