DIY Cologne for Father’s Day

Shouldn’t everyday be father’s day?  If you’re feeling inspired to give dad a gift, instead of buying an expensive, toxic cologne, put a personal (and healthy) touch to it by making your own.

Cologne and perfume making is easy and fun.

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.

What You Need:

This recipe provides an “Earthy Spice” scent.

1/3 oz. roll-on vial (10 ml).

10 drops Clove essential oil

20 drops White Fir essential oil

40 drops Bergamot essential oil

5 drops Lemon essential oil

280 drops fractionated coconut oil

Tip: A dropper may be helpful in order for you to get the exact amount.

Directions:

1- Take a glass vial and combine all necessary drops of essential oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil into bottle. Attach the roll-on cap and shake the vial until the mixture is combined.

2- Let mixture sit for at least 24 hours before use. This allows the oils to fully combine.

3- You’re done! Apply cologne to wrists for best results.

Tips: To see if you like the scent, make a small sample first. If you like it, make a larger batch. You can always add more oils to the mixture later.
