Treat Yourself to Sweet Orange & Rose Perfume

If you enjoy light and sweet smelling perfumes, check out the two-minute video below for an easy DIY recipe. If you have dried rose petals around, they add a beautiful visual to this perfume. Remember to shake before each use, apply as often as you would like, and store away from heat and sunlight.


Note: You can of course substitute another carrier oil for the sweet almond oil. I chose sweet almond oil because it is light-colored, and I wanted to enjoy the visual of the added rose petals. If you love the rose-scent, you can add even more rose essence to your perfume by making your own rose-infused oil in advance. For even more sweetness, try adding some vanilla absolute. Studies have shown that the scent of rose and orange induces physiological and psychological relaxation. [1]

If rose isn’t your thing, here is another easy DIY perfume recipe: Patchouli-Lavender Roll-On Perfume.
