Candy Fluff Fragrance Oil DIY
- Preferred candies
- Paper towels
- Carrier oil
- Collect your favorite candies, and place them over 2-3 layers of paper towels. 4-5 candies should be enough for this. You can also use coffee filters instead of paper towels.
- Tie them tightly with a string or a rubber band.
- In a saucepan, bring about 2-3 cups of water to a boil.
- Lower down the candies tied in paper towels into the water with a string. Let it boil for about 5-10 minutes. You can either hold it via a string or keep stirring to avoid the paper touching the bottom of the pan and burning.
- Switch off the flame. Let it cool down and keep it aside. If you feel the fragrance is not strong enough, use more candies to concentrate the scent.
- Now in an empty bottle, add about 80 drops of carrier oil. The carrier oil you use is dependent on your choice. It is preferred to choose an unscented oil such as jojoba oil or almond oil as it won’t interfere with the fragrance of the essential oils.
- Add about 15 drops of the candy fragrance that you made in the previous steps.
- Seal the bottle and shake well. Let it sit for a few hours before using it.
- Your fragrance oil is now ready for use.
Candy Scent Essential Oil Blends
Instead of making candy fragrances from scratch, there are other ways you can try to create a candy fragrance. Blending different essential oils together can create a similar fragrance. Use them in the above recipe instead of the candy-flavored water. Here are a few of the blends that you can try.
1. Cotton Candy Blend
To create a fragrance like cotton candy, you can use two drops of grapefruit essential oil, along with two drops of ylang-ylang essential oil and one drop of vanilla oil. This should give you the smell you desire but if it’s not too strong, add a few more drops of each essential oil in the same proportion as mentioned.
2. Candy Cane Essential Oil Blend
Four drops of peppermint, with three drops of cinnamon oil and two drops of sweet orange, can give you a strong scent that will be similar to a candy cane.
3. Jelly Bean Blend
For making this blend, you need two drops of each of the following oils:
- Lemon oil
- Grapefruit oil
- Bergamot essential oil
- Juniper oil
- Lemongrass oil
- Sweet orange essential oil
Since it requires many essential oils it might not be easy to make if you are not a collector of essential oils. Mix all the essential oils in the right quantity to obtain a jelly bean-smelling blend of oils!
4. Bubblegum Blend
With just four drops of grapefruit oil, two drops of ylang-ylang oil, and one drop of eucalyptus oil, you can make a fragrance similar to bubble gum.
If you plan to use the fragrance oil blend for products that might contact your skin, then it is essential that you lower the concentration of essential oils to 10% and do a patch test on the skin with the fragrance oil. Do not use essential oils directly on the skin but rather mix it with a carrier oil as it may irritate due to high concentration. If you so wish to smell like candy, apply a few drops of the oil to your clothes rather than your skin.
