Whether you're needing aromatherapy, alternative medicine, skin care or perfume, essential oils can be mixed with vodka to create a variety of individualized scents that are not only fun to make, but cost effective as well. Essential oils offer numerous fragrance types, such as sweet, oriental, floral, woody and spicy scents to custom fit your lifestyle and personality. They also make great one-of-a-kind gifts.

Things You'll Need

  • Small glass bottles with lids
  • Narrow neck glass bottle
  • Vodka, 100 percent proof
  • Glass rod stirrer
  • Liquid dropper
  • Essential oils

Pour one ounce of vodka into a narrow neck glass bottle.

Add the desired amount of essential oil into the vodka using the liquid dropper.

Mix the vodka and essential oil gently with a glass rod.

Smell the mixture, swirl and smell again.

Add additional drops of essential oil as needed to achieve your desired fragrance.

Pour the finished fragrance into a glass jar and tighten the lid.

Store fragrance in a dark, cool place for 72 hours to meld ingredients.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use coffee beans to clear your olfactory glands, allowing you to clearly gauge the strength and scent of the fragrance.
  • Do not use metal bowls or utensils to mix ingredients. Some essential oils react with metal and this can alter the fragrance.
