Easy DIY Perfume Rollers

Recently Voyageur brought in some adorable little 2 ml rollerball bottles that are perfect for making your own aromatherapy perfumes!  These 2 ml bottles are so great because you can pop them in your purse or glove box for on-the-go, and they are the perfect size for making trial blends before committing to the larger size rollerball bottles.  



Making your own perfumes can be done using only a couple ingredients: a carrier oil plus essential or fragrance oils.  The carrier oil that you choose is up to you, although you want to make sure it has a long shelf life and is very stable.  This generally means no green, unrefined oils!  We would recommend oils such as jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, coconut oil fractionated, sunflower oil etc. You can add Vitamin E T-50 if you're concerned about the oil oxidizing as it is a natural anti-oxidant that slows the speed at which oils go bad.  If you're using an oil that you've had for a long time or if it is starting to have a smell to it just add a couple drops of Vitamin E T-50 to extend its shelf life.  We decided to go with our new Clear Jojoba Oil for the carrier oil.  Once you have your carrier oil it's time to choose your blend of essential oils.  For a great resource on blending essential oils take a look here.  



As an example we have created 3 perfume blends using our therapeutic grade essential oils.  We mixed the blend up first into our very stylish 5 ml blue essential oil bottle with dropper cap. Each recipe makes 5 ml of concentrated perfume.  These concentrated blends will be diluted with the carrier oil before putting on the skin.

Sexy Florals:  This blend is sultry and seductive with prominent floral notes.  

10 drops Vetiver Essential Oil
20 drops Rose 10% Essential Oil
40 drops Lavender Essential Oil
30 drops Bergamot Essential Oil

Exotic and Musky: The jasmine and mandarin in this blend go strikingly well together, rounded out by the soft, vanilla-like scent of Peru balsam. 

20 drops Peru Balsam Essential Oil
30 drops Jasmine 10% Essential Oil
50 drops Mandarin Red Essential Oil

Headache Relief:  This is a question we get all the time; how to make a blend to help with headaches.  It smells sweet and minty and could help those who are prone to headaches or migraines!

10 drops Vetiver Essential Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
20 drops Cajeput Essential Oil
30 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
30 drops Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil


Slowly drop in all the drops of essential oil into the blue glass bottle.  Now you can add it to your rollerball container!  Pour in 2 mls of the carrier oil of your choice then add 1-2 drops of the perfume oil concentrate.  Our little 18mm funnels are perfect for getting those oils in with no spillage!





Not only can these blends be added to oil to create a perfume, they can be incorporated into lotions or creams, diffused in a diffuser or nebulizer, added into soaps, body mists, hair care, candles and more!  Get creative and experiment with different essential oils, once you find your favourite scent the possibilities are endless as to how you can incorporate it into day-to-day life!
