DIY All Natural Perfume Roll-On

This is not a fancy post. I would have loved to create an adorable and attractive meme, but alas, this basic one will have to do! 

I came up with a perfume roll-on recipe using Young Living's Joy essential oil blend, along with a few other Young Living oils, plus a tad of vanilla extract. This blend I think falls into what perfumers call the "chypre" category. Sharp, woodsy, mossy. Its lingering base notes of patchouli, cedarwood, vetiver, and vanilla will last on the skin for a few hours and help to bind together the other elements of the fragrance.
Here's the recipe:
6 drops of Joy
2 drops lavender
1 drop patchouli
1 drop basil
1 drop cedarwood 
1 drop rosemary
1 drop vetiver
1-2 drops of vanilla extract
3/4 tsp. coconut butter
sweet almond oil: enough to fill up 1/2 oz roller bottle

Drop essential oils into a 1/2 oz roller bottle (as pictured), add vanilla and coconut butter, and then fill remaining room left with sweet almond oil. Shake well and apply onto skin as often as desired.
