I love wearing perfume and enjoy a variety of different types of scents. I generally apply it in the morning when I’m getting ready for the day. I like to refresh it throughout the day because the scent rarely lasts all day for me. I don’t really want to carry a bottle of perfume in my handbag. That could result in a huge mess if it ever leaked or spilled. The solution for me was to learn how to make solid perfume.
How to Make Solid Perfume
I love solid perfume because I can toss it in my bag or leave it on my desk and use it whenever I need to. The problem is that not all of my favorite designer scents are available in solid form. Lately I have been in love with my BVLGARI au the vert perfume but I have not been able to find it in solid form anywhere. Now that I know how to make solid perfume, I can create my own.
If you want to make these as gifts, you can double or triple the amounts. I prefer to make one at a time since I make them for myself. They would make a great Mother’s Day gift or they’d work for wedding favors. While I chose to use my favorite designer scent, you can easily use an essential oil like (affiliate) jasmine or (affiliate) honeysuckle if you want to stick with natural. You will also need beeswax and a carrier oil for your solid perfume. I used (affiliate) Wonder Oil as my carrier oil because it’s what I have on hand I love how easy it is to use.
- (affiliate) Organic Beeswax Pastilles
- Essential oils or your favorite designer perfume
- Wonder Oil or another carrier oil
- Little container with a lid to hold your perfume
- Place a tablespoon of Organic Beeswax Pastilles in a small glass bowl.
- Place the bowl in the top of a double boiler and bring the water to a boil. Stir the beeswax gently with a wooden craft stick until it’s melted.
- Remove it from the heat.
- Stir in 1 tablespoon of your Wonder Oil.
- Stir in about 8-10 drops of your fragrance. How much it takes depends on how strong your fragrance is and how strong you like your perfume. Experiment.
- Pour it into a little container with a lid and let it sit until it turns solid.
You can make as many or as few of these as you would like. Vary the containers depending on the type of scent you’re making and who you are giving it to.
