They are perfect for blending with each other to create a unique aroma or using individually. Below are some Fragrance Oil Uses to help you to enjoy fragrance in your everyday. Check out our Pinterst & Facebook page for more creative Fragrance Oil Uses and ideas.

CANDLES

Sprinkle your favorite Fragrance Oil into the wax near the wick of a candle before it is lit. As the candle burns, the oil will heat up and the fragrance will drift throughout the room. This is one of our favorite fragrance oil uses.

 

ROOM FRESHENER

Add several drops of Fragrance Oil to a spray bottle full of water. Use the spray in any room in need of a freshen up.

 

CARPETS

Add several drops of Fragrance Oil to a box of baking soda and mix well. Allow this to dry for a day, then sprinkle the baking soda onto your carpet, and allow it to sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Vacuum to freshen carpet.

 

POTPOURRI

Add several drops of your favorite Fragrance Oil to Potpourri that needs refreshing. This can be repeated as many times as you like.

 

LINENS

Place a few drops of Fragrance Oil on paper towels. Take the individual paper towels and place them between sheets, pillowcases, or towels.

 

DRAWERS

Add a few drops of Fragrance Oil to a cotton ball and place in the corners of your drawers to freshen up stored clothing.

 

HAIR PERFUME

  • 1/2 cup distilled water/rose water or witch hazel
  • 5 to 10 drops of Eternal Essence Fragrance Oil.

Pour the water into a spray bottle and add the fragrance oil. Shake well before each use and simply spray as lightly as you want on freshly washed hair and style as usual.

LAUNDRY

Washer: Add several drops of Fragrance Oil in your washing machine, after the water is filled, with each wash for fresh smelling laundry.

Dryer: Use several drops of any Fragrance Oil on a six-inch by six-inch cloth and toss it in the dryer with your clothes for a dryer sheet solution.

 

BATH SALTS

  • 1 Cup of Epsom Salt
  • 2-4 drops of Fragrance Oil

DRY DOG SHAMPOO

1 Cup Baking Soda
1 Cup Corn Starch
10 Drops EEO Fragrance Oil (Vanilla and Coconut Cream are nice, feel free to make your own blends)

You can apply the powder a few different ways.
1. An empty and clean baby powder container
2. Make your own “shaker” out of any “lidded” container you like. You’ll just have to poke some holes in the top.

Shake the shampoo over your dog, starting at the bottom and staying away from the head. Then, wait about 5 minutes or so and just start brushing your dog’s fur to spread the powder around. I use my hands and the brush to get a little around her ears, etc.

*Remember that your dog is NOT ingesting the oil nor are you rubbing the oil onto or into their skin. The oil is there just for fragrance and there isn’t enough of a concentration to do any damage to your fur baby.

TOILET SPRAY (POO POURRI SPRAY)

1 tsp. Rubbing Alcohol

30-40 drops of Fragrance Oil (Lemongrass and/or Peppermint)

Water

 

Pour 1 tsp. of Rubbing Alcohol in a 3 oz. spray container.

Add 30-40 drops of Eternal Essence Fragrance Oil of your choice (Lemongrass and Peppermint are good choices). Add water to fill the container and give it a good shake. Spray 3-4 times into toilet bowl before use to trap odors.

 

BODY WASH

6 cups of water

2 (4.4oz) bars of Dove soap (Make sure it says Beauty Bar)

1 tbsp. Coconut Oil

Using a cheese grater, grate bars of dove soap into a large bowl. Bring water to a simmer in a large pot. When the water is simmering, mix in grated soap and coconut oil using a spatula. Mix consistently (but not non-stop) until soap is melted, approximately 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, add several drops of your favorite Eternal Essence Fragrance Oil, and let it sit uncovered in the pot for 2 hours. Stir once after 2 hours and bottle it up into your containers using a funnel. An empty shampoo container works well.

 

FOOT SCRUB

Granulated Sugar

Olive or Coconut Oil

Fragrance Oil

 

Pour 1 cup granulated sugar into a mixing bowl. Gradually add your favorite Olive or Coconut Oil and mix until you have a slightly wet, but grainy consistency. Add a few drops of Eternal Essence Fragrance Oil. Transfer the scrub to a container and enjoy this scrub, which one of our all-time favorite fragrance oil uses.

 

MASSAGE AND/OR BODY OIL

4oz  Massage Oil Base (Olive, Coconut, Sweet Almond, or any that you prefer)

15-20 Drops Fragrance Oil

Container with a lid

 Mix Fragrance oil and Carrier oil together well and pour mixture into a container for use.

REED DIFFUSER

Mineral Oil

Fragrance Oils

Vodka

Small Bottle – something with a narrow mouth and wider bottom.

Reed Diffuser/Kebab Skewers

 

Using a funnel, pour mineral oil into 3/4 of the bottle. Next add 1 tbsp. vodka. Add approximately 12 drops of your favorite Eternal Essence Fragrance Oil for every 1/4 cup of mineral oil that you have added. Insert the reeds into the bottle and cut as necessary, they should be approximately double the size of the bottle.

PLAY DOUGH

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup salt 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1.5 Tablespoons cooking oil

8-12 drops of Fragrance Oil

1 cup boiling water

In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, salt, and cream of tartar together. Add cooking oil and fragrance oil to the dry ingredients. In a small saucepan, add 1-cup water and food coloring and bring to a boil. Add boiling water to dry ingredients and mix until it sticks together. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then knead dough. Store in airtight containers. Refrigeration isn’t necessary but will make your play dough last longer. Scented play dough smells yummy so make sure you tell the kids not to eat it.

AN INVESTIGATION: USING FRAGRANCE OIL IN A COSMETIC BASE

When you want to use a Fragrance Oil in a cosmetic base as one of our favorite fragrance oil uses, you will want to perform an investigatory (lab-scale) batch first. This is because these oils have solvent qualities which, in too large an amount, can break down the chemical bonds in the base.

Here’s how to do that!

  • Set your scale to metric units.
  • With your beaker standing on it, tare the scale (setting it to ’0′).
  • Pour in 30 g of base.
  • Add 3 drops of the Essential or Fragrance Oil.
  • Mix well, cap, and check in 48 hours.

If the scent is good and it does not separate, you are good to go, but remember, the ratio to use is .05 or half of one percent, not  5%!!!

To understand the math, here it is (by volume):

A Given:

5 ml = 100 drops 

So…

600 drops = 30 ml of base

.05 (per cent) of 600 = 3 drops of the fragrance oil
