DIY Essential Oil Perfume


I have a quick and easy project for you today using two of my favorite things - essential oils & stamps!

This natural DIY perfume not only smells wonderful it also looks beautiful displayed on a dresser or in a powder room.  You can mix it up however you like by changing the scent, the bottle color and scrapbook paper.  Below are the basic supplies you will need.

  • Therapeutic-grade essential oils
  • Carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil)
  • Glass atomizer bottle (2 oz.)
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Rubber stamps and ink
  • Bows, ribbon or embellishments
  • Small cotton bag
In an atomizer bottle combine 1 oz. of carrier oil with your essential oil.  I can't really tell you how many drops as that depends on the desired intensity and how strong your oils are.  I would recommend starting with 10 drops and go from there.  You can add additional essential oils to create your own custom scent.

Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit around your bottle and adhere with glue.  I also added some trim to the top of my paper for a finished look.  Next, attach a bow or embellishment to the glass bottle.

On a cotton bag stamp your desired images.  I created a 'Paris' theme using stamps by Cavallini Papers & Co., Inc.  All images were stamped in StazOn ink.

Now you are ready to shake and spritz ... that's all there is to it.

Doesn't this make a cute little gift?  Perfect as a stocking stuffer too!  Simple things bring great joy ...  

Enjoy your weekend!
