Homemade solid perfume with beeswax and essential oils

Solid perfumes are much more durable than alcohol based ones, and this is thanks to beeswax, which preserves freshness and flavor for a long time.

You need:
– Beeswax
– Vegetable oil – jojoba, sweet almond, olive or grape seed oil;
– Favorite essential oils (combinations of two or three)

Of course, another important thing you need to have it handy is a container in which to keep the scent. It can be an old lip balm cap, a decoration box, an elegant vanity case or even a medallion that can be closed.

How to prepare:
– The rule is to combine wax and vegetable oil in equal parts. For example, a typical lip balm box fits about 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil and 2 tsp of wax.
– As for the chosen fragrances, for the amount of solid base mentioned above (ie 4 tsp) you will have to use about 40-45 drops of essential oil.

Step 1: Mix the essential oils

First you need to combine three (or two) essential oils to see how the flavors blend together and how strong is the smell. Keep in mind that its strength will diminish when you’ll add fragrance solid base (wax and vegetable oil).

Step 2: Melt the beeswax and the vegetable oil

Melt the wax in bain-marie. When melted, add the chosen vegetable oil (jojoba, almond, coconut, etc.) and mix until you get a homogeneous liquid.[expand]

Step 3: Take the mixture off the heat and add the essential oils

Now’s time to add the “piece de resistance” to your perfume : the essential oils that will give a special flavor. You need to move quickly because the composition will harden immediately.

Step 4: Pour the perfume into the container and wait to harden

transfer your perfume into the chosen container with great care. Pour quickly but carefully. If the mixture solidified before you could pour it in the box, don’t panic. Put the composition to melt on bain-marie. Your fragrance will be ready immediately: it will harden completely in about 10 minutes and you’ll be able to enjoy it for a long time. Or you can make it a gift for a dear soul.
