The great thing about using pure essential oils to make a solid perfume is that you can create something that smells beautiful and also has therapeutic properties! 

This means you can get really creative in blending oils to promote certain moods and emotions. Try this zesty citrus solid perfume blend. Not only will you smell fresh and fruity but the energising oils may also help you to get up and going in the mornings or be on top form for an evening out. It’s 2 in 1 -  a sweetly beguiling and refreshing scent that can also awaken the senses and stimulate the mind! 

You'll need:

  • 4 tablespoons of beeswax pellets
  • 4 tablespoons of carrier oil
  • 30 drops of Lavender
  • 30 drops of Rosemary 
  • 35 drops of Lemon 
  • 20 drops of Grapefruit
  • Empty jars or moulds for the finished product. 

To make things easier you can blend the essential oils together in a bottle before you start making the perfume. 

Place the beeswax pellets in a bowl and suspend over a pan of simmering water. Stir gently and melt slowly. Once melted, add the carrier oil and ensure it’s fully mixed in. Then add the essential oil blend and mix well. Pour into the containers and allow to set for 1-2 hours. That's it!
