Happy National Fragrance Day!💖
I’ve always been a fan of wearing perfume. When I began to read about the ingredients in my lotion, perfume & body wash, I decided to make a change, a change that would benefit my health. I found an alternative-I crafted my own perfume with the help of a book by @melissa_poepping.
I’m so thankful for an easy swap.💖
Fabulous harvest of two kinds of plumerias, peach/coconut and floral, red and pink roses, red and white snapdragons (smell floral with a touch of iodine} and dozens of spicy Vietnamese gardenias. Into the tincture jar! #homemadeperfume
Ok basically the entire home smells of my new hobby.
I’ve been using essential oils as perfumes ever since my visit to Mysore about 2.5 yrs ago (time to go back). As I was wondering around, a man approached me and told me about his family shop making incense and oils. I know it sounds bad, but yes, like some duckling I followed this man to his shop.
I called @motormuse to join me at the shop and think we spent over 2 hours smelling all these beautiful oils his family made. We left the shop happy and broke and the remainder of my time in India / Srilanka I smelled of either Rose oil, my fav, or Sandalwood (is there anything more Indian, the smell just takes me back!) By now I have a small collection of oils and recently I decided to start blending them, to see if I could create more layered scents. (Some scents evaporate quickly, other stay longer, by blending long and short lasting scents you can get a more diverse scent and a longer wear). I’ve been doing research into which scents have what effect on your body, to see what would work well with my oils. Now I’m playing around with dosage and just creating blends that I like.
If any of you have tips for me, I’m still looking for a reliable brand / company for my oils. So far I’ve mainly got my oils on trips abroad. Back home, I find that most oils are really cheap but poor in quality.. or if you want to share your fav blends, feel free to send me a DM
If you’re still reading this, haha thanks for dealing with my chatter, these oils just make me really happy & I wanted to share that!
