Create your recipe for your liquid fragrance. Plan on a formula of 30 to 40 percent essential oils to 60 to 70 percent of dipropylene glycol. Experiment by blending different essential oils or buy a pre-blended variety. Keep the perfumer's alcohol handy for when you later test your fragrance with reeds.
Scent your house with liquid fragrance using a reed diffuser. Reed diffusers feature absorbent wooden reeds that suck up liquid fragrance and expel the scent into the air. This scenting method doesn't involve any flame and is thus safer than candles. It also doesn't require careful pouring, like liquid fragrance rings. Use essential oils for the most natural scents as they are distilled from plants and flowers. Fragrance oils, on the other hand, are created in labs.
- Essential oils
- Dipropylene glycol, fragrance grade
- Perfumer's alcohol
- Diffuser reeds
- Glass bottles, narrow necked with caps
- Small bowl
Combine your essential oils and dipropylene glycol in a small bowl. Using a funnel, pour the combination into a glass bottle, only filling the bottle to the bottom of its neck. Put the cap on the bottle and shake it to further combine the ingredients.
Remove the cap, place the bottle where you would like the fragrance to be released, and insert the diffuser reeds. Check on the reeds after four hours to make sure that the fragrance is being absorbed up the reed. Remove the reeds and add five drops of perfumer's alcohol if the fragrance seems too thick for absorption. Place the cap on, shake the bottle, remove the cap and replace the reeds.
