  1. I’m glad to learn that using everclear or vodka is what makes the fragrance last longer. I cant wait to try this. Keep the education coming! Thanks Plant Therapy !!

  2. I made my own roller and I love it! It is so cool to make my own potions. Will be making a lot of them for gifts.

  3. I’m glad to find this recipe! I haven’t made a perfume yet, because I didn’t want to purchase the polysorbate! Glad I can use
    Ever clear or vodka and not have to use the polysorbate!

  4. I can not wait to try this. I have eliminated toxic perfumes from my life, but this is a great way to add some lovely scents back into my routine, not just valentines day! Thank you!

  5. Mmmm now what to make in a roller bottle. So many choices. I missed this for Valentines Day, but that’s okay. Smell8ng nice works for everyday. Now to work on just the right blend …or two.

  6. i have been looking into creating roll-on scents for perfume only, and it is nice to find information from a reputable company.

    1. You are right, Esther! The Polysorbate in the recipe is for customers who would prefer to use Witch Hazel instead of Everclear. I will be sure to add that to this blog to help clear up any confusion 🙂

    1. Julia, the aroma will not last as long when using a carrier oil, but is still a lovely substitution if you do not want to use Everclear, Vodka, or Witch Hazel 🙂

  7. Is there a benefit to using the witch hazel and polysorbate 20 vs a carrier oil? I’ve always just used a carrier oil and now I’m wondering if this would be better.

    1. Brenda, this recipe was designed specifically as a perfume roll-on. Using the witch hazel (or alcohol)/polysorbate combination helps the fragrance of the essential oil last longer, versus using the EO in a carrier oil alone. However, you are more than welcome to use a carrier oil if that is what you prefer! We just like to give our customers different ways to use their oils 🙂

  8. I love how they gave you the room to use your own blend and then provided other DIYs for Valentine’s Day in the same post.

  9. I cannot wait to try this! I recently made a bunch of perfume rollers using a carrier oil, and have been disappointed at the lack of aroma. I bet I need to do this version instead. Thank you so much for posting!

  10. I just love all the wonderful DIY’s Plant Therapy gives us. They are so great to make and give as gifts. Thanks for always inspiring us to use our oils in ways that help us and others!

  11. I used February’s OOTM, surprised with how well this recipe works! Scent lingers for a while, will definitely be making this over and over again!

  12. Does it matter what proof of vodka is used? Some recipes I’ve seen call for 100 proof, but that’s really difficult to find, so I’m wondering if it really makes a difference.

    1. Holly, the higher the proof is, the better. However, we realize in some places it can be hard to get, so just do what you can 🙂

    1. The Polysorbate in this recipe is used as an emulsifier, but if you were to use a carrier oil instead then you would not need it 🙂

      1. Dale, the ingredients in this recipe are different because the roll-on is meant to be used as a perfume, rather than for therapeutic benefits. When using alcohol and the polysorbate (as an emulsifier), the fragrance will last longer than if diluted in carrier oil 🙂 I hope this helps answer your questions!
