Did you know that tons of perfumes contain nasty animal ingredients, such as whale barf (ambergris) and animal gland juice (civet and castoreum)?! Apart from taming the gross factor, another benefit of making your own scents is that you can customize them to capture your je ne sais quoi. This recipe is ridiculously simple, and homemade perfumes make really thoughtful gifts, too.

Best for: All skin types

Top Tip: With so many options for unique essential oil blends, you can cater your perfume to match your current mood or set a specific tone for the day. Two super-simple combos to try are peppermint and grapefruit, or lavender and orange.

Superstar ingredient: Jojoba oil is hydrating and hypoallergenic. Plus, it kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It also eases aches and pains and reduces inflammation. Jojoba contains skin-healing vitamin E, and omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, which make skin incredibly happy.

  • 40 to 50 drops essential oil(s) of your choice 40 to 50
