Essential Oil Perfume Recipes

It’s helpful to understand the purpose that each note plays in the larger chord (smell) of the perfume:

· Base note: Lasts the longest, and is usually something like vanilla or sandalwood

· Heart note: Middle note – tends to be somewhat floral. It’s the smell that hits right when you take a whiff from the bottle.

· Head note: Subtle – blends into the base and heart, evaporates quickly and may smell different as it combines with different base and heart notes.

Once you have your chosen oils, you’ll need to use the appropriate ratio of essential oil:

2 parts base: 1 part heart: 1 part head -So if you doing 20 drops in a 10ml atomizer that would be: 20 drops base: 10 drops heart: 10 drops head
