Padma Laksmi's personal mix of oils to create her perfect scent

I'm headed to The Body Shop ASAP to create this  mix...I found this in the new book, The Ellements of Personal Style...pick it up for more insider tips and tricks.

25 drops Neroli Essential Oil
30 drops Gerranium Essential Oil
20 drops Rose Essential Oil
10 drops Mandarin or Tangerine Essential Oil
5 drops Bay or Laurel-Leaf Essential Oil
Jojoba Oil for body, bath or massage oil

For Concentrated Perfume:
"Mix the above into 1/2 ounce of jojoba oil, then pour it into a vial with a tight lid through a small funnel.  After bathing, dab on pulse points and rub a few drops into the ends of long hair in the summer."

For Body, Bath, or Massage Oil:
"Mix the above quantities of essential oils into 4 ounces of jojoba oil and shake vigorously before each use."

These are great gift ideas too...I would use a perfume bottle from Anthropologie like this one:

Perfume bottle, $38
