What are the Best Essential Oils for Perfume & Combinations

Most perfumes on the market today are overflowing with an ocean of toxic chemicals. And some of those chemicals can be severely hazardous to your health. That’s why natural ingredients like essential oils can make for great perfume recipe combinations.

When it comes to the mainstream perfume industry, companies are not required to disclose the ingredients used in their products. They’re able to do so because of “trade secret privacy.”

However, numerous studies conducted by reputable organizations have analyzed these products and found that the chemicals within them can cause a range of health issues, including: eye and skin irritation, immune system problems, respiratory issues, and more.

Best Essential Oil Perfumes5 Best Oils to Use in Your Natural Fragrance

Before we lay out a few natural perfume recipes, here are five examples of “perfume-friendly” essential oils:

1. Lavender

Arguably the most popular essential oil used in perfumes, lavender is oftentimes mixed with chemical ingredients in your typical bottle of perfume. But it can also be used as an ingredient in your own natural perfume. Lavender has a smooth, floral scent that is used for countless benefits. You might spritz some on your pillow to promote restful sleep or you might rub a few drops on your wrist to relieve some anxiety. Even in non-lavender specific perfumes, it is also used as a secondary ingredient.

2. Patchouli

Patchouli is an earthy, exotic scent that is popular in natural perfumes. Its aroma is rich and sensuous and can be used as a strong base note. It is a quite potent aroma making it a great long-lasting scent. Patchouli also contains nervous system benefits that can reduce tension and uplift the mind (not to mention, it is also used as an aphrodisiac).

3. Rose

It’s not surprising that rose can be a great addition in an essential oil perfume recipe. No flower embodies the love and romance quite like rose. Coupled with other oils, it truly is love in a bottle. Additional benefits are both emotional and psychological, as it can boost mood and improve mental clarity and memory.

4. Orange

Citrus oils like orange don’t provide that typical floral aroma. But that doesn’t make orange not an excellent perfume ingredient. While it’s typically not a primary ingredient, orange complements other oils with a sweet additive. And it offers great ancillary benefits such as increased mood and energy.

5. Sandalwood

Sandalwood is a great base note to add to your recipe. A key benefit of using sandalwood in your essential oil perfume recipes is its lasting power.  Naturally, it adds woodsy hints to your perfume for a more unique aroma. An excellent side benefit of sandalwood is its skin regenerating properties.
