Create Your Own Essential Oil Perfumes

Create your own essential oil perfumes to boost your mood

Want to create your own natural aromatherapy perfumes to use with your Vanacci jewellery, but not quite sure where to start? We’ve partnered up with leading aromatherapy supplier, Base Formula, to give you some expert advice.

Essential oils by Base Formula

Scents to boost your health and wellbeing

So, what could be better than infusing our beautiful jewellery with nature’s finest essential oils – which will not only make you smell great but will make you FEEL great too.

Essential oils are powerful natural substances that work to trigger healing in the body, mind and soul. They enter your body via your olfactory system (your sense of smell) or via absorption through the skin. Once inside your body the tiny therapeutic molecules work their way to where they are needed, where they can start to take effect. Clever isn’t it?

Safety first

Essential oils are highly concentrated and should never be applied undiluted to the skin. Our Nightfall Elite Pendantis specifically designed to avoid the oils coming into direct contact with the skin, as the Lockstone reservoir is surrounded by hypoallergenic stainless steel.

Getting started

There are 2 different ways to blend and apply your aromatherapy perfumes:-

  1. You can dilute your essential oils in an alcohol base or better still Base Formula recommends using a 100% natural hydrolat (https://www.baseformula.com/gels-hydrolats/hydrolats) to add to the therapeutic properties of your blend. Once you’ve chosen your base, mix 100ml of it with 30-40 drops TOTAL of up to 3 different essential oils. Any more than 3 oils and you risk over-loading or confusing your body. Then, simply spray your perfume blend onto the Lockstone and let it absorb for 5 minutes.


  1. The alternative method is to apply 1 drop of each essential oil direct to the Lockstone. Please note this method is only recommended when the Lockstone material does not come into direct contact with the skin.

Choosing your essential oils

Essential oils have many different therapeutic properties, so it’s best to choose the oils based on what you want to achieve – for example to aid relaxation, to boost energy or aid concentration. Another simple trick is to ‘follow your nose’ and choose the oils that you like the smell of, as these will most likely be the ones that your body needs. Get creative and test out a few combinations. A good way to trial your blend before applying to your jewellery, is to add a drop of each essential oil to a separate cotton bud. Then hold the cotton buds together to see if you like the overall smell.
