In recent posts we have talked about making roll-on perfumes. There are huge number of carrier oils that you can choose from and many reasons to choose one that best suits you and your needs. Today I wanted to talk about one of my personal favorites, Fractionated Coconut Oil.
If you are wanting to make roll-on perfumes, fractionated coconut oil is an excellent choice. It is a light weight oil that is easily applied and rubbed in without feeling heavy or greasy. It is also clear. For some people, color is important and clear is desirable. However, if you choose Fractionated Coconut Oil due to its color, remember that there are some fragrances and essential oils that will contribute their own colors to the finished perfume. Depending on the fragrance, your finished product may not always be clear.
The fragrance I used today does have some color but it is pretty minimal. When the perfume is transferred into the roller bottles, the material appears more clear than when in the mixing container.
