How To Make Colognes/Light Fragrances

Just Peachy - the fragrant peach is a family of the rose family. Peach juice is good for your skin as it contains Vitamin A & C. The warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon is a mental stimulant and its earthy scent evens out the high fruity fragrance of the peach juice. The sweet almond oil adds a slightly nuttly aroma and gives the cologne staying power

Ingredients :
1. 1/2 peach
2. 1/3 cupvodka
3. 2 drops cinnamon oil
4. 1/4 teaspoon sweet almond oil

Method :
1. Combine peach slices and vodka in small jar with air tight lid
2. Allow to sit for twenty four hours in dark area
3. Strain mixture to remove peach slices
4. Mix in cinnamon oil and sweet almond oil
5. Transfer to small dark-coloured spray bottle
6. Shake well before using. Rub small amounts at "pulse" points : behind ears, on soft part of wrists and elbows and on neck

Tips :
1. Store excess in dark-coloured glass bottle or jar with a cork or air tight lid (both light exposure and plastic can affect the scent)
2. Can last for six months if it is stored properly
