If you have Young Living’s Ancient Oils of Scripture Collection, here’s an AMAZING (and easy) perfume recipe to try! Heavy in base notes, this man-slayer is seriously so rich and exotic – I think I’m in love!
The inspiration came from a time when I used to keep my Scripture oils in a drawer in the bathroom. Every time I opened that drawer, my bathroom would be filled with this amazing aroma – like a very expensive perfume – without the toxic after-scent! Even after I moved the collection to a closet, that drawer smelled like Heaven!
So I decided to just experiment and I’m thrilled with the result! Simply take 1 drop of each oil in the collection (except for Cassia – Cassia tries to take over, so leave her controlling self home).
Then, in one grand finale, finish it off with an extra drop of Rose of Sharon!
Warning, again, this is a base-note heavy perfume; so it can be a powerful aphrodisiac! You are welcome, darling! 😘
