How to Use Essential Oils as Warm Weather Scents
As the weather gets warmer, we often start to think about adding lighter fragrances to our scent wardrobe. And what could be more perfect for warm weather than using essential oils?

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural fragrance and properties of the plant they came from. They have been used for centuries in many different cultures for their physical and emotional benefits.

There are a wide variety of essential oils available, each with its own unique scent and benefits. And because they are so concentrated, a little goes a long way. So using essential oils as your main fragrance can be a very cost-effective way to scent your body, your home, or your office.

Using Essential Oils As Your Fragrance for Warm Weather Scents

When using essential oils as fragrances, it's important to keep in mind that they will be more potent than synthetic fragrances.

So start with a small amount and increase as needed. You can also mix essential oils to create your own custom scent.

It's a-kin of wearing your very own custom natural perfume. You get the beauty of a natural fragrance without the chemicals from synthetic perfumes.
