  • Small glass container for blending the perfume
  • Dark glass container for storing the perfume

  • 1 tablespoon jojoba oil
  • 2 tablespoons pure grain alcohol or vodka
  • 30 drops essential oil We used sweet orange, grapefruit, peppermint and a lavender/chamomile blend.
  • 1 tablespoon distilled water


  • Start by adding the jojoba oil to the glass container. Then add the alcohol.
  • Add the essential oils.
  • Add distilled water with a dropper.

Add the essential oils in this order:
Base Note – 10 drops of grapefruit; Middle Note – 10 drops of sweet orange and then 5 drops of peppermint; Top Note – 5 drops of chamomile/lavender blend (if you don’t have a blend, then just use lavender).
