From Cheap to Chic: How to turn a cheap body spray into a fancy perfume.

body mists-2

It is gonna be a very hot summer, and now is the time to make your way to Bath and Body Works, Victorias Secret, and The Body Shop!  Their semi annual sales are going on and I cannot think of a better time to purchase inexpensive body mists!

Body mists are perfect for this hot sweaty weather because they are light, provide just the right amount of fragrance, and only last on the body for up to four hours tops.  Now the downside of wearing body mists is that they can smell artificial or full of alcohol.  There is an easy way to take your sprays to the next level!  Adding essential oils that complement the scents of the body mists can take your cheap sprays from cheap to chic!!

Imagine that you have bought every “Clean cotton” body spray from your local Bath and Body Works store.  If you wanted to make them more fragrant and extend their longevity on the body, you could try adding a clean essential oil like lavender to do the trick.  The more you add, the stronger the body mist becomes.  If the body mist has a substantial amount of essential oil, it easily morphs into an Eau De Toilette!  Happy mixing!!
