DIY: Essential Cologne

Father’s Day is coming up and instead of buying an expensive, toxic cologne, put a personal (and healthy) touch to it this year by making your own.

Cologne and perfume making is easy and fun. Make sure to check out our previous blog post for more information on how to get started.

These cologne recipes have been tried and tested by both men and women and have all been unanimously given two thumbs up. Feel free to switch up the oils to make your own personal blend.

These cologne recipes are about a 20% oil and 80% carrier oil based. If you want a stronger scent, you can make it up to a 30/70 ratio. The cologne recipes below are for a 1/3 oz. vial (10ml). You will need to adjust your recipe if you use a smaller or larger vial.
