I have recently used essential oils to make hand scrubs, but I would like to learn how to make perfume. Does anyone have a good recipe and advice on how to find the best oils and which ones blend well together?
the thing to understand with perfumes and essential oils is that you need three notes - a top note (usually sweeter or floral), a medium note, and a base note (which is usually musky or wooden or otherwise strong) in this proportion:
you mix them up and either mix them with a carrier oil or with vodka. The latter is more of a cologne than a perfume.
Some great guides are here: www.overthrowmartha.com/
I have done this before, and what I have liked is patchouli for base, rose for middle tone, and bergamot as a top note
you can also replace patchouli with sandalwood (more people prefer sandal) and replace rose with jasmine or lemongrass.
I made some perfume, but there were so many different recipes that I don't remember exact ingredients. There's lots of good recipes on Pintrest It's mainly essential oils, another oil like coconut, and alcohol.
