DIY (Do it your self) All Green Parfume!

Who said that havig a prfume needs a budget, if you can make your own parfume at home. It's not a must to have  a hundred ingredients, you can make perfumes with simple combinations of essential oils, but a delicate water-based perfume with a floral scent is easier and nicer and can be a good gift for the one you love.

 Making your own perfume enables you to eliminate harmful chemicals or preservatives that are often found in synthetic fragrances, such as phthalates, which might cause health problems. A homemade, all-natural, water-based perfume is the best Green, Earth-friendly perfume. But keep in mind that you have to select flowers of hig fragrant. You can use jasmine,  honeysuckle, lavender, or different coloured tea roses.

All you need

  • Clean cloth made of cotton
  • 2 cups of chopped flowers (of one kind)
  • 3 cups distilled water
  • A little dark bottle with a lid or a stopper


1. Wash flowers' petals from dirt and sediment with tap water.
2. Tie flowers in the cloth and soak inside a bowl in distelled . Cover the bowl with the lid and let the flowers soak all overnight.
3. Next day, remove the lid and gently lift the flower pouch out of water. Squeeze the pouch over a small saucepan, extracting the flower-scented water. Simmer over low heat until you have about a teaspoon of liquid.
4. Pour the cooled water into the bottle and cap it.
N.B. The scent of this perfume will only remain for a month if stored in a cool, dark place. But you'll enjoy a green parfume for a month :)
You might want to try mixing a perfume with essential oils , or mix different scented water to get a new scent.
