I cannot use eo on myself and I'd rather not use fragrance oils since they are synthetic but I miss having lotions that smells nice. Are there really any other alternatives? Would the smell of a hydrosol have enough power to scent?

I've never used a pre-made hydrosol all of the ones I've used I made in my kitchen. The lavender and peppermint had a nice smell but not very strong and the rose and lemon were weak. Maybe it's because I'm a novice and I'm not making them correctly?

I have only used premade hydrosols from reputable companies. They are hydrosols, the water soluble part of the plant. The scent will always be mild.
