Say goodbye to overpriced department store fragrances and hello to homemade body mists that are actually good for your skin! In a department store, you can throw down hundreds of dollars on designer perfumes and fragrance mists. Seems a bit crazy doesn’t it? So, why not save that money for something you really need (like shoes) and make your own sweet-smelling homemade fragrance mists?
Plus, do you even know the ingredients in your pricey perfumes?
All you need for a homemade fragrance mist is water, almond oil, and your favorite essential oil. For this DIY project, we will be making an almond and rose fragrance mist but you can mix and match any essential oil fragrances to perfectly create your own signature scent.
Not only is the recipe inexpensive and sweet smelling, it’s actually good for your skin! Can your $100 perfume do that?
What You’ll Need
- 2 ounces of clean, fresh water
- 2 teaspoons of almond oil
- Plastic spray bottle
- 50-60 drops of your favorite essential oil.
- Pour the water, almond oil and essential oil into the plastic spray bottle.
- Place cap on bottle and shake until solution is fully mixed.
- The water and oils will separate in between use so make sure to shake before use.
For this DIY perfume, I used rose oil and almond oil. Rose not only smells great, it can actually improve the look and health of skin and even improve hormone balance! Almond oil is also a powerhouse when it comes to skin benefits. It’s full of protein, vitamin E and B, and healthy fats. It’s moisturizing, an anti-inflammatory, serves as a skin protectant from the sun, and more!
Essential oils do wonder for your skin. They have a healing effect mentally, emotionally and physically. Plus they're moisturizing, relaxing and chemical-free. Some scents can treat problems such as acne, digestion issues, kill germs and more.
When you mix all your ingredients together, your skin will get a sweet-smelling cocktail that is actually good for it. Enjoy!
