More DIY witchery! This time, my solid perfumes. I’d originally planned on just doing my actual daily perfume but I thought it would be a great idea to use one of my favorite essential oils for one as well. All you need for this is to melt one part beeswax, one part organic oil (I used EVOO), and add however many drops of your essential oil that you want. Since I already had all of the ingredients, the only thing I bought were the containers (little pill bottles from Michael’s for only 99¢). It only takes about 45 minutes to dry, unless you pop them in the fridge. Super easy way to keep your essential oils on hand!!

DIY Natural Solid Perfume Recipe

Solid Perfumes are a great substitute for liquid bottled perfumes. With the natural ingredients used in this recipe, you will not have to worry about toxic fumes entering your body. This specific blend of oils create a relaxing and calming aroma that will assist in relieving stress and bringing love into your life.

Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • ½ Almond Oil or any other carrier oil
  • ½ Beeswax or Carnauba wax
  • Alkanet Root (optional)
  • Rose EO
  • Lavender EO
  • Jasmine EO

To make, place your choice of wax into a double boiler on high heat. After it melts, pour your carrier oil and stir until you get a smooth consistency. Lower heat so the carrier oil doesn’t start cooking! Alkanet Root is optional, but I recommend it is you want to give it a pretty pink/peachy color as shown in the photo. If you decide to use it, simply add the herbs and use a strainer to rid them before pouring into your container. You can now add your essential oils. If you are familiar with essential oils and know how to use them, then add as many drops as you feel are appropriate. If not, depending on the brand of essential oils you are using and the amount of wax & carrier oil you placed in your boiler, you will need to add around 20-30 drops of each essential oil. Stir, turn heat off, and pour into your container. I topped all of mine off with some dried flowers! If you decide to do this, be sure to add the flowers before the perfume dries. 

I hope you all enjoy this recipe! Feel free to share your photos with me after you make them and contact me if you have any questions!
