DIY Perfume with Essential Oils

DIY Perfume with Essential Oils

Scents carry with them a wave of memories and associations. Maybe a classic department store perfume reminds you of your grandmother or the squeaky clean scent of bar soap reminds you of your mother. Our essential oil perfume opens up options for personal scents you’ll be remembered for, without scary ingredients. Plus, this DIY perfume is easy enough to make, tweak, and remake for years to come.
First, let’s dive into a couple essentials that you should know, like the “notes” of the essential oil blends that make up your perfume. Typically, you’ll smell the quick-evaporating top notes first, followed a moment later by the middle notes—the heart of the perfume. Finally, you’ll catch the base notes, which complement the top and middle notes.
When selecting botanicals for your perfume, start with the base note, soften with a middle note, and finish with a top note that makes a positive first impression.

Base note essential oils:

Patchouli, Idaho Balsam Fir, Myrrh, Frankincense, Cedarwood,Clove

Middle note essential oils:

Ylang Ylang,Geranium, Jasmine, Rose, Neroli

Top note essential oils:

Lime, Tangerine,Grapefruit, Bergamot, Orange, Basil, Lavender, Thyme, Jade Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Coriander


  • Empty 5-ml essential oil bottle
  • V-6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex
  • AromaGlide Roller Fitment
  • Top note essential oil
  • Middle note essential oil
  • Bottom note essential oil
  • Custom labels
  • Transparent tape


  1. Combine 10–15 drops each of your selected oils in the empty bottle until your essential oil blend is balanced.
  2. Once you’re happy with the blend, fill the rest of the bottle with V-6.
  3. Put the roller fitment and cap on.
  4. Print custom labels.
  5. Wrap label around the bottle and apply transparent tape.
  6. Roll on to your neck, wrists, or anywhere you apply perfume.

Exercise Tips

Sleeping Beauty Leg Exercise

Wake up and warm up with this in-bed exercise! Lie on your back and lift your legs about 6 inches off the bed. Keep your abs tights, back flat, feet together, arms to your sides, and knees straight as you use your feet to draw small circles in the air without touching the bed. Do 20 circles clockwise and 20 circles counterclockwise.

(Calf) Raise the Bar

Brush up on your calf raises while you brush your teeth! Start flat-footed and raise to your toes until you get a tight flex. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

At-Work Workout

If you have a desk job, it’s important to get up and move at least every 2 hours. Do some standing stretches for your arms, neck, back, and legs; squat a few times; or walk around your floor or building. The movement helps your body and helps you clear your head and stay productive!

Traffic Jam Session

Stuck in 5 o’clock traffic? Turn up the radio and move to the beat. You’ll burn some extra calories and make the wait a little more fun. For an extra boost, add some ab, glute, or thigh flexing. Just make sure you keep an eye on the road and remember safety first!

In the Hot Seat

Start by sitting up straight. Squeeze your glute muscles and pulse 50 times. Rest for 5 seconds and repeat until you feel a good burn. Take your desk workout a step further and work your thighs too! Place your feet on the floor with your legs together. Press your knees in so you feel your inner thighs working. Pulse 50 times and repeat as desired.

Playtime Meets Gym Time

Make exercise fun for the kids! If you have a baby, hold a plank position on your hands for 30 seconds while your hover over him or her. Lower into a pushup and kiss your baby on the forehead. Come up and repeat as many times as you can. Give your legs some attention by doing wall sits as you read your children a book or review their homework.

Torch Calories—and Grime

Burn calories while you clean the carpet. Push the vacuum only as far as your arm extends and return it to your body without moving your feet. Switch arms every 5 minutes. This quick push-pull motion targets your arm muscles and burns up to 100 calories in 30 minutes! The heavier your vacuum, the more strengthening this exercise is. Use the same method of mopping and sweeping—you’ll burn up to 100 calories in 30 minutes while mopping and 100 calories in 45 minutes while sweeping. Burn a few extra calories and clean the baseboards too!

Burn Calories, Not Dinner

Take advantage of your downtime during dinner! Do some push-ups against the counter while the vegetables cook or jumping jacks while you wait for the water to boil. Do 3 sets of 20 reps of one or both exercises.

Walk Around the Block

There’s nothing wrong with sticking to the classics, and a walk around the block is fun for the whole family. Take your kids, spouse, or dog for a 10-minute walk around the neighborhood. This is a great after-dinner activity to beat a post-meal crash. Plus, you can spend time with your family and stay moving.

Sunset Salutations

Unwind after a long day with a few calming or rejuvenating yoga poses. Pair your practice with your favorite essential oils such as Frankincense, Lavender, or Stress Away™. Try some of our simple, sweat-free yoga poses to get started!

Bonus Tip

Remember to hydrate all day to make your moves most effective and keep your body healthy. Add Vitality™ oils to give your water an extra splash of flavor!
