Natural Perfume with Essential Oil, by Rebecca Park Totilo
Create beautiful, natural, signature scents by making perfumes with essential oils.
Using the same classic perfumery techniques and processes as mainstream houses, a natural perfumer can blend, dilute, age, and bottle unique scents that rival any name brand.
Perfumes, body splashes, and colognes can be healthy when created with pure essential oils and absolutes. Natural perfumes can also be eco-friendly—unlike their lab-created, synthetic counterparts, since some contain toxic ingredients.
In this guide, you will learn how to create natural eau de parfums that develop in layers, changing gradually with the chemistry of your skin to create a signature scent.
Dimensions: 6" wide x 9" tall x 1" thick.
