Perfumes - dilution is the solution!
Our technical support team was recently asked a question about perfumes.
The asker wants to know if she can use our fragrance oils straight from the bottle as a perfume.
The answer is NO! Each of our fragrance oils is very concentrated. We want people to dilute the fragrance oil into a suitable carrier. If you want to make roller bottle perfumes then a good carrier is Jojoba Oil or Fractionated Coconut Oil. A little bit of body helps make a smooth application. If the mixture in a roller bottle were too fluid it would leak out too fast and application would be messy.
If the application is through a mister then water or cyclomethicone are good choices. Remember to use an appropriate emulsifer when using water as the carrier.
Remember to dilute! It is the only way to make a great perfume.
