It can be expensive to buy scented lotion to match your perfume for layering. Here is a simple way to save a lot of money – make your own homemade scented lotion. It is so easy and you can get the exact strength you want. Also, it seems that the scent stays with you better when you apply it in the form of lotions or oils.
Homemade Perfumed Lotion
Favorite perfume, liquid scent or essential oils*
Pour lotion into a container with a lid. Add as much of your perfume or oils that you want to the lotion and stir. I add a little perfume and if it isn’t enough, I add a little more.
*Make sure when you buy essential oils that you buy the kind that you can use on skin.
*If I am going to go through all of this work I like to buy a nicer lotion that I love and that I know works well. I use either Gold Bond or the Wal-Mart copy of Gold Bond.
