Since winter is coming, I wanted to make more of my DIY dry oil perfume spray recipe. This recipe is very similar to another perfume recipe that I posted a while back, but it has one important new ingredient. Oil. I used an oil to moisturize my skin for the winter. I switch between recipes in the summer and winter because this recipe is more moisturizing. I use it as a perfume, but I especially like to use it after shaving. This recipe is part of my friend Danielle of DIY Danielle's Grab & Go Easy Gift Tutorials. She's doing 30 days of handmade gifts, so go check it out if you need some holiday gift ideas.
If you've never made a DIY bath and beauty recipe, this one is a great one to start with because it's so easy. I didn't even measure my ingredients! I just eyeballed them. You can use the cyclomethicone straight on your skin, so you can be a little off on your ratio. If you want less oil, feel free to use 1/4 oil instead of 1/2 like I did.
In the tutorial video below, I talk a little about the carrier oils. I used fractionated coconut oil, but you can use any carrier oil except actual coconut oil because it's too thick. If you want to learn more about carrier oils and their uses, check out my book Carrier Oils available on Amazon.
What You Need
- 4 ounce spray bottle
- 2 ounces cyclomethicone
- 2 ounces carrier oil (I used fractionated coconut oil)
- 5% fragrance oil (up to 30 drops in this recipe) or 2% essential oil (up to 6-12 drops in this recipe) I used pear fragrance oil from Crafty Bubbles
To make your DIY dry oil perfume spray recipe, just add all of the ingredients to your spray bottle and shake. I highly suggest adding half of your essential oil or fragrance oil and seeing how you like the scent. You can always add more if you need to.
I made a video to show you just how easy this recipe is and offered a few more tips if you want to make it yourself.
