Hi, I'm Stephanie from stehanieknaturals.com and I'm going to show you how to make a homemade perfume oil. First thing you'll want to do is to try to mix base notes, middle notes, or heart notes, and top notes. Base notes are the items like woods and resins that will be the longest lasting and the middle notes are the heart of the heart of the perfume, while the top notes are the ones that you smell first but don't last as long, things like citrus oils. So essentially, it all comes down to experimenting with your perfume mixes. I'm going to start with ten drops each of my base oil, my heart note oil and my top note. Now this is just to give me a nice even number and later on, you can adjust with whichever ones you want to add more of later. Take note of how many drops of each that you put in and this way, you'll be able to recreate your perfume later. Now, add together all the number of drops so that you can know how much of your care...carrier oil to add. If you add together your total number of drops and multiply that by four, it will give you an eighty percent concentration of carrier oil and twenty percent concentration of essential oil. And this mix, you will want to leave for a good twenty-four hours so that the oils can meld together. Sort of like marinating. And after that, you'd want to smell the mix that you have. Evaluate it. You can change it by adding some more drops of whichever oils you would like to add, and let them sit back and mature a little longer. After about one to two months, you will have a finished matured perfume oil that you can now bottle in whichever bottle of your choice and enjoy.
