DIY Glitter Perfume

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

3-4 scoops bio glitter in color(s) of choice
6 grams clear jojoba oil (or fractionated coconut oil)
1 gram skin safe fragrance oil* of choice

Instructions:

It’s important to note that different fragrance oils have different usage guidelines based on maximum safe skin exposure. Some fragrances, such as pumpkin spice, are only safe for skin when used at 3.3% of the recipe for perfumes. Others, like jackfruit & kiwi, are safe up to 43.8% of your perfume recipe.

The amount called for in the perfume recipe above assumes that the fragrance oil you’ve chosen is safe at up to a 14.2% usage rate* for perfume. (I’ll give you some recipes for using other fragrance oils further down as well as tell you how to figure out how much fragrance you need for fragrances oils with a lower skin safe usage rate.)

For accuracy you will need a digital scale to weigh the jojoba oil and fragrance oil. You will also need a 10 mL glass roll on bottle for each DIY glitter perfume you plan to make. I obtained my bottles in bulk from SKS Bottle & Packaging.

Begin by adding three to four .15cc scoops of glitter to an empty 10 mL bottle.

Then place the bottle on the scale. Tare and set the unit to grams. Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, add 6 grams of jojoba oil to the bottle. Then tare your scale again, and using a fresh pipette, add 1 gram of fragrance oil. This should fill up your bottle.

Now snap the housing and stainless steel roller ball onto the bottle and screw on the cap. Shake well to mix.

To use, simply roll onto wrists, behind ears and other pulse points as desired. And don’t forget to shake the bottle whenever you like for a fun snow globe effect!

If desired you can also decorate our perfume bottles with washi tape and stickers like I did.

Some of my favorite fragrance oils that can be used according to the recipe above are jackfruit & kiwi, citrus blossoms & heliotrope and cyclamen & citron.

Want to use a different fragrance oil?

You should be able to find out from your supplier what the recommended usage rate is for the fragrance oil you’ve chosen. Once you have that amount, multiply the amount of jojoba oil by that percentage to figure out how much fragrance to use. For example, if the maximum skin safe usage rate for perfume is 8.5% you would multiply 6 grams by .085. This gives you .51 grams. So you would adjust the fragrance oil in the recipe to .5 grams or less.

If your scale isn’t sensitive enough to weigh out a half of a gram, then you can make two perfumes at once. Simply fill each bottle with the desired amount of glitter, then mix double the amount of jojoba oil (6 grams) and double the amount of fragrance oil (1 gram) in a small beaker. Then carefully fill each bottle with equal parts of your perfume mixture using either the beaker spout (assuming your hand is steadier than mine!) or a pipette.

Take the Brave Pretty Challenge.

Want to make pumpkin spice perfume? Pumpkin spice fragrance oil has a much lower skin safe usage rate for perfume. It’s only 3.3%. So I recommend making six of these at once. You’ll need 36 grams of jojoba oil and 1 gram of pumpkin spice fragrance oil. (I used gold bio glitter for my pumpkin spice DIY glitter perfume.) Combine in a beaker, mix well, then evenly distribute between the six bottles. (Alternately you can also buy pre-made pumpkin spice perfume!)

To create a candy crush DIY glitter perfume, I used unicorn bio glitter, 18 grams of jojoba oil and 2 grams of candy crush fragrance oil to make three roll on perfume bottles. See how that works? Easy peasy! (You can also use a percentage calculator if you need more help.)

Ingredients:

8 oz. baking soda
5 oz. citric acid
8 oz. SLSA
.2 oz. white kaolin (cosmetic) clay
.3 oz. xanthan gum powder
2.5 oz. refined shea butter
1 oz. kokum butter
1 oz. vegetable glycerin
.3 oz. safflower oil
.3 oz. Candy Crush fragrance oil

You will need a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients for my moon cake bubble bar recipe, minus the mica powder and glitter. You will also need a moon cake mold of your choice.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter and kokum butter into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or a glass bowl.

Heat the butters in the microwave at 40% until almost fully melted. Then remove and stir until the rest of the kokum butter melts fully.

Next, weigh out the glycerin and safflower oil and stir into the melted butters. Set aside to cool down.

In a separate large 8-cup glass Pyrex measuring cup or large glass bowl, weigh out the combine the baking soda, citric acid, SLSA, kaolin clay and xanthan gum powder. (I highly recommend wearing a face protection mask for this step.)

Using a teaspoon measuring spoon, measure out one teaspoon of pink mica powder and add to the bowl of dry ingredients. Use a fork to combine the dry ingredients together, mixing well to ensure that all of the dry ingredients are evenly incorporated throughout. Set aside.

Now prepare your workspace for creating your moon cake bubble bars. Lay a piece of parchment paper onto a cutting board or cookie sheet. Choose the pattern you’d like to use for your moon cake mold and insert it into the press. Then add some glitter to a small bowl or plate.

Once your wet ingredients have cooled, but not started to solidify, weigh out the stir in the fragrance oil.

Now slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing as you go, until the dry ingredients are evenly coated. Dust the inside of your moon cake mold with some of the glitter. Then take a scoop of the bubble bar mix and press one side into the glitter.

Fill the mooncake mold with the bubble bar dough, inserting the glitter side first until it’s filled. Remove any excess dough from the mold, then press out the bubble bar onto your covered work surface.

Working quickly, repeat this process until you’ve made all nine bubble bars. Then pop your bubble bars in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to quickly cool them off and to help the kokum butter solidify.

Cleopatra’s Golden Glowtion Shimmer Oil Recipe

Get glitzy with Cleopatra’s golden glowtion shimmer oil! Cleopatra’s golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe creates a dry body oil loaded with lots of golden light reflecting mica. Spray it on and massage in for highlights and an all over golden glow that helps to hide skin’s subtle imperfections and give the appearance of a more even skin tone!

Cleopatra's golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe creates a dry body oil loaded with lots of golden light reflecting mica. Spray it on and massage in for highlights and an all over golden glow that helps to hide skin's subtle imperfections and give the appearance of a more even skin tone!

My friend, Cathy, inspired me to make this golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe after seeing my mermaid shimmer spray. However, she was a looking for a much bolder shimmer and a simpler recipe to recreate. Therefore, I kept the ingredients for my Cleopatra’s golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe extremely simple but added a lot more mica.

For those of you who aren’t destroying your kitchen on a regular basis like the rest of us, this easy 4-ingredient recipe will also help to make the startup costs for this project a lot more affordable.

However, if you prefer the dry oil recipe I used for my mermaid shimmer spray, you can use that one instead. Just be sure to either double that recipe or halve the amount of mica. (The mermaid shimmer spray recipe yields one 4 oz. container while this one yields two.)

The mica for this golden glowtion shimmer oil does settle when not in use. So be prepared for that. I wanted to avoid using emulsifiers and other more complicated ingredients simply for the sake of keeping the mica suspended in the product. I found that a light dry oil works fine for this application. You just need to shake the golden glowtion vigorously before each use for consistency.

The gold shimmer is dazzling when sprayed onto skin and massaged in. Cathy used it on her skin and ended up with something akin of a light shimmering tan. (She and I are both super pale.) However, I’m sure it would be just as stunning on dark skin as well!

We also chose a lip and eye safe gold sparkle mica for this project so you can use it anywhere your heart desires. I hope you have fun with this recipe!

Now weigh out the add the mica. Mix vigorously until the mica is thoroughly combined throughout the oil and there are no more clumps.

To use, vigorously shake the bottle to evenly remix the ingredients (the mica will settle) then spray onto skin and massage in.

Mermaid Shimmer Body Spray Recipe

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

.5 oz. rosehip seed oil
1 oz. clear jojoba oil
1.25 oz. fractionated coconut oil
1 oz. apricot kernel oil
.1 oz. skin safe fragrance oil
2 mL vitamin E oil (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cellini blue mica powder (or similar)
4 teaspoons super pearly white mica powder

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale and a set of measuring spoons for my mermaid shimmer body spray recipe. You’ll also need a graduated plastic transfer pipette to measure out the vitamin E oil.

Mermaid Shimmer Body Spray Recipe! This gorgeous mermaid shimmer body spray recipe leaves a touch of light reflecting, mica shimmer on skin so anyone feel like a mermaid for a day! Customize the recipe further with your own favorite scent. You can even use it in your hair!

Begin by weighing out the rosehip seed oil, jojoba  oil, fractionated coconut oil and apricot kernel oil. Combine in a glass beaker or a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Stir to combine.

Now weigh out your fragrance oil of choice and mix into the container of oils. I used a Citrus Blossoms & Heliotrope fragrance oil for my mermaid shimmer body spray recipe.

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out the vitamin E oil and stir in. (Learn more about vitamin E oil and its use in DIY skin care here.)

Next, using a teaspoon measurement, measure out the micas and add to the oils. Stir vigorously until the mica is fully incorporated into the dry body oil base. There shouldn’t be any clumps and the color should be uniform throughout.

Note: Swap out the cellini blue mica for another color to customize the final color of your mermaid shimmer body spray! And don’t worry. This color won’t translate onto your skin.

Tip: If you’d also like to include glitter in your mermaid shimmer body spray, you can add glitter as well. However, you’ll need a very fine glitter that is .004″ in size so it doesn’t clog the sprayer.
