Making your own musk oil is a very exciting way to create something that is all yours and no one else has.

This article is going to explain to you how to go about making your own fragrance so that you will have something truly unique.
There are several different ingredients that you will need in order to begin. You need to make a list of these ingredients and make a trip to the store before you begin. Be sure that you purchase flowers that you really like the scent of. They will be the base of your scent. Next, you will want to purchase glass canning jars with lids, a carrier oil like olive oil or almond oil, vitamin E soft gels, a cheesecloth, funnel, a few decorative bottles, and a ribbon or string. Now that you have all of your ingredients you are ready to go.
You begin making your musk oil by putting all of your flowers into one of the jars that you purchased. You will then take the base oil that you purchased and you will pour this over top of the flowers you just placed into the jar. Now, put the contents of the vitamin E soft gel into the bottle. Place the lid on top of the jar and shake up the mixture very well.
Once you have completed those steps you will get a large bowl and add very hot water to it. Place your jar into the bowl of hot water and let it sit there. When the water is no longer hot you will remove the jar for the water and shake your mixture one more time. Now, find a safe place to keep the mixture so that the jar will not get broken. Leave it in that location for approximately 30 days. Remember to shake the jar everyday while it is in that location.
The next step to making your musk oil is to take the cheesecloth that you purchased and place it inside of the funnel. Put the funnel into the decorative bottle you also purchased. Start pouring the mixture into the funnel. When the funnel is full with leaves and petals you will remove the cheesecloth and gently squeeze it so that the oil will fill the bottle. Repeat this process until all of the oil is inside of the decorative bottles.
If you do not want to throw the cheesecloth and flower petals away, you can tie the cheesecloth with the petals inside and place it into the refrigerator. You can then take it out and place it into the bathtub when you are ready to relax. This adds a great scent to your bath or shower and it can be very soothing.
Musk oil can be used to add a wonderful scent to your body if you use it like perfume. However, you also have the option of heating the musk oil and using it when you are getting or receiving a massage. The most exciting part about all of this is that you made this scent on your own. No one else will have this fragrance. Use your imagination and try different scents. You may find out that you are good at making this type of oil. There are many possibilities when you find a trade that you are good at. Take the time to experiment and get it right.
