Roll On Perfume Oil Recipe

Ingredients:

.25 oz. fractionated coconut oil (or jojoba oil)
.01 – .05 oz. skin safe fragrance oil of choice

Instructions:

This roll on perfume oil recipe makes one 7 – 10 mL roll on perfume. (Opt for the 10 mL bottle if you’re including botanical ingredients in your bottle.) The amount of fragrance oil used for this roll on perfume oil recipe is calculated as 5% (minimum) – 20% (max) of the amount of fractionated coconut oil used. Please note that this amount of fragrance oil may not be deemed skin safe for all fragrance oils so be sure to check with manufacturer guidelines for max percentage amounts for the fragrance oil you choose when used in perfumes. 5% is .01 oz. of fragrance oil. 10% is .02 oz., 15% is .03 oz. and 20% is .05 oz. (If you prefer to use essential oils, you’ll want to use the minimum amount of .01 oz. or less in your perfume oil. You may also want to opt for an amber or cobalt glass container to help preserve the integrity of the essential oils used.)

Fragrance oils I’m loving right now include Vanilla Verbena (use at 20% – this does contain vanilla and may darken the oil), Cayenne Caramel (use at 20% – also contains vanilla), Rose Cognac Sugar (use at 20% – very small amount of vanilla) and Cardamom True Sugar (use at 20% – very small amount of vanilla.)

You will need to weigh the ingredients. Weighing ingredients ensures more consistent batches and allows for ease of increasing the roll on perfume oil recipe. You can double this roll on perfume oil recipe as much as needed for the amount of roll on perfumes you’d like to make. These make lovely homemade gift ideas for Valentine’s Day or even DIY wedding favors.

If you are adding botanicals to your roll on perfume oil add them first. (Be aware that some botanicals may darken the oil like tea.)

Simply place your botanical(s) – up to and including a tiny whole rosebud or rose petals, a hibiscus flower or even lavender or calendula flowers – into a 10 mL glass bottle (with either a plastic or metal roller ball top.)

Using a digital scale, weigh out the fractionated coconut oil into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or container.

Now weigh out the amount of fragrance oil needed and stir into the fractionated coconut oil.

Then, using a plastic transfer pipette, fill the bottle with the perfume you’ve just mixed.

Snap on the roller ball top and then screw on the lid.

Now simply decorate or label the lid and/or bottle as desired.

This roll on perfume oil recipe is incredibly easy to make. It only requires two simple ingredients, however you can dress up your roll on perfume oil by placing botanicals inside the container with the perfume oil - I used a Hibiscus flower - and decorating the lid with a strip of washi tape for a simple homemade gift idea.

Custom Scented Perfume Recipe for “You’re Scent-sational!” Printable Valentines

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.5 oz Cyclomethicone
.12 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.05 oz. fragrance oil of choice

Instructions:

This custom scented perfume recipe will yield four 4mL perfumes for a total of four “You’re Scent-sational!” printable Valentines. The usage rate of the fragrance oil for this perfume recipe is 8%. Therefore you’ll need to choose a fragrance oil that is safe at 8% when used in perfumes. Typically you can refer to the manufacturer or supplier for this information. For some fragrance oils, you can use an even higher percentage fragrance if desired for a stronger, longer lasting scent.

To create more than four custom scented perfume printable Valentines, simply double or triple the recipe as needed. For smaller amounts and depending on the scale you are using, you may need to convert the ounce measurement to a gram, which is a much smaller unit of measure.

For this customer scented perfume recipe I used a Rose Cognac Sugar fragrance oil. You can safely use up to 33% of this fragrance in your perfume spray recipe if desired. I also really like this Chocolate Orchid fragrance oil for this recipe, however, you’ll need to reduce the amount of fragrance oil to .03 oz. (5%) with this scent.  (If you prefer to use essential oils, use half the amount.)

Using a digital scale, weigh out all of the ingredients and combine in a glass container. Stir well to combine, then using a transfer pipette, evenly fill four 4mL glass vials with sprayers. You can buy these containers in bulk at SKS Bottle & Packaging where I found mine.

Tightly screw the sprayer cap onto each vial.

Now download and print the PDF for my printable Valentines here. You should print your Valentines onto cardstock paper.

This printable Valentine’s Day card features clip art from Old Cauldron Design, specifically from this Valentine’s Day collection. If you prefer to use a different clip art image, simply purchase the clip art you’d like to use and follow my tutorial for creating custom soap labels. It’s the same concept, only the sizes and paper type used are different.

Once you’ve printed out the desired number of printable Valentines onto cardstock, place a perfume vial onto the Valentines. Use a exacto knife to cut two small slits on either side of the vial. Now push ribbon through the slits on either side from the back of the Valentine and tie the ribbon on the front of the card around the perfume vial. Repeat for each Valentines you’re creating.

All that’s left is to gift your Valentines to your best friends and other favorite people!

Looking for a handmade gift idea for a spring birthday or Easter basket? This easy DIY washi tape decorated gift tin is simple to make and is perfect for holding two homemade roll on perfumes, lip balms or guest soaps! All you need is an empty empty altoid tin and two complimentary spring themed rolls of washi tape.

DIY Washi Tape Craft Project for a Decorative Gift Tin

Run strips of one washi tape design along the top and the sides of the tin. Then with the coordinating tape, wrap a strip along the edge and top of the tin. You can also outline the separation with permanent markers, adding designs if you like, to add a bit more pizazz.

Now fill your tin with your gifts of choice. I found that my homemade roll on perfumes fit perfectly inside this tin. You can find recipes for my DIY Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil here. Or make my Tempestuous Roll On Cologne for Men from my fragrance recipe here. Don’t feel limited by these two fragrances though. You can use any skin safe fragrance oil you’re a fan of in lieu of the scents mentioned. For spring you may want to try a collection of floral fragrances like lavender, jasmine or lilacs.

DIY Tempestuous Roll On Cologne for Men

DIY Cologne for Men - Tempestuous Cologne Recipe - Easy Homemade Gift Idea for Men - Also Make Great DIY Wedding Favors for the GuysThere’s a cologne fragrance for men called Fierce that’s distributed via Abercrombie & Fitch. However, in light of their recent negative press, you might be wary about making future purchases from them. Regardless of your stance, their cologne, Fierce, is still a great fragrance for men. But you don’t have to buy it because now you can actually DIY it. Very recently a dupe of this Abercrombie fragrance was developed as a fragrance oil. So not only can you now make your own handmade colognes for men with this great scent, you can also use the fragrance oil to produce other men’s products with this fragrance including homemade soaps, lotions and other masculine skin care products.

Following is a recipe for making your own Fierce-like cologne using a fragrance oil dupe created by Nature’s Garden called Ferocious Beast. Of course, I came up with my own name for this fragrance as well and dubbed mine Tempestuous. You can call yours whatever you like. But if you dig the name Tempestuous, I have created free printable labels for you to use on your own cologne oils you create with this recipe.

Nature Garden’s Ferocious Beast fragrance oil contains citrusy top-notes of orange, lemon and lime, leading to middle notes of rosemary, jasmine, lily of the valley, vetiver  and rose and finishing a woody, oakmoss and white musk base note. Create these as diy wedding favors or homemade stocking stuffer gifts for the guys.

Other fragrances for men you may be interested in trying include The Perfect Man, Game On, and Bay Rum. (Buy any 5 16oz. fragrance oils and receive a $1 off per container from Nature’s Garden.)

How to Make Perfume Oils - DIY Handmade Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil Recipe with Printable Labels - Lovely Handmade Wedding Favor Idea

Dying to wear your favorite soap or candle fragrance with you everywhere you go? Then make your own homemade perfume oils. It’s easy to find many of your favorite fragrances and fragrance dupes online. One company in particular, Nature’s Garden Wholesale Candle & Soap Supplies, offers a wide selection of fragrance oils perfect for using in your own homemade soaps and perfumes. They also carry one of my favorite all time fragrances, Red Velvet Cake, as well as the fragrance oil, Democrat, that I use in one of my bestselling handmade soaps, the Big Lick Salt Bar (recipe here.) Their fragrance oils come in sizes as small as 1oz. so it’s easy to mix and match new fragrances you want to try. Or you can go big and save $1 off per 16 oz. bottle of fragrance oil when you buy five or more. (It’s easy to get addicted!)

The following recipe is for crafting your own homemade perfume oils. I’ve simplified the recipe so there’s no need for a scale as you don’t have to weigh any ingredients. I made this recipe with Nature Garden’s Red Velvet Cake Fragrance Oil, but you can substitute it with any skin safe fragrance oil of your choice. These are perfect for making custom handmade wedding favors or as handmade stocking stuffer gifts. Plus, you can whip these up in about ten minutes or less. For your convenience I’ve also created printable labels for your perfume oils – both in black & white and color – to give your homemade gifts a professional touch.
