Favorite Manly Cologne Blends

October 14, 2017

Many people can’t wear commercial perfumes and colognes due to reactions to the artificial fragrances that are used in many store-bought varieties.  Thankfully, essential oils are a great natural toxin & chemical-free alternative. You might be interested in blending your own cologne recipe and it can be really fun to try different blends.  Not to mention, personalizing a blend for that handsome hunk of a man in your life will often make him enjoy the cologne even more! Enjoy and have fun as you explore each of our favorite simple scent combinations! Also, we found some great 10 ml refillable glass spray bottles that are a little more manly than our normal brightly colored bottles. Try our favorite essential oil colognes for a grounding scent that is also energizing. Good for applying right after your morning shower to prepare for the challenges of the day.

Ingredient Note: The base of all our colognes is alcohol. We chose to use 100 proof vodka because it delivers the purest essential oil scents while also preserving the recipe for many months. You could also use white rum with similar results and very limited affect to the scent.

Substitution Tip: You could also substitute distilled water if you’d rather not use alcohol. But this modification will shorten the shelf life to a few weeks. Another option we’ve tried is to add a small amount of witch hazel to the water to help extend the shelf life of cologne or perfume. This would work and increase the shelf life, but it will dramatically affect the scent/aroma in each cologne. These recipes were tested with vodka and we cannot speak to the results with distilled water &/or witch hazel.
