On a whim, I stopped into a natural foods store and discovered a who rack devoted to essential oils and carrier oils.
A visit to the library and some short reading has me equipped for the rudiments of mixing up personal colognes. Some books even had pre-made recipes for various scents.
It sounds very easy to do - add a carrier oil, specific drops of essential oils, and some additional alcohol or water. Mix it up, let it sit and give it a go.
Does anyone make their own colognes?
For less than 100 dollars, I could have a HUGE essential oil collection and could make years worth of colognes.
Does anyone know of a place where I can go to find imitation recipes for some of the popular blends that we like? Some of the recipes that I have found have self-made names; having a way to compare a specific recipe with something like, "It smells very similar to Blenheim Bouquet," will tell me which ones to try first.
