Natural Perfume with Essential Oils

Do you want to wear perfume, but prefer to avoid the toxic artificial ingredients they’re made with?  Are you sensitive to synthetic fragrances?  There are lots of ways you can use doTERRA oils to replace synthetic perfumes, or create natural ones.  In fact, you can create custom scents tailored to your preferences, your mood or the kind of day you’re having.

The best part is, as you smell the perfume blend you’re wearing throughout the day, you’ll be getting the aromatic benefit of the essential oils, too!  If your blend includes Wild Orange, you’ll notice your mood lifting.  If you’re wearing Balance, you’ll experience a grounding, calming effect.  Blends with Clary Sage can help balance your hormones, as well as smell lovely 🙂

 The Flower Oils

doTERRA offers several essential oils that are extracted from the flower part of the plant.  (Some oils come from the stem, the root, the leaves, etc.)  As you know, many flowers have absolutely lovely scents all on  their own.  The essential oil of that flower is the most potent, concentrated form of the compounds that give off that fragrance, and can be used as a lovely perfume.


Floral, dry, sweet

Rose oil is extremely expensive in its pure form, as it requires literally tons and tons of flower petals to produce just a small amount of essential oil.  By offering it prediluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil, the price is much more affordable.

  • Emotionally uplifting
  • Helps balance moisture levels in the skin
  • Reduces the appearance of skin imperfections
