Easy Solid Perfume Recipe
Hello lovelies, today I will be sharing an easy DIY vintage solid perfume recipe that you can easily make at home. I decided to put mine in some of my vintage lockets.
- 1 tablespoon beeswax (available at most craft shops) or petroleum jelly
- 1 tablespoon almond oil (or jojoba oil or vitamin E – available at natural foods/health stores)
- 8-15 drops of essential oil (available from most health food stores.)
- 1 container (preferably glass, ceramic or stone, but plastic is acceptable)
- 1 straw (or similar object)
- 1 small glass jar or Pyrex bowl for mixing
- 1 saucepan
Measure out the wax and almond oil into the small glass jar or Pyrex bowl.
Melt the wax in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Stir in the essential oil with a thin stirring stick.
A thin stirring stick. Is used because the wax will start to form solid on whatever you do your stirring with — your goal should be to find something that has an as little surface area as possible, so you lose less of the end product, and also something disposable, so you don’t have to clean it off.
Pour the liquid wax into your final container.
In about 30 minutes, it will be cooled, solid and ready to use.
Will yield about one-half ounce (by volume) of solid perfume.
