DIY Guide: Redhead Friendly Perfume with Essential Oils

Of course, we redheads need some perfume scents to go with our outgoing, confident personalities and fabulous red hair. I began using essential oils after discovering many of the commercial perfumes on the market were full of chemicals and additives.

We have enough pollution in this world and we don’t need to willingly put it on our skin to be absorbed into our bloodstreams as well. I soon realized that you could smell gorgeous (in a natural way) and the oils could benefit many parts of the body.

There are a wide variety of essential oils to choose from and something to suit every mood and personality. Some of the scents may be too strong for you on there own and can easily be watered down with carrier oils –– like jojoba, olive or almond oil.

Here are a few that I have tried and absolutely adore:

1. Patchouli

This extremely heavy scent is from South America and Asia. It is the perfect hot date night scent. It is said to be a relaxant and has also been said to ease headaches, abdominal pains (cramps), colds and nausea.

2. Ylang Ylang

This oil has an exotic sweet smelling floral scent. In addition to its beautiful smell, it has been highly prized for its ability to stabilize skin conditions –– whether too oily or too dry. It has also been used to stimulate hair growth, aid in anxiety and act as an aphrodisiac.

3. Jasmine

This interesting flower is picked at night because that’s when its scent is the heaviest – the reason why it’s considered a powerful aphrodisiac. It is believed to produce feelings of confidence, aid in childbirth, soothe nerves, causes euphoria and re-energize your whole body.

All of these scents are easily bought at your local health food store.

Rock it like a Redhead!
