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.

5 Reasons To Keep Lemon Handy In The Kitchen

5 reasons to keep Lemon handy in the kitchen

Lemon and Lemon Vitality ™ essential oils are superheroes in the kitchen. They can combat an endless variety of kitchen catastrophes with their bright, freshening power. We’ve put together these all too familiar situations to help you see just how they can save the day:

Lemon Essential OilBeat bad smells

You’ve just arrived home from a weeklong family trip. You open the door from the garage and are met with the aroma of low tide on a 98-degree day in New Jersey. The culprit? That tuna casserole you threw in the trash bin and forgot to take outside before you left. Before you reach for the kerosene and matches (the house is obviously doomed at this point), you remember the bottle of Lemon essential oil you keep next to the sink. You take the trash out, open the windows, and add a few Lemon-saturated cotton balls to the bottom of the bin. Not only is the smell gone, but now you’re not sure if you’re in a kitchen or a blossoming orchard of lemon trees.

Choose the right refreshment

On a hot summer night, nothing sounds better than a refreshing cold treat. In the freezer, you have a carton of your favorite tropical-fusion ice cream, but you also have all the ingredients to make homemade fro-yo that will be a lot kinder to your waistline and wellness. You combine frozen coconut yogurt, mangos, oranges, a kiss of honey, and a couple drops of Lemon Vitality in a blender, and in no time, you have a warm-weather treat you can feel great about.

Brighten your mood

It’s 7 a.m. on a rainy Monday. You’re in the kitchen pulling out bowls and spoons for cereal, and you hear the kids running around upstairs fighting over who knows what. You didn’t get to bed until way too late last night because you had to finish the last episode of your favorite show, and you’re filled with regret. You’re tempted to just walk upstairs, hop back into bed, and let the children fend for themselves. As a final, last-ditch effort, you add a few drops of Lemon essential oil to your diffuser. You pause and inhale slowly and deeply. A warm, bright aroma fills your senses. You feel your spirits rise, and you’re able to greet your kiddos with a smile (or at least not a scowl).

Save your sink

The kitchen sink is doing that thing again. The first time you smelled it, you checked to make sure the family hamster was safe in its cage because it smelled liked something had died. Then you realized—though hard to believe—it was just the smell of normal food buildup. Luckily, you know exactly how to tackle this without any bleach or other harsh chemicals: first baking soda, then vinegar, rinse it all down with water, and finish with a dozen drops of pure Lemon essential oil. In less than five minutes, that putrid smell is replaced with the lovely, fresh scent of pure lemons!

Create divine desserts

Lemon VitalityYour in-laws are coming over for dinner for the first time tonight. You’ve spent the last four hours getting everything prepped for the perfect dinner, and now you’re trying to decide what to make for dessert. You want to finish the night off with a confection to remember, one that will lock in that great in-law reputation for good. You pull out your secret weapon, Lemon Vitality essential oil, and go on to make the most vibrant and flavorful lemon pound cake that you—or any of your guests—have ever tasted. Who knew you could win brownie points with lemon cake?

An Oil Cleanse to Keep Your Skin Timeless-Looking

An Oil Cleanse to Keep Your Skin Timeless-Looking

Wrinkles are not the only sign of aging that visibly add years to our face; sagging skin, age spots, and dull skin tone also reveal the passage of time. And when we rush through our routines, skipping the steps necessary for caring for our skin, we can end up with unhealthy-looking skin.

Maintaining a cleaning regimen that removes makeup and dirt from skin can help keep the look of healthy skin long past youth. This year, renew your efforts to care for your skin’s natural beauty and keep it looking timeless with this simple cleanse!

Skin Care Boost

Essential oils can be great for gently cleansing the skin, whatever your skin type!

Cleanse Recipe:

1. Start with a good cleansing base oil and pour ¼ cup into a clean glass bowl. We suggest:

All Skin Types For Oily Skin For Dry or Maturing Skin
Olive Jojoba Avocado
Sunflower Sweet Almond Apricot Kernel
Tamanu Grapeseed Argan

2. Add 1–3 drops of one or more of the essential oils listed below:

All Skin Types For Oily Skin For Dry or Maturing Skin
Lavender Oil Bergamot Oil Myrrh Oil
Geranium Oil Helichrysum Oil Rose Oil
Frankincense Oil
Clary Sage Oil
Royal Hawaiian™ Sandalwood Oil


Open pores by rinsing your face with warm water.
With upward rotations, massage oil mixture all over face for 1–2 minutes.
Leave mixture on face for 1 minute.
Saturate a clean washcloth with warm water.
Place towel on face and leave for 15–30 seconds.
Slowly and gently wipe off oil.
Repeat steps 5–7 until your face feels clean.

Young Living ART Skin Care SystemYour skin will love an oil cleanse anywhere from twice a day to once a week, depending on how your skin responds.

If your skin still needs a little extra care—maybe a toner, moisturizer, or serum—we recommend any of the products from our ART® line. This skin care line is a great way to maintain your natural beauty.
