Diffuser and Perfume Recipes: Homemade Scents Using Essential Oils and Fragrance Notes

Mixing your own perfume seems daunting at first, but with a little direction, it's not so difficult.

We've shared a handful of perfume recipes below to get you started. These are given in ratios (x:100), so you can calculate your own proportion.

In addition, for ease of reference, we have provided the correct amounts for 9ml and 30ml bottles.

You can use fractionated coconut oil (FCO) or perfumer’s alcohol (PA) as your  carrier agent.

Fall Scents and Diffuser Recipes

Autumn brings out the best scents, doesn't it? We've gathered a few of our favorite fall-scented diffuser recipes below.

You can find the fragrance notes and essential oils to mix these recipes in our shop as well!

Quality Fragrance Notes & Essential Oils

Our fragrance notes and essential oils are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. They are 100% pure, and sourced only from the most reputable distributors.

We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases.

These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, even with natural materials.

And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.

IMPORTANT! If you have children or pets in your household, read our blog post about how to safely use and store essential oils.
