“Essential Oil Perfumes make Scents!”
The Essential Perfumes Make & Take Kit allows for a non-toxic, natural way to enjoy perfume blends. An excellent tool for those wanting to showcase the fun and versatility of essential oils in a class format!
Which is better Vodka or Carrier Oil to add to my perfume?
You can definitely use a carrier oil of your choice - which some prefer over Vodka since it can be sticky. If you use Vodka, we recommend at least 151 proof (IE: Everclear® 190 proof Vodka) since it is high in ethanol (read more on this here) and you can purchase from a local supermarket or liquor store. Vodka is also ideal to use since it doesn't have a scent. If you go with a carrier oil, I’d recommend a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil since it doesn’t have a scent.
We DO NOT recommend using Witch Hazel as this is another water-based medium that can change the scent of the entire blend and won't inhibit bacterial growth like Vodka will.
CREATIVE IDEAS FOR USING THE KIT
- If you're not holding a class and want a small version to make for yourself, consider purchasing a small DIY Kit that includes a recipe sheet, label sheet and the bottles you need to make all the blends.
- Make a spray version of the kit using the 2 oz Fine Mist Spray Bottles and “Essential Perfumes” Labels. Simply add oils to spray bottle then add 1/4 C distilled water in the bottle.
- To add a color to your perfume, there are many skin safe colorants on the market you can add.
- Make up mini rollerball perfumes by using the recipes and putting them in small travel-sized rollerball bottles and using “Essential Perfume” Lid Stickers.
- If you'd like a solid perfume substitute the carrier oil/fixative with beeswax.
- Re-purpose antique atomizers and old perfume bottles - give them new life with a beneficial essential oil fragrance and be sure to add a lid sticker to the bottom of the bottle so you remember what blend is inside.
CREATIVE CLASS IDEAS
- Towards the end of your teaching segment on essential oils, offer those that are purchasing an enrollment kit, one free recipe of their choice.
- Setup a different class each week and charge accordingly. EX: Week 1 you only do “Bliss” recipe. Determine your rate for that speciﬁc recipe and let people know ahead of time what you’ll be making and the cost. Week 2 is “Harmony”, etc. You can also offer those that enroll get one free.
- Use the Essential Oil Perfumes Tear Sheet that comes with 25 sheets chock full of information as a handout for your class.
- Gift a kit to your downline to encourage them to host a class!
- Make up the entire kit and offer it as a free incentive with a large enrollment kit purchase!
- Set out unscented lotion for guests to make their own sample lotion and add the recipe to it. Give them a lid sticker to go on their sample container so they know what perfume blend to use again.
- These would be fun for a camp project, tweens, girls night or to make as gifts!
- Buy Bulk - even better, buy when they are on sale!
- Subscribe to our enewsletter (at the bottom of each page) so you can buy items - including kits - when they're on sale!
- Reuse funnels! Simply mix vinegar and water together and let them sit for 30 minutes and rinse.
- Buy your oils when they are on sale or when they are the POM and stock up!
- Once you have the Kit, you can save money by purchasing the labels, recipes and invites separately rather than purchasing the entire Kit again.
ADDITIONAL RECIPE IDEAS
Not all essential oil companies have all single oils readily available for purchase including valuable and highly regarded scents popular in fragrances such as Rose, Jasmine, Neroli and Vanilla. Furthermore, it may not be cost prohibitive to do a class with a $500 bottle of oil! Therefore, we chose to offer the common oil blends within the kit and have these as additional recipes you can create if you have access to these oils.
