How to Make Citrus Scented Perfume

The smell of citrus is very nice. People sometimes leave orange peels in a dish of water in the kitchen to give off a nice citrus smell. It's like a home made air freshener. The same concept can be applied to making perfume. Here is a recipe for making a citrus scented perfume. You will need:

  • 1 tsp dried lime peel
  • 1 tsp dried lemon peel
  • 1 tsp dried orange peel
  • 1/4 cup of vodka
  • Castor oil
How to make homemade citrus perfume:
  1. Combine dried lime peel, dried lemon peel and dried orange peel. Add the vodka and 1/4 teaspoon of castor oil.
  2. Pour mixture into a glass container and cover tightly. Let sit for one week in a cool, dark place.
  3. Transfer citrus perfume into a clean spray bottle. Spritz on neck and wrists.
All complete in three simple steps. It takes some time to complete but it's worth a try. If the mixture doesn't work out as well as you like then change the portions around to see what happens. You can find out how to make a powdered version here. I hope you try this recipe!
