32 oz. Distilled water
1 to 3 tsp. of scenting oils (this is according to how strong you might want it)
Approx. 1/4 to 1/2 cup Denatured Alcohol or Golden Grain or Ever Clear

NOTE: I have used Rubbing Alcohol and it also works just fine
Approx. 1/2 cup White Vinegar or White Wine Vinegar but the alcohol works best
1 or 2 tsp of Vegetable Glycerin to help hold and disperse the scent
Approx. 2 tsp. oil (this can be any single oil or combo of liquid oil like, Sweet Almond, Fractionate Coconut, Apricot Kernel, Avocado, Jojoba, Meadowfoam, etc). The oil can be used or not, you decide. I like using them in my Body Mists because they help the scent stay longer, but I also use the oil in the ones that I make that can be used for anything, Linen Sprays, Body Sprays, Room Sprays, etc. And I have not had any oil stains, etc. on any of my sheets, etc. Just a bit goes a long way, so one does not have to saturate to get a nice aroma because even with commercial products, saturation can leave a stain.
1 tsp. of Liquid Silk if you like (optional) wonderful in Body Sprays
2 tsp. Polysorbate may help emulsify (optional) have found it still has to be shaken up even with using this to emulsify so have choose not to work with it

I have also found that a 1/2 tsp. or so of either Liquid Homemade soap or a detergent will help to emulsify the mix a bit. This should be placed in the water and stirred in well, then the Alcohol or Vinegar added and then the scent and shaken well.

This formula can be split in half if you don't want to make this size batch.

There are 2 ways to do this, one will make a strong scent right way but will get better in about 2 weeks. The other is really making an unscented base that you can add the scent to as you need to make it. This one will take about 3 to 4 weeks to become a strong scent. So be aware that as time goes on with either process the scent will become richer. So if you use say 1 1/2 tsp of scent and think that it is weak and think you might want to add more, be careful this can become stronger than one might want. Light scents in the concentrated form will need to be used at a higher rate, but the stronger scents can be used a bit lighter.

This process will take a few times to know the scent you are working with and how it will do when using it and mostly because every ones sense of aroma are different so it will take time to know how you like your on mixture. And as is said, if you like it others will too.
