NOTE: This product is intended to be crafted by those 15 years or older.  You are expected to take full responsibility for your own personal protection and safety including but not limited to the use of protective clothing such as an apron, goggles, gloves and a hair net.

Preparation of Your Work Space

Create a work space that is clean and large enough to prevent contamination from outside sources.  Select an area that is not accessible to children and pets. We recommend wearing protective clothing such as an apron, goggles, gloves, and a hair net.

2Prepare The Base

Start off with a pre-made Luxury Body Mist II base designed for handmade body sprays. Then measure 16 oz in a clean glass Pyrex cup. Note: 16 oz of base will make approximately (2) 8 oz bottles, (4) 4 oz bottles or (8) 2 oz bottles of body spray.

Incorporate Fragrance and Color Additives

Wondering how to make body spray with fragrance oil and color additives? Here's what you need to know.

Fragrance: You can incorporate 1 to 2 teaspoons of fragrance oil per 16 oz of body spray base. Stir well. Notice that the more fragrance you add, the more likely it is that your body spray will thin from the fragrance oil. If you want to add essential oils instead, you can add 1 to 2 ml of essential oil per 16 oz of body spray. You will need a plastic dropper to measure small amounts such as milliliters. Stir well.

Color: After you have scented your body spray, it's time to add the color. You can add as much cosmetic color to your base as desired. Stir well. Note: Do not add so much color that the skin is stained. The body spray should always remain white when being rubbed into the skin. If it is colored, then too much color has been used.

Measurement Notes: 1 teaspoon = 5 ml.


Pour your body spray into bottles and close with a body spray pump, disc top, or cap. If the body spray is thicker, you may find it easier to fill a jar with a lid instead. Alternatively, for thicker body sprays, you can still use a bottle by slowly heating your mixture to 130º then pouring into the bottles. Heating much higher than this risks degrading the preservative system and may allow your body spray to grow mold, bacteria or yeast.


If selling your body spray you will need to label it with the product name, your company name, contact information, ingredients, directions for use, and bar weight. Then you're ready to list your product online or start selling at craft fairs, farmers markets, and other venues!
