Where and how you will apply your own composition is a matter of your personal choice. It is advisable to rub the mixture on the hair ends or to your entire hair. Another good idea is to coat your skin with the scent – after all, oils are all natural products that will bing no harm to your body.
How to compose your own fragrance? Before you start mixing the oils, apply a drop of each on a paper towel. This way you will be able to check whether you like the scent or not. Additionally, this method will prevent you from wasting too much of your ingredients. Apart from jojoba oil, you will also need: your favourite essential oils, glass, mixing bowl, bottle made of dark glass and a dropper. After blending all the ingredients together, leave the preparation aside for about two weeks. After that period of time, cool it down to zero degrees and then bring the mixture to room temperature. Your very own, unique fragrance is ready!
