House of Herbology: Make Your Own Perfume

Perfume is a scent-sory experience that carries the magickal energy of nature – everything from woods, florals to fruits – on your person as you go about your day.

A good perfume tells a story and takes you on a journey, which changes everytime you wear it.

Wearing perfume can be uplifting, invigorating and enlivening, and it can also be sensual too. If you like to experiment with different scents, you may want to consider making your own natural perfume using essential oils.

Making your own perfume is rather easy and utilises a few simple ingredients including a high proof, scent-less alcohol such as vodka, as well as essential oils. Bear in mind it does take some time to age homemade perfume, at least a month, so if you are in need of a scent asap you may want to reach for your favourite perfume bottle instead.
