DIY Floral Roll-on Perfume

|

A few years ago, Ella and I made our own perfume using food extracts, but now that she’s older I thought we could try DIY Perfume using Essential Oils! Here is a guide on how to make a simple DIY Floral Roll-on Perfume.

DIY Essential Oil Roll-on Perfume

Recently, Ella and I were in one of those typical tween clothing stores and she was asking if I would buy her the cheap perfume they had on offer.

That same store had recently come under a bit of heat with a government recall because high levels of lead were found in their cosmetics, so there was no chance that I was going to risk buying their perfume and letting Ella spray it on her skin.

Instead, I suggested that we make our own customized perfume – which she was over the moon excited to do!

I love the little roller perfumes that we made. They are the perfect size for experimenting with your own classic scent and the roller is so convenient for travelling. 

While I am giving a suggestion about what kind of scent combination you can make, feel free to play around and experiment with what you think smells best! Ella and I enjoyed adding a couple drops of the oils on different pieces of cardstock to experiment with which smell combinations we liked before we added it into the roller bottle.

This would be a great activity for a birthday party or sleepover party. I love sending kids home with thoughtful “goody bag gifts” or “loot bag items” rather than a bunch of dinky plastic things that will just be thrown out. (Just be sure to check with the parents first as some people have different rules on cosmetics or to ensure that the child doesn’t have a skin condition that the essential oils could aggravate.)

NOTE: Children should not handle essential oils without supervision. I recently had a friend accidentally spill lavender oil all over her hand and her skin afterwards resembled a chemical burn. Just because these products are natural doesn’t mean that they aren’t strong and should be goofed around with. You may feel more comfortable handling the essential oils yourself and letting your child handle the rest of the perfume creation process.

DIY Roller Perfume Materials

Tip: swap out the essential oils listed here for your own preferred oils. I loved using raspberry, ginger and rose in mine.

Have you ever made your own perfume? I loved being able to create a customized scent with Ella and this was so much more special for her than picking up a cheap bottle from a tween store.

  1. I know what you are attempting to imply and your point does
    make sense but I can’t say I totally concur with you.

    You see, there might be some complications when it comes to the problems you have said.

    But I love the time you invested in describing your view.

    I am interested in this topic and will certainly dig deeper into the problem, though
    it will require me to spend some time looking for
    current data and reading scholar posts.

  2. I just made this perfume and I must say that it smells amazing. Now,I need a recipe to keep my husband off of me!
    Any ideas?

  3. Hi,
    I haven’t tried this recipe yet but a different one. My question is, must you place the perfume in a dark place for a certain period of time before using it?
