Hi, I'm Gigi, the creator of The Cocktail Perfume Collection. And today, I'm going to show you how to make a homemade perfume essence. What you're going to need is some vodka for the fragrance, not for drinking. Pick a few of your favorite essential oils and we also need a container to mix it in. I decided that we're going to do an uplifting perfume. So, I've picked three different essential oils, Bergamot, Geranium and Melissa. So, what you're going to do, after you've picked your essential oils, I want you to play with it on a cloth in terms of mixing it. A drop of the Bergamot and let's say, a drop of the Geranium. Then you play around with it and then, you determine what is essential oil mixture you're going to use. Because once you add the alcohol, you cannot fix the perfume any longer. What we're going to do is now, take eight ounces of vodka, pour it into your glass container. You're going to add 15 drops of the Bergamot, seven and a half drops of the Geranium and two drops of the Melissa. O.k., we're going to put the top on and we're going to shake it. And then, you're going to have to let it sit for 48 hours. It will be worth it. Again, I want you to name it. I named it my creation. You've picked out all the gorgeous essential oils, you need to name this. And after 48 hours, I know you will have created something fun and unique. And don't drink it. I'm Gigi from Cocktail Perfume.
