Have you ever had trouble finding the perfect perfume for yourself or are just in the mood for a fresh new scent? Try making your own! These all-natural essential oil perfumes are easy to make and completely customizable, plus the roller-ball bottles are compact enough to fit in any size purse so you’ll always have sweet smells on hand.
The first step we took in making these was finding a few small flowers, pine needles, lavender blossoms, or other attractive botanicals that will fit in the bottles. After you find the flowers you like, set them on a paper towel and let them air dry for a day or two. Once the flowers are completely dried, use tweezers to place inside the bottles. Now it’s time to work on creating your own scent.
Tip: As an alternative to harvesting and drying fresh botanicals, dried florals can be purchased at most craft stores.
Here is one perfume combo that we thought smelled great!

How long do these last? Do they spoil for lack of a better term?
Hello Ann – The essential oils do not spoil per se, but do lose aroma over time. Citrus oils (lemon, lime, etc.) are the most volatile and lose their potency the quickest. Exposure to sunlight and heat can degrade the oils more quickly. LorAnn uses dark amber bottles for the essential oils to avoid this, but we do recommend storing the oils in a cool, dry place with the tops tightly closed. Citrus oils can be refrigerated for longer shelf life. The carrier oils, like almond oil, can go rancid over time. I recommend a “sniff” test. If they don’t have an off-smell and the aroma of the essential oils is potent, they are still good to use.
Do the botanicals turn mouldy in the bottles? They are so pretty but I was wondering about that and if you can use fractionated coconut oil or does it need to be almond oil to preserve the flowers etc. Thank you in advance 🙂
As long as the botanicals have been dried completely, they shouldn’t get moldy. Feel free to use whatever carrier oil you prefer.
What are those sweet little pink flowers!
I believe they are hydrangea petals.
