DIY Roll-on Perfume with Essential Oils

DIY Roll-on Perfume with Essential Oils |
Who says smelling delicious has to be toxic? Here is a VERY EASY way to make your own DIY roll-on perfume at home using essential oils! You can use any essential oil (or blend) you want, but I chose to make mine using: vanilla, lime and lavender. The great thing about using essential oils is that they not only smell so wonderful, they actually have wonderful beneficial properties that can help you relax, calm, de-stress, and uplift your mood (depending on which ones you use). Because essential oils can be expensive, you may want to read this post about how to save $$ and get them at wholesale prices in a starter kit!

Some of my favorite combinations for roll-on perfume are:


Fractionated coconut oil (like this)
Jojoba oil (like this)
Essential oils of choice, I used a vanilla/lavender blend, and lime (where to find essential oils at wholesale prices)
Roll on tubes 10ml (like this)
Dropper (optional, like this)


1) Fill each 10ml roll-on perfume bottle with the following:

  • 1.5 tsp fractionated coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp jojoba oil
  • 12-25 drops of high quality essential oil of your choice (use more if you want a stronger perfume, I prefer it more subtle)

2) Snap on the roller
3) Shake as needed to combine.

    Please advise using essential oils that have been steam extracted or distilled. Some oils are extracted with petroleum distillates and are unacceptable..

      Hi Karen,

      I’m interested in your comment, and would like to ask just out of interest why essential oils extracted with petroleum distillates are not acceptable; are they bad for the skin?

      Thanks, M

    I was wondering about the vanilla as well I make my own vanilla extract. Is that what you mean. There doesn’t seem to be a young living vanilla essential oil.

    Do suggest you adding alcohol? I’ve read elsewhere adding high-proof vodka is necessary, but perhaps that’s only for spray bottles…
