Supplies and Equipment Needed
Large spoon or butter knife for stirring
2 oz PET Bottles with sprayer
Artisan’s Perfume Base
Body safe fragrance oil
• Use PET containers with fine mist sprayers. Do not use bottles made with PVC because the fragrance oil will likely break down and degrade the PVC.
• You may need to adjust the percentages slightly if the fragrance oil is on the strong side.
• Measure all ingredients by weight, not volume.
5% Artisan’s Perfume Base
5% fragrance oil
Using the Funnel Pitcher and scale, weigh out 8 ounces of Cyclomethicone.
Measure by weight .40 ounce of body safe Fragrance Oil and add it to the Cyclomethicone. We used Light Blue type fragrance oil in this recipe. Usage is 5% of fragrance oil to the Cyclomethicone. In this tutorial, 5% of 8 ounces is .40 ounces.
Add 5% of the Artisan’s Perfume Base. Weigh out .40 ounce of the Artisan’s Perfume Base and add it to the Cyclomethicone. The Artisan’s Perfume Base will add a cooling effect to the spray.
Stir slowly until fully incorporated. Cyclomethicone stays completely blended and crystal clear without the need for shaking.
Slowly pour the product into 2-ounce Tapered PET Spray bottles. This tutorial will make four 2-ounce bottles of Dry Oil Spray.
Mix and match fragrance oils to come up with a unique scent. Enjoy!
