Why go out and buy brand new perfume spritzer if you can just make your own?
I've been making perfume, at least my own (sometimes weird and a little off) versions of it, since I was a kid. Back then, it was as simple as collecting honey suckles from the yard, mixing them with water, and spreading the good stuff all over myself. And you know what? It did the trick. But somewhere, somehow I got mislead over the last couple years and found myself buying spritzer perfume instead of making my own. I got sucked in to a particular smell and never reconsidered my purchase of the perfume until I went to go get some last week and the store was out of it. I was hellbent on having a spritzer spray perfume instead of regular perfume and it didn't take me long to deduce that, like so many of my other beauty products, I could just make it myself. I did it for about $2 and you can make some awesome perfume spritzer, too.
How to make your own perfume body spritzer:
1. Find your scent.
I opted with a $1 bottle of essential oil that will probably last me the next couple of years at least. If you're not into the essential oils, don't overlook the good-smelling items in your kitchen. Lemon juice, vanilla, and cinnamon are just a few common kitchen scents that come to mind for this project.
2. Buy a spray bottle.
I got a little one (air travel-friendly) at the local drug store for a $1 and change.
3. Fill the very bottom of your bottle with your scent source.
Use more of your scent source depending on how strong you want your spray to be.
Finish by filling the rest of the bottle with water. Shake. Enjoy! I was so pleased with the outcome of this new spray of mine that I seriously doubt I'll ever buy perfume again. Seriously. I mean that. I'll be able to reuse this spray bottle indefinitely and the oil I bought will last me through many more bottles of perfume. It's the green thing to do and the cheap thing to do. Perfect.
