Easy DIY Essential Oil Cologne for Father's Day

June 17, 2015

Father’s Day is almost here and we have a simply awesome DIY Essential Oil Cologne perfect for dad. All you need is our Lime, Fennel, and Patchouli essential oils and Grain Alcohol. First test a small batch of the cologne to be sure you like the aroma as much as we do. If you like it, make the full batch below. You can either buy a glass bottle dropper at a craft store or use an old, empty cologne bottle. After the musk is ready, all that’s left to do is wrap it up and add a heartfelt note telling Dad how much you appreciate all the good memories, care and Fatherly advice. Happy Father’s Day. 

What you need:

1. Mix the oils and grain alcohol in a glass bottle.
2. Shake well, and let it sit for 48 hours.
3. Then add 2 tablespoons of distilled water and shake well again before use.

    Hi Linda! If you’ve properly diluted, you may add more essential oils depending on your desired strength of aroma.

    I made your cologne. I can’t hardly smell it. It doesn’t seem to have enough essential oils.

    Hi Kate! We don’t have any guidelines for substituting fragrance oils for essential oils in this recipe.
