Solid Perfumes

HOW TO DIY Solid Perfume

  1. 1 1/2 teaspoon jojoba oil
  2. 25 drops of four essential oils you like (approximately 5-7 drops of each oil). Since wax dulls the scent of many perfume top notes, use a stronger concentration of these—common top notes are citrus and ginger.
  3. Generous 1/2 teaspoon grated beeswax (available at health food stores or online)
  4. Eye Droppers
  5. Non-metal, heat-safe bowl
  6. Small cup
  7. Empty compact, pillbox, locket, or pocket watch necklace
  1. Pour jojoba oil into your small cup. Add all the drops of essential oils and mix.
  2. In your heat-safe container, melt the beeswax over the stove top or 5-10 seconds.
  3. Stir the beeswax. After it's completely liquified, mix with the jojoba/perfume blend.
  4. Reheat the entire blend for just 10 seconds over the stove and continue to stir.
  5. Prepare your empty compact and immediately pour the finished mixture in.
  6. Let your solid perfume cool completely, then enjoy your new custom scent! The texture should feel like a soft lipstick or balm.
