Making A Natural Solid Perfume

What You Need:

Sweet Almond Oil (good source of vitamin e), soy- or bees-wax, 5-15 drops essential oil or flower petals.

What to Do:

Mix equal parts of sweet almond oil and soy/bees-wax (amount depends on how much you want to make) in a saucepan over low heat until the mixture is just melted. If you are using essential oils, remove from heat and add the desired amount and type (see below) of essential oil; if you are using petals, stir in the petals until all petals are submerged and then remove from heat. Rose petals or lavender blooms are two of my favorites. To store the perfume, use a recycled body cream/butter container, altoids or other mint tin, or you can purchase containers made for perfume. Makes a great gift idea!

Essential Oils to Try:

Floral: Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lavender

Fresh scent: Bergamot, grapefruit

Or try a combination of oils
