Aromatherapy: perfumes

This is a light, fresh toilet water that combines two favorite garden scents – rose and lavender
with fresh herbs and citrus peel for an irresistible scent, perfect for splashing on throughout the day.
2 tablespoons fresh rose petals
2 tablespoons fresh lavender flowers
Peel of 1 lemon (zest only)
1 tablespoon fresh Rosemary
1 tablespoon fresh Peppermint
2 Cups water 1 ¼ cups vodka
Place the flowers, peel, and herbs in a small saucepan and cover with the water.
Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes but do not boil. Cool completely and add the vodka.
Pour the mixture into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid and place in a cool, dry location
for 2 weeks. Strain off all solids and bottle your cologne in a pretty bottle. Yield: 16 ounces.


4 ounces beeswax
½ cup sweet almond oil
1 tablespoon Lavender essential oil
Melt beeswax into the oil using a double boiler.
Remove from heat. Stir in essential oils and keep stirring
for about a minute. Pour into containers and let cool
completely until solid.


1 Drop Queen of the Night Oil 3 drops rose oil
1 drop lemon verbana oil 4 fl. oz white spirit
Blend the three oils in a bottle. Add the white spirit, and shake all
vigorously. A cologne can be made by adding another 1 FL. oz of white
spirit and 3 fl. oz of distilled water.


¼ oz. oil of lavender
60 drops essence of musk
30 drops essence of ambergris
30 drops oil of bergamot
8 oz. spirit
Mix by agitation. Then add:
22 drops oil of cloves
8 drops oil of cinnamon
8 drops essence of ambergris

1 fl.oz lemon verbena or Lime oil 2 fl.oz coriander oil
1/2 fl.oz. camphor or myrrh oil 1/4 fl.oz. white spirit 3 3/4 fl.oz. distilled water
Blend the oils in a bottle, add the spirit and water and shake all
vigorously. Increasing the myrrh oils gives a darker perfume;
increasing the camphor, a lighter and more spicy one. All perfumes ‘behave’
differently on different skins, so it is worth experimenting to find your own balance.


6 drops of Patchouli oil 6 drops of Sandalwood oil 6 drops of Rose oil
6 drops of Clove oil 6 drops of Nutmeg oil 6 drops of Olive oil
Wear as a perfume whenever you’ll be in the presence of the person you’re trying to attract.
Be careful, this stuff is really potent. And don’t be surprised if you find others eyeing you as well.
I find it’s pretty effective for getting a man’s attention. I would probably suggest substituting amber
oil for the rose oil in order to attract a woman.

If you read nothing else here, read this!

Hey all. I am truly blessed to have so many awesome visitors, and I really appreciate all the traffic. Hopefully, what I am learning and sharing is helping you and others as well.
I was checking my stats and I have had several referring links from here I was intriged and went to the site.
It seems like a nice place for RPG, complete with lessons and homework a la Hogwart’s School from Harry Potter.
I started wondering though, some of the potions and other what-nots the students there are making are using ideas gleaned from this site. Which is great! Glean away! 🙂
But I want to make something CRYSTAL CLEAR:
Many plants are toxic. Some will make you sick. Some will even kill you. Painfully.
Essential oils are NOT to be taken internally unless you have spoken with a licensed aromatherapist (which I am not) and your medical doctor.
Some oils and herbs are abortificants, meaning they cause miscarriage. Some induce hallucinations. Some induce other deadly side effects.
Now, I would feel terrible if someone cooked up a concoction using ideas from my posts, and then died because of it.
One in particular I saw involved ingesting mistletoe. BIG NO-NO FOLKS!
So make up your potions to your heart’s content…but be sure you don’t eat or drink anything without the assistance of a licensed herbologist and/or medical doctor.
Now, before anyone gets their knickers in a bunch…Yes I know its a role playing group. But still…I feel the need to put it out there.
Don’t ingest the stuff folks. Seriously.
Ok, now glean away and play nicely.
