Summer Fragrance with Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lavender and Sandalwood

Hello Everyone,

I just love to wear fresh, fruity, flowery and woody essential oils for my personal summer fragrance. When it is hot  as it is France in the summer time this kind of fragrance uplifts, cools and energizes me. As a researcher and developer of Organic perfumes and skin care based on aromatherapy for over 11 years; one of my favorite kind of formulations to develop is perfume.  This isn’t as  easy it seems because there a lot of rules surrounding perfume especially when using one of my favorite sweet, fresh, fruity and flowery essential oils that has a beautiful green color- Bergamot. The reason it is so hard to use is because of its photo toxicity. In September, when I offer my 240 hour Aromatherapy program one of the things that I will be teaching will be how to  safely formulate  perfume and skin care products . This is why in this Summer Fragrance I have only used a very small amount of bergamot.  I also give you pointers on how to wear a perfume in the video. If you do not want to wear it as a perfume you can use it to freshen up your room.

Here is the  Summer Fragrance formulation:

I have placed the essential oils in drops which equals 3% of the formulation

2 drop Bergamot Essential Oil

24 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil

10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

10 drops Sandalwood Essential Oil

89% Organic alcohol= 1.78 ounces

7% Water= 0.14 ounces

1% Organic Vegetable Glycerine= 0.02 ounces

2oz Amber or colored bottle with sprayer.

Mix alcohol, glycerine and water together. Place  alcohol mixture into the bottle then add essential oils. Roll the bottle between your hands to mix the ingredients together. Put on sprayer.

Contraindications- Photo toxic.

Don’t forget your Essential Oils, Use your Common Scents,

All The Best,
