This month’s featured sample is White Ginger & Amber. Musky and deep with notes of spice and floral, this fragrance is great on its own and blends wonderfully with many fragrances! Nearly every order* shipped out in the month of June will have a little 1/2 sample bottle included. It’s the perfect size for making these sweet mini-perfumes!

18 mL Distilled Water
4 mL Polysorbate 20

Step 1: Wash and sanitize your mixing container and funnel.
Step 2: In your sanitized mixing container, add 4 mL of Polysorbate 20 and 2 mL of White Ginger & Amber.
Step 3: Next add 16mL 91% Isopropyl Alcohol, followed by 18mL of distilled water. It is important to use distilled water because tap or regular bottled water may contain trace minerals and other additives your town or city may add to the water. Along with the aforementioned, there is a chance for bacteria to be introduced, and that is never a good thing when it comes to beautification!
NOTE ABOUT PRESERVATIVES: We didn’t use a preservative because of the alcohol content. But, you could add in a preservative to be extra safe. We suggest adding a water soluble preservative (such as Optiphen ND) in at around 1% of your recipe. Click here to read more about preservatives.
Step 4: Once all of your ingredients are in the same container, the mixture may be cloudy. Give it a stir and it will clear.
Step 5: Using a funnel or your super steady hand, pour the perfume mixture into the pen sprayer.
Step 6: Label and share!
