Learn how to create a natural solid perfume that you can easily take with you in your pocket, including when you're flying!

This is a 'base recipe' to create any solid perfume so we are not specifying here any particular blend of oils (scent). But you can refer to our list of full recipes for inspiration or read the blog on Blending your Oils 101 if you want to create your own.

The final quantity of solid perfume is small, for only one tin here, but feel free to multiply the volume of each ingredient for a bigger batch.

 

Ingredients

  • 30 drops of Essential Oils
  • 10gr of Beeswax
  • 15ml of Almond Oil* 

Tools & accessories

  • double boiler
  • spatula
  • round tin box
  • whisk (optional) 

Step by step instructions

  1. Blend your Essential Oils in a glass or small bottle. Mix well and close or cover.
  2. Melt the beeswax in a double boiler
  3. While still on the stove at low temperature, add 15ml of almond oil and the blend of essential oils.
  4. Stir the mixture well
  5. Pour into a small tin can and let cool for at least an hour (but ideally 2-3 hours) before using.

Et Voila!

 

* you can use other carrier oils but look for oils that have a neutral odour if possible. You can also blend for instance almond oil with a bit of coconut oil for a slightly different texture.

Benefits of body oils for skin and hair

Vegetable oils - also called ‘carrier’ or ‘base’ oils - are oils that are extracted from various seeds or fruits by a physical process called "cold pressing*, meaning the fruits/seeds/kernels are crushed to squeeze out their oil. These oils are commonly used in cooking (olive oil, sunflower oil) but are also extremely beneficial for skin and hair. And choosing what oil is best for you will depend on their natural composition and your skin type. To help you chose, here is a little guide about what each oil is good for.

Oils covered: Almond, Apricot, Argan, Avocado, Hemp, Coconut, Jojoba.
