Don't you just love using essential oils as all natural perfumes? Here is a fun recipe just in time for Valentine's Day, but can be used all year long! This is a simple essential oil roll on perfume recipe in the scent of Love Potion.
Just the name sounds wonderful, right? But wait until you hear what is in it! This aromatic blend is sure to enhance your mood and aroma. First, let look a little deeper into essential oil combinations for perfume.
Essential Oil Combinations for Perfume
In this blog post we have a Love Potion Essential Oil Blend for you to make, but you can make a custom perfume oil blend. If you're interested in making your own perfume, one of the most important decisions you'll make is choosing the right essential oil combinations for yourself. With so many different oils to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start.
However, by considering the fragrance families of each oil and the desired effect you want to achieve, you can narrow down your options and create a truly unique scent. For example, floral scents are often combined with woodsy or musky notes to create a more complex perfume. Alternatively, citrusy essential oils can be used to add a fresh, invigorating touch to a blend.
Roll On Essential Oil Perfume Ingredients
When making all natural perfumes, roller bottles are my go to. Why? They are quick and easy that's why. I just need the essential oils and jojoba oil. For homemade roll on perfumes, jojoba is my carrier oil of choice.

There is no such thing as vanilla essential oil. Vanilla can not be extracted the way essential oils are extracted. That is why it is called an absolute, it has to do with how it is processed. Here is the one I like:
Love Potion Essential Oil Roll On Perfume Recipe
One of the best things about essential oils is that you can use them in so many different ways. You can diffuse them, inhale them, or apply them topically. Here is how to make a love potion roller ball perfume with essential oils. This scent is perfect for Valentine's Day or any other special occasion. Let's get started!
- 3 drops Lavender
- 3 drops Sweet Orange
- 2 drops Vanilla Absolute
- 1 drop Ylang Ylang
- Jojoba Oil
- 10 ml Roller Bottle
How to Make Roll on Perfume
Add essential oils to roller bottle, fill rest of bottle with jojoba oil (leaving room for the roller top). Place on roller ball and cap, then roll between palms to blend all the ingredients together.
It is best to let the blend "marinate" for at least a few hours or overnight (if you can wait). Be sure to roll between palms before use, vanilla absolute is thick and tends to settle at the top.
Recipe Tip: If you prefer and have it available, you can use vanilla infused jojoba oil and omit the vanilla absolute drops. You can make it homemade but it takes 4-6 weeks to infuse.
How to Apply Essential Oil Perfume Roll On
You have probably heard before, it is best to apply perfume to "pulse points". The pulse points are places where the blood vessels are closest to the skins surface.
These locations let off heat from your skin. So, when you apply the roll on perfume to these locations, it will react with your body heat and emit the aroma naturally.
The pulse points are at the inner wrists the inner elbows, behind ear lobes, bottom of throat, and behind knees. Two other places I like are cleavage line and nape of neck (both warm places!).
Additional Essential Oil Combinations for Perfume
While there are seemingly endless combinations of essential oils that can be used to create a unique scent, there are certain essential oil combinations that are more popular than others. For example, a combination of lavender and vanilla essential oils is often used to create a warm, floral scent.
Alternatively, a combination of citrus essential oils like lemon and grapefruit can create a refreshing, summery scent. Ultimately, the essential oil combinations that are used in perfume-making are limited only by the perfumer's imagination.
Here are a few essential oil combinations to get you started:
- Bergamot and Rose
- Jasmine and Grapefruit
- Lavender and Grapefruit
- Rose and Jasmine
- Patchouli and Orange
- Cedarwood and Sandalwood
By carefully selecting the right essential oils, you can create a perfume that perfectly reflects your personality and let your inner beauty shine through.
