Rosemary-Mint Pure Perfume

Winter, the time of year when I start resembling a bear prepping for hibernation. I mean, really, when the sun decides to call it quits before 5 pm, all I want to do is slip into my fluffiest jammies, whip up a steaming mug of herbal tea, and dive into the thrilling world of Grimm's Fairy Tales. But alas, life isn’t a Disney movie.

Caught yawning in the middle of the day? Been there, done that. My secret weapon against the midday slumps? A cup of Matcha tea with a generous drizzle of honey, and a roll-on of my DIY Rosemary-Mint Pure Perfume blend. It's like an espresso shot for the senses.

Let me break it down for you, it's a cocktail of rosemary essential oil, known for its restorative and stimulating properties, and spearmint essential oil that smells like a minty Christmas morning. I then add a sprinkle of happiness in the form of sweet marjoram essential oil, and some green softness from bergamot mint essential oil, which is traditionally believed to be as uplifting as a surprise bonus.

But wait, there's more! I also include the floral notes of lavender essential oil (because who doesn't love a hint of Provence?) and the fresh minty notes of peppermint essential oil. It's like a wake-up call in a bottle. So there you have it, my secret recipe to combat the winter blues!

I use 190 proof vodka in my recipe. I know this can be hard to come by or you may not want to use alcohol in your blend. You can substitute Jojoba oil if you like.  There is also Perfumer's Alcohol on the market which is basically a high-proof alcohol that has been denatured. 

Add 8 ml of alcohol to a small roller-ball perfume bottle.  Add in the following essential oils:

3 drops Bergamot Mint
6 drops Lavender
8 drops Sweet Marjoram
3 drops Peppermint
15 drops Rosemary
20 drops Spearmint

Place the roller ball and the cap on and shake well.  Allow the perfume to sit for several days (shaking daily) to harmonize.

I use a lot of really great essential oils.  One place I like to shop is at Mountain Rose Herbs!!
