She specifically wanted to know how to make her scrubs smell like cotton candy.

Imagine, sweet-smelling essential oils.

Well, come to find out, there’s actually a blend of essential oils that smells like cotton candy.

In fact, there are other candy scented essential oil blends to try.

Remember, we all smell things differently so some of these may not smell sweet to you. You will need to experiment and when you are making them be strong because they may make you want to eat candy. 🙂

  1. Ok these sound waaay too fun! I can’t wait to give them a try! Thank you… i’m Pinning them all for later!

    1. Stacy Russell says:

      Yes, some of these smell sooo good!

  2. Andrea Nichole says:

    Do the cotton candy and bubble gum ones really work?? I want these scents for my skincare products but don’t want to use synthetics.

  3. Stacy Russell says:

    I do think these blends smell good together but what I think smells like cotton candy my daughter doesn’t. It’s sorta trial and error because your chemistry reacts to the oils differently.
    I couldn’t find any premade oil blend that didn’t have “natural perfumes” or fragrance.
    If you find one, please let me know.

  4. Jennifer says:

    This is a weird one, but I think orange and dragonsblood together smell like those old, gritty, two-toned Smartees lollipops from penny candy places…

    1. Stacy Russell says:

      I remember those!
      I will have to try that combo and see what I think.

  5. Nita Henson says:

    How many drops each would be needed to put into a roller bottle?

    1. Stacy Russell says:

      Hi Nita,
      I haven’t tried using those scents in a roller bottle but I bet that would be great!
      You could experiment by doubling the drops in a recipe and adding them to a roller bottle and then fill the rest of the way with fractionated coconut oil.
      Let me know if you try it.

  6. Karrie Collom says:

    When you say vanilla…. like vanilla extract??

    1. Stacy Russell says:

      Vanilla isn’t technically an essential oil but it’s different than the extract. There are a few different brands. I think like most oils they all smell a little different to each person.
      Edens Garden has a nice vanilla. https://amzn.to/2UOYaEO

  7. Julianne says:

    I never tried these kind of essential oils but they totally capture my interest. Can’t wait to try them, they sound really yummy.
