I love perfumes. I think they are my favorite thing to make and use. I mean you should see my vanity. I have a huge collection of perfumes, colognes and body splashes. I love it because I can choose what what I want to wear and it can change on a daily basis. I love that I can change what I wear on a daily basis.
Making your own perfumes is so easy and a delight. I love sitting down with a group of friends, smelling fragrances, creating blends then diluting into the chosen carrier oil and bottling. Today I wanted to share making a perfume using two fixed oils. Today I will be using a blend of Sunflower Oil and Castor Oil.
Castor Oil is a thick, viscous oil that helps slow the rate of how quickly the fragrance oil evaporates. This means that the fragrance “sticks” to your skin longer. The downside to use just straight Castor Oil is that is heavy and sticky feeling. Not exactly the most appealing feeling in the world. To combat that feeling, I mixed in some Sunflower Oil. I love the feeling of Sunflower Oil. It is light and smooth in texture. It is a favorite among massage therapists.
