Make Body Spray
Making your own body spray is simple and will transform the way you look conventional store bought fragrances.
There is an amazing variety of scents to choose from. With such variety you can blend the perfect perfume for any mood.
Body Spray Recipe
What you will need: 2-6 oz. cosmetic spray bottles and a funnel which will fit into the tops of your spray bottles (which can be purchased through many cosmetic supply companies, links listed below.)
5 oz. of denatured alcohol, perfumers alcohol or 100 proof vodka (perfumer’s alcohol has several chemicals added to create more stability. Buying expensive perfumer’s alcohol is a necessity if you will be selling the body spray and shipping them. )
5 oz. Distilled Water
1 Tbsp. Polysorbate 20 (a coconut derived emulsifier, non toxic). Use 2 Tbsp. of Polysorbate 20 for essential oil blends.
1-2 tsp. Fragrance oil or essential oil (depending on strength)
5-8 drops of liquid cosmetic color corresponding liquid dye (optional)
Combine the fragrance and liquid dye with the Polysorbate 20 inside the spray bottle, add cap and shake vigorously, add alcohol then water. Mixture should settle and be clear.
There are a great many places to buy quality recreations of top market fragrances. As well as many new scent combinations coming into the market each year. The cost of fragrance oil is usually around $4.00 an ounce. As you can see from the recipe, 1oz. of fragrance oil will go a really long way. These are my top 10 ready to use fragrance oil picks.

Essential Oil Blends For Body Spray
Blending essential oils can result in the most complex, nature based smells that cannot be achieved through the use of fragrance oils. Although perfume oils can smell very attractive they can never achieve the multi-faceted nature of essential plant oils.
