Written by Lucas M. Hall

Sandalwood is a popular and versatile essential oil used in many different types of perfume. Its sweet, woody scent is both grounding and uplifting, making it perfect for use in both daytime and evening fragrances. In this article, we’ll show you how to make your own sandalwood perfume using a few simple ingredients.

You’ll need:

  • 1-ounce carrier oil ( jojoba, almond, or grapeseed oil )
  • 10-15 drops of sandalwood essential oil
  • ½ ounce vodka or rubbing alcohol (optional)


  1. Start by mixing the carrier oil and essential oil together in a small bowl. If you’re using vodka or rubbing alcohol as an emulsifier, add it to the mixture now.
  2. Use a funnel to transfer the mixture into a small bottle or vial.
  3. Seal the bottle and shake well to combine the ingredients.
  4. Allow the perfume to sit for at least 24 hours before using, so that the scent has time to develop. To use, simply apply a small amount to your wrists or neck. Enjoy!
