Back in the kitchen today, learning how to make some lovely roll on fragrances with my daughter!! 

 

 

We decided to make 10ml roll on fragrances to carry in a bag or pocket.

 

Things we needed:

Essential oils / Fragrances / Carrier oils
For decoration: Flowers / Herbs / Fruit peel
Pipettes / 10ml roll on bottles + roller balls + tops
Cut out pics / Spill mat
Cotton pads if you want to try experimenting with one or more aromas!

Firstly, my daughter chose her fragrance/essential oil:
1) Strawberry
2) English Rose
3) Grapefruit
4) Lavender

Then we chose the carrier oil:
1) Sweet Almond oil
2) Rosehip oil (to go with English Rose)

She put a total of 10 drops of one of the essential oils or fragrances into a bottle, poured the carrier oil on top, shook it (with a finger on the top) to mix. Popped in a flower/peel/herb and I put on the roller ball as it's a little awkward. Stick a picture, if you wish, onto the bottle with clear tape to remind you of the fragrance inside 

 

Top on - job done.  Roll it on your wrist and smell your success!

If you are making a water based formulation for yourself or to sell then it’s very important that extremely high levels of hygiene are adhered to. Please also be aware that water based products will require some sort of preservative to ensure that they don’t spoil too rapidly. Once water has been included in a formulation bacteria can quickly form and spoil the finished product if preservatives are not used.

Some essential oils can be particularly hazardous for pregnant women. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant then please ensure that you have carefully checked that the essential oil(s) you plan to use are suitable. We recommend that essential oils are avoided altogether during the first trimester of pregnancy. Products should be stored out of reach of children. If you’re planning to use essential oils during pregnancy or with babies or children then you should consult with a professional Aromatherapist first.

Some essential oils are flammable and can be hazardous to the environment. Please ensure they are correctly stored and are disposed of responsibly. We recommend that essential oils are never taken internally and that they should not be applied to the skin around the eyes and mouth.
