Homemade Solid Perfume Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.2 oz. beeswax
.5 oz. sweet almond oil
up to .25 oz. fragrance oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the beeswax into a double boiler or a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the double boiler until melted or in the microwave at 50% power until melted. Remove from heat.

Once the beeswax has melted, weigh out the sweet almond oil. Stir into the melted beeswax. If the mixture begins to solidify – which can happen if the oil is cold – heat again slightly. (If you prefer not to use sweet almond oil or don’t have sweet almond oil on hand, you can substitute with any other low odor carrier oil that is liquid at room temperature.)

Now weigh out the fragrance and stir into the melted beeswax and oil mixture. (This homemade solid perfume recipe calls for the fragrance oil at 35% of the total beeswax and oil weight. Not all fragrance oils can be used up to 35% and be skin safe so you’ll want to check the manufacturer guidelines via the supplier you choose and adjust the amount of fragrance oil used appropriately. I chose a fragrance oil that was skin safe at up to 38% usage rate for perfume. However some fragrance oils are only safe up to 8% or less even in perfumes. Follow the same guidelines if you prefer to use natural essential oils.)

Now pour the melted mixture for this solid perfume recipe into lip balm containers. I used .3 oz. eco-friendly brown paperboard push up lip balm tubes from SKS Bottle & Packaging for my homemade solid perfumes. This particular homemade solid perfume recipe will fill three of these tubes. Alternately you can also use regular plastic lip balm tubes.

Allow your homemade solid perfumes to harden completely, then cap and label or decorate your solid perfume tubes as desired.

I used free washi tape clipart to decorate my tubes along with a hand drawn herbal tea clipart set I purchased from Mellenes Digital Art on Etsy. I simply imported the images into OpenOffice and arranged the graphics I wanted to use onto a blank text document, then printed the page onto a full size label/sticker sheet. (You can learn more about how to do this in my post on how to make homemade chocolate orange body butter here.)

Alternately you can also make this homemade solid perfume recipe in lip balm pots. (Pictured here are 1/2 ounce brown paperboard jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging.) For easier application using lip balm pots, you can reduce the amount of beeswax used to .15 oz.

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.



DIY Cologne for Men - Tempestuous Cologne Recipe - Easy Homemade Gift Idea for Men - Also Make Great DIY Wedding Favors for the GuysThere’s a cologne fragrance for men called Fierce that’s distributed via Abercrombie & Fitch. However, in light of their recent negative press, you might be wary about making future purchases from them. Regardless of your stance, their cologne, Fierce, is still a great fragrance for men. But you don’t have to buy it because now you can actually DIY it. Very recently a dupe of this Abercrombie fragrance was developed as a fragrance oil. So not only can you now make your own handmade colognes for men with this great scent, you can also use the fragrance oil to produce other men’s products with this fragrance including homemade soaps, lotions and other masculine skin care products.

Following is a recipe for making your own Fierce-like cologne using a fragrance oil dupe created by Nature’s Garden called Ferocious Beast. Of course, I came up with my own name for this fragrance as well and dubbed mine Tempestuous. You can call yours whatever you like. But if you dig the name Tempestuous, I have created free printable labels for you to use on your own cologne oils you create with this recipe.

Nature Garden’s Ferocious Beast fragrance oil contains citrusy top-notes of orange, lemon and lime, leading to middle notes of rosemary, jasmine, lily of the valley, vetiver  and rose and finishing a woody, oakmoss and white musk base note. Create these as diy wedding favors or homemade stocking stuffer gifts for the guys.

Other fragrances for men you may be interested in trying include The Perfect Man, Game On, and Bay Rum. (Buy any 5 16oz. fragrance oils and receive a $1 off per container from Nature’s Garden.)
