Refreshing Summer Cologne Formula

Just because artificial fragrances can be harmful to our health doesn’t mean we can’t still smell delicious without them. This cologne formula is light and very refreshingójust the thing for warm summer daysóand it uses all-natural ingredients. Not only that, some of them are thought to be cheering, concentration-enhancing, and relaxing!

Some of us like to keep this delightfully fresh cologne in the fridge for a cooling, uplifting spritz when we need one. Read the formula here:


1/2 part essential oil blend
1 1/2 parts water
8 parts vodka, rum, or brandy

Essential Oil Blend

10 parts lemon essential oil
10 parts rosemary essential oil
5 parts lavender essential oil
5 parts bergamot essential oil

1. Combine ingredients thoroughly, pour into a glass jar with a screw lid, and allow to sit for 3 to 6 weeks.

2. Decant finished cologne into a spritz bottle or a blue or amber glass bottle.
