Take a tour in aromatherapy shops where you could sample various scents and choose those that suit you.  Look For Perfume ContainersYou may look around the house to search for some old bottles with tight fitting stoppers or lids.

Bruising will open the tiny fragrance pouches in the petals and release the scent. Make Your Perfume OilFirst, fill 2/3 of the container with your base. For bottles with narrow opening, use a funnel when pouring so that there will be no spills or you could use a fitting medicine dropper. Afterward, add your selected fragrance drop after drop.
