There’s a whole world of perfume out there but sometimes, you just want something tailored entirely to your preference without spending big bucks, or maybe you’d like something more natural. Today, by popular demand, we’ve a super easy DIY for you to make your own natural aromatherapeutic solid perfume!
What You’ll Need:
- Beeswax 👉 We used Organic Yellow Beeswax here!
- Refine Shea Butter
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Essential Oils
- Container for Solid Perfume 👉 You can use aluminium jars, deodorant tubes, lip balm tubes or glass jars!
- Glass Pipette
- Glass Beaker
- Double Boiler
- Glass Stirrer
- Digital Scale
Instructions – Makes 10g Solid Perfume. Takes about 15-20 minutes.
- Add 5g of Organic Yellow Beeswax and 2g of Refined Shea Butter in a glass beaker. Double boil the beaker and stir occasionally so the contents melt evenly.
- Once melted, using the pipette, measure and add in 3ml of Sweet Almond Oil. Stir until it’s evenly blended.
- Remove the beaker from the double boiler and allow it to cool a little before adding up to 20 drops of essential oil. Stir again to blend.
a) Make sure to blend your desired scent beforehand. You can read our blog post here on how to create your own essential oil blend.
b) If 20 drops seems too little to you, you can add a little more. But, be careful because too much of essential oils may cause it to leak out of the hardened solid perfume afterwards.
- Pour mixture into your choice of perfume container. Set it aside for it to harden and cool before closing the container.
- It’s now ready to use!
