Floral Body Oil Project
For this recipe, we chose fractionated coconut oil. It’s extremely lightweight and thin so it works well in the Mini Spray Bottles. If you prefer a slightly heavier oil, use a roller bottle to prevent clogging.
Perfume and body oils are considered a leave-on product. When fragrance oils are applied directly to the skin, they can cause irritation. That’s why it’s important to use a safe amount. One way to find out how much fragrance to use is to select “lotion” on the Bramble Berry Fragrance Calculator.
You may notice that usage rate is extremely small. That’s because the fragrance calculator errs on the side of extreme caution. To find the maximum usage rate for a fragrance oil for leave-on products, consult the IFRA Certificate. That can be requested by emailing MSDS (at) brambleberry (dot) com.
The IFRA usage rates for the oils used in this project are listed below. This number refers to how much of the product can be made up of the fragrance oil. For example, Wild Rose Fragrance Oil can be used in your perfume up to 12%. Daisy Chain Fragrance Oil can be used up to 48%, but that doesn’t mean you have to use that much in your product.

Floral Body Oil Project
Complex floral scents make excellent perfumes. They’re extremely easy to make – simply choose a lightweight liquid oil, mix in your fragrance, and transfer to a container.
10 Mini Spray Bottles
3 oz. Fractionated Coconut Oil
Up to 0.4 oz. Blushing Orchid Fragrance Oil
Up to 1.4 oz. Daisy Chain Fragrance Oil
Up to 0.6 oz. Baby’s Breath Fragrance Oil
Up to 0.3 oz. Wild Rose Fragrance Oil
|Pour 3 ounces of fractionated coconut oil into a small container.|
Add the fragrance oil of your choice and use a spoon to thoroughly mix the oils together.
Carefully transfer the oil mixture to the Mini Spray Bottles. If you have a hard time pouring with a steady hand, using a dropper can help.
To use, spray the oil onto the skin. Rub in gently and enjoy the scent!
