A lot of people spend their time in their rooms, but they’re not the only ones.
Beauty lovers have discovered a few new ways to make their favourite products more wearable, and we’ve picked out some of the best to try.
Make your own fragrance oil.
The simple and inexpensive solution to a problem that seems obvious in a bottle is to use it yourself.
“You can buy the cheapest and most powerful oil you can find in a supermarket,” says Elizabeth Miller, co-founder of the online beauty brand Beauty Beauty.
No special equipment required.”
This is an easy and quick way to get your own oil in your home, or make a homemade fragrance from your own favourite ingredients.
“I make up the essential oils in my shampoo and conditioner by blending my favourite oils,” she says.
The oil is then diluted with water and sprayed onto a cotton swab to give it the consistency of a perfume oil.
“For this recipe, I used just a drop of my favourite essential oil, Lavender and Myrrh.”
You can find the essential oil on Amazon, but you can also find a few of the more expensive essential oils on eBay, or a similar site.
Miller adds that the fragrance oils are “very fragrant and fragrant”, so it’s easy to wash them in the shower.
It also works well with essential oils such as lavender essential oil and rose essential oil for an added scent.
“These oils are quite good at drying,” she adds.
“A good perfume oil has to be a good perfume for dry skin.
They don’t dry out.”
Miller says she has a number of other essential oils that work well with the essential fragrance, such as musk, musk and vanilla essential oils.
“The essential oils are really nice,” she laughs.
“They dry out very quickly.”
The scent will be more subtle than a perfume, but the oil will last for years.
Miller says that she uses the same basic recipe for every perfume, with the exception of the lavender, and that the perfume oil doesn’t have to be too fragrant.
“It can be a bit strong, so I use a very gentle essential oil like lavender,” she explains.
“There are so many different essential oils for perfume.”

Make a homemade perfume oil with your skin.
“When I first started using the oils in fragrance oils, I was just trying to make a lot of things,” Miller says.
“To get it to work, you have to apply a little bit of essential oil into the oil to get the right consistency.”
Once the oil is blended, it is sprayed onto your cotton swabs.
The swabs are then placed into a plastic bag and placed into the fridge overnight to chill.
After a few hours, the essential-oil oil will have a soft, slightly sticky consistency, which can be used to make any of the essential scent oils that are available on Amazon.
The fragrance oil is made from the essential smell of your skin, and it smells fantastic, Miller says, adding that you can use it as a base for any of your essential scented products.
Miller is currently working on a new perfume oil called Pomegranate and Mint, which is a combination of both lavender and mint essential oils and is going to be released later this year.
“If you’re looking for a new fragrance, I think the Lavender Essential Oil will be the best because it smells so fresh,” she said.
“And Pomegreens essential oil is a good way to have a great scent.
It’s more natural and it has a bit more of a floral note to it.”
Miller also recommends that you use a little of each of the three essential oils at the same time, as they have a unique and complex scent.
Make perfume oil for the outdoors.
A little bit goes a long way in the garden, so making your own essential oil oil for home is an ideal way to give your favourite plants a healthy boost.
“Make your own basic oil is one of the easiest ways to start your own perfume oils,” Miller explains.
You can buy any basic essential oil that you like, or use a mix of different essential oil ingredients, such in the case of lavender.
“This is a great way to keep your flowers looking fresh, because you don’t have any oil to mix them with,” she added.
“All you need is the essential oleoresin capsicum and essential oils.”
Miller suggests making your first basic oil in the kitchen using a mix for your plants and a few essential oils, and then going on to mix in other essential scourries.
“We also use lavender to create a floral bouquet for our plants,” she explained.
“But if you’re making perfume oil to give a floral effect, use an essential oil.”
