So, instead of buying a product that you don’t know what is inside, how about making your own DIY cologne. And with ingredients you can easily find around your house. Just mix some essential oil and other ingredients and have the perfect homemade cologne you want.

Homemade Cologne Ingredients:

  • Dried or fresh rose petals
  • Dried or fresh lavender
  • 1 bean of vanilla
  • Vodka

Homemade Cologne Preparation:

Add dried or fresh rose petals and lavender inside a clean glass jar. Add the vanilla bean as well. Pour the vodka to cover the rose petals and lavender.

At first, the flower petals will float on the surface of vodka. Over time, when these petals absorb vodka, they will begin to sink to the bottom of the jar. You need to mix the ingredients regularly.

It generally takes at least 3 weeks for this homemade cologne to be ready. But I recommend waiting for at least 4 or 5 weeks. Then, transfer this mixture into a spray bottle and enjoy your DIY cologne.
