Today I’m going to give you a recipe I like for a perfume made from essential oils. You will need small glass bottles and pipettes to transfer the oils, and a small notepad to record your recipe so it can be reproduced or adjusted.

To create our perfume we are going to start by using a couple drops of vetiver and cedarwood as the base notes. This is trial and error, you try it and if you like it good, if not you can change it. Keep track of the number of drops of each essential oil you use on the notepad. When you have your base notes the strength you want, add a few drops of clove bud for the middle note and a few more drops of orange and ginger as the top notes.

Let the essential oils sit for 24-48 hours away from heat and sunlight. Your perfume blend will change somewhat as it matures. If you like the blend, go ahead and dilute it by adding fractionated coconut carrier oil to the bottle. Add a little carrier oil at a time until you feel the dilution is right. If you want to change the blend, you can adjust it before adding the carrier oil and let it sit another 24-48 hours. While adjusting, keep track of the number of drops of oil you use. This recipe will give you a spicy perfume blend. Try other essential oils to make your own unique scents.

How to Use Body Oils

We have a retail store in Topeka, Kansas where we sell body oils. People come in the store looking for a particular scent but they usually want to smell the designer oil types because they recognize the name. Most people do not ask us how to use the oils they buy so I always assumed that they already know what to do but I am recalling how my brother, Land Grant, used his first oil and I think I need to explain some ways to use body oils. Land (yes, that was his given name) fell in love with the designer type body oil called Joop. He bought a 2 ounce bottle and I didn’t see him for a few days. He came back in within a week to buy another bottle and  I asked him if he spilled it or what happened since a two ounce bottle will last quite a long time. He told me he used it all and he wanted more!

How to Use Body Oils:

  • Use a roll on bottle and roll the oil on your pulse points and rub it in (rubbing it in starts it working with your body chemistry)
  • Use a pour out bottle and pour a dime size amount in your palm, rub your hands together and dab the oil on your neck, chest, arms and legs, then rub it in on those areas – you can use more or less according to your taste or scent
  • Blend your oil in an unscented shower gel and take a shower with it before putting on your lotion and/or body oil
  • Blend your oil in an unscented lotion and rub it all over your body – you can then dot the oil on your pulse points with your roll on bottle if you don’t feel the scented lotion is enough
  • Buy your oil in a spray bottle – the oil is diluted with a disperser but you can spray the mist and walk through it or spray it on your clothes and it is just as potent as the oil alone

If you use oils often and you have a different method of applying it to your body, please let me know so I can spread the word.

 

 


A lot of people don’t know the difference between ‘healthy’ skin and ‘unhealthy’ skin. There are actually a number of glaring signifiers to determine whether or not your skin can be considered healthy. There are typically four criteria to look at in regards to healthy skin: hydration, even color, smooth texture, and normal sensations.

Hydration is in reference to whether or not skin is frequently overly dry or flaky; even color is referring to whether or not skin looks blotchy; smooth texture relates to acne, blackheads, scars, and wrinkles; lastly, normal sensations is referring to whether or not you may feel burning or itching on your skin. One of the best ways to ensure that your skin remains healthy is through organic body care.


Using Natural Body Oils

A friend of mine told me she loved the fragrance I was wearing one day and asked what it was. I told her it was Egyptian Musk, a fragrance we carry at Fragrance World of Topeka. (Like us on Facebook.) She eventually got some for herself and she told me she still likes but it didn’t smell the same on her as it did on me.

The thing about body oils is that the fragrance smells one way in the bottle but once you put it on, it blends with your body chemistry and it becomes a signature scent for you. It will still have the same fragrance notes but your chemical signature will make it different on you than on anyone else. One special thing about Egyptian Musk as well as most other musk fragrances is that they are unisex and work well on both men and women.

Applying Body Oils

Winter weather can wreak havoc on the skin. The dry, cold air dehydrates skin, making it appear older and less supple. When properly applied, body oils can reduce the effects of winter weather.

Start by cleansing the skin of all perfumes and lotions. If you have the time and resources, then exfoliating your skin is also advisable. While your skin is still hot and damp generously apply body oils. Allow the oils to soak into the skin before putting on clothing.


Fragrance Oil Gifts

Now is the time of year when people are looking for great gifts to give to friends and relatives for the  holidays. Whether it is for the home or the body, many of us like to give wonderful smelling scents as gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. We have previously discussed using essential oils to scent the air with diffusers. Essential oils can also be added to the bath, massaged into the skin, or inhaled directly.

If you are concerned about using natural skin care products, you should use body oils instead of  perfume or cologne. Body oils are designed to be used on your skin. They may or may not contain essential oils. They are often formulations based on the traditional designer brands. When you purchase perfume or cologne in a department store, you  are paying a premium price for the brand name, the advertising campaigns, cosmetics gifts, and the beautiful fancy packaging. These designer brand name perfumes are comprised of concentrated oils and 75% to 85% alcohol, ethanol and or water.

The alcohol and ethanol used make your perfume smell much stronger than it is but it fades within a few hours. As your perfume (or the alcohol in it) evaporates, it not only takes your fragrance but your natural body oils with it, drying your skin as it goes.  Body oils are pure, concentrated perfume oils in a cosmetic grade vegetable oil base that blend in with your body chemistry making the scent your own. They evaporate naturally giving your skin a softer, smoother feeling – plus they contain no alcohol, ethanol or water so many people who are allergic to perfumes and colognes can wear body oils with no problems.
