This cologne contains essential oils of cedarwood, sandalwood, vetiver and patchouli. All these make an incredibly amazing essential oil perfume. This DIY essential oil men’s cologne can be oil-based or alcohol-based. It’s up to you to choose the base ingredient!
If you use oil, then you have to shake it up every time you use it but it’s moisturizing and won’t affect your skin. If you choose to use alcohol, then it’s a very good emulsifier that doesn’t need much shaking before use. However, it’s a bit too drying when applied on skin which may be a downer for people with sensitive and dry skin.
Okay now onto the DIY essential oil men’s cologne recipe!
