Creating your own line of aromatic body spritzes and room sprays is an excellent way of boosting your sales.
Mainstream retailers have long offered these fragranced products at prices ranging from $6 to $20 each — often for bottles as small as two to four ounces in size. With a few simple ingredients and a bit of creativity, you can quickly and easily create your own signature blends for both fun and profit.
Aroma sprays and body spritzes utilize the same basic ingredients. The primary, and most important difference is that anything you plan to offer for sale as a body spritz must be made with body-safe fragrance oils.
Here are the items you’ll need in order to create your own scented sprays:
- Distilled Water
- Witch Hazel Extract (alcohol distilled)
- Glass measuring cup
- Plastic pipettes
- Your favorite essential oils, or body-safe fragrance oils
- Your desired packaging (colored glass, plastic or aluminum spray bottles)
A few combination ideas to get you started:
- Lavender and Orange essential oil
- Black Raspberry fragrance oil
- Lemongrass and Peppermint essential oils
- Vanilla and Peach fragrance oils.
In the glass measuring cup, combine 8 ounces of distilled water, along with 1 ounce of Witch Hazel extract, and 1 to 2 ml of your favorite essential or body-safe fragrance oil. Stir to combine, then decant into your desired packaging.
There may be a bit of oil and water separation in your blends, so be sure to include the instruction to “shake well before using” on your product label. It is also a wise idea to include notations to avoid using directly on fine fabrics, as well as wood finishes.
