    Default 1st fragrance ever made (by me!!!)

    So I made something before I joined, and I love wearing it. Its sillage is fantastic, and it projects in wafts throughout the day.
    Okay, here it is. Super simple but I like it.

    Texas Cedarwood essential oil mixed with a synthetic Peppermint (aromatherapy bottle.)

    Should I add some alcohol or anything to execute this better?

    Are you wearing that neat??? Doesn't it burn a bit?

    Aromatherapy use would have you wearing that at a 10% dilution. Perfume is only 20% ish and a super strong extrait only 40%.

    I would say yes for your skins sake unless you have it on a hanky, cotton wool or clothing.

    I am wearing it without alcohol. I figured since the peppermint is not an EO that it kind of is diluting the cedarwood. I have oily skin if that makes a difference, but no, it does not irritate my skin.

    I would say the cedarwood EO is about 35% of the solution...

    Each to their own, but I suppose in favour of diluting it, then it would last much longer.

    Everclear is illegal in CA. Can you use denatured alcohol for fragrances?

    Fractionated coconut oil is a good fragrance base if you don't mind oils.
