The essential oils were first used in cosmetics, including perfumes, before experiencing a more varied use.
Today, it is possible for everyone to have your own perfume.
How to create one for you ?
Above all, we need a basis consisting of two to three essential oils, a fixative (optional) and alcohol. Like any mixture, a product will dominate the other, either by scent or by color. Based on the percentage used, you will have a perfume in a cosmetic sense, cologne or perfume toiletries. The following are taken from a book on perfumes written by Nicholas Barry perfumes to make your own. For classic cologne, you will use 100 ml of alcohol, 4.5 ml of essential oil of neroli flower, 3 ml of rosemary oil, 7 ml of orange oil, 7 ml or 4 ml of lemon or bergamot oil. You mix these ingredients and let stand for one about a month.
Then, place the bottle overnight in the freezer and the next day, filter composition with a special filter perfumery. You have your perfume!
Learn about the different scents
Depending on your tastes, you can choose between various flavors of plants which nature offers us. Be aware that strong scents can “up the nose or head.” If you are new, opt for soft and delicate fragrances. Among the scents available, you can choose from floral scents, amber or woody. Species that can inspire you are also varied. Choose the ones that will help you relax or to, or to bring you the tone.

You will use 4 drops of oil of sage oil as a fixative.
