Low-Tox Luxury

Going low-tox for better health doesn’t mean you must do without fun little luxuries. 

Ditching conventional perfumes is possibly

one of the most impactful things you can do 

for your health, 

but that doesn't mean you can't still smell great! 


Whip up your own, customized perfume with the simple recipe below.  You can even change your scents with the seasons!




When it comes to making your own perfume, 

you will want to layer different scents

 to create base fragrances, mid-tones, and top notes. 


When you smell a perfume, the top notes are typically the first thing you smell, followed by middle and then base notes. When you are actually making the perfume, you'll want to start with base notes first and work your way up.




Base Notes:

These are about 15-30% of the blend. Think heavier, warm scents like:

* Vanilla

* Cedarwood, Spruce and ‘tree oils'

* Frankincense, Myrrh

* Sandalwood, Vetiver

* Patchouli

* Clove, Cassia, Cinnamon 


Middle Notes

These should be the bulk of your blend at 30-60% and are usually full-bodied, complex, and comprise the focal point of the blend while also balancing other components.

* Rose, Jasmine, Geranium

* Lavender, Chamomile, Rosemary

* Ylang ylang, Clary Sage

* Cardamom, Ginger, Lemongrass, Black Pepper


Top Notes

These should be 10-25% of your blend. These oils are sharp, uplifting, refreshing, and light to finish off the blend.

* Peppermint, Spearmint

* Grapefruit, Tangerine, Lemon (citrus oils)

* Eucalyptus, Basil, Juniper

* Pine, Sage

Choose one or two scents from each category,

 and combine them until you end up with 

a fragrance you love! 






Lighter recipes work well for the warmer months, while cooler months are great for deeper, spicier combinations.
