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.

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.)

Glitter Pumpkin Spice Body Butter Recipe

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. refined shea butter
1.5 oz. kokum butter
.25 oz. candelilla wax
1 oz. pumpkin seed oil
.3 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
.4 oz. biodegradable gold glitter
.05 oz. pumpkin spice fragrance oil
1/2 mL vitamin E oil (optional)

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to make my pumpkin spice body butter recipe as you’ll be weighing out all of the necessary ingredients with the exception of the vitamin E oil.

If you are planning to make more homemade bath and body recipes in the future, I highly recommend purchasing a Baker’s Math scale. Weighing ingredients is not only more accurate than using liquid measurements, but it also allows you to easily re-size a recipe by a percentage and figure the correct percentage of essential oils, fragrance oils and preservatives that you would need when changing a recipe or developing your own.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter, kokum butter and candelilla wax. Combine in a double boiler and heat over medium to medium-low heat until melted. Alternately, you can also combine your ingredients in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or a glass scientific beaker and heat in a microwave until melted at 40% power. (I’ve found that glass beakers come in super handy especially when making cream eyeshadows and lip balms!)

Once melted, remove from heat. Then weigh out the pumpkin seed oil and stir into the melted butters and wax. Follow with the fragrance oil and kaolin clay, weighing each ingredient first, then mixing into the body butter. Using a plastic graduated transfer pipette, measure out 1/2 mL (or about 10 drops) of the vitamin E oil and mix in.

Finally, weigh out the glitter. (I used eco-friendly biodegradable glitter from The Sparkle Party.) Use .4 oz. of glitter for a bold look or half the amount for a more subtle appearance. (Alternately, if glitter isn’t your thing, you can simply omit it entirely.) Whisk the glitter into the body butter mixture with a fork until well combined.

As the body butter starts to thicken, remix, then spoon into an eco-friendly 4 oz. brown paperboard jar with a lid. (You can find these recyclable, renewable and biodegradable brown paperboard containers at SKS Bottle & Packaging in a variety of sizes.)

Vegan Friendly DIY Pumpkin Spice Body Butter! This golden glitter pumpkin spice body butter recipe will have everyone raving about how amazing you smell! A must have for seasonal holiday parties, not only does this moisturizing pumpkin spice body butter smell just like everyone's favorite pumpkin pie, but it also makes skin pop with glitzy eco-friendly glitter!

Once your pumpkin spice body butter fully solidifies, cap and label your container as desired for personal use or gifting. Washi tape and scrapbooking/planner stickers are a simple and easy way to add a bit of pizazz to your jars.

If you want to recreate my pumpkin spice body butter recipe to sell, you’ll need to follow good manufacturing practices (GMP) when making your product. You’ll find that the book, Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters by Marie Gale, is a valuable resource if you’re just getting started making your own homemade soaps, skin care products and cosmetics.

In addition to GMP, you’ll also need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your products. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English by Marie Gale, spells out everything you need to know to legally label your products.

Ingredients:

.1 oz. / 3 grams cera bellina wax

.05 oz. / 1 gram castor oil

Using a digital scale, weigh out the cera bellina wax, oat butter and rose wax into a small glass beaker. Heat in the microwave at 40% power until all the ingredients have melted. (If you don’t have or want to use oat butter, you may substitute this ingredient with another hydrogenated butter.)

Next, weigh out and stir in the shea nut oil and castor oil. If product solidifies, gently reheat the ingredients until once again melted.

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out the pink lemonade flavor oil and stir into the melted waxes, butter and oils.

No one wants to douse themselves in heavy, greasy feeling oils, especially in summer. So I formulated my mermaid shimmer body spray as a dry oil body spray. It sprays on and absorbs quickly so there’s greasy after feel. What’s left behind is soft, shimmering skin and a lovely fragrance!

Even better, this mermaid shimmer body spray is super easy to make. Just weigh, measure and mix the ingredients. Your final product is then ready in under ten minutes!

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.

Once combined, use a funnel to fill one 4 oz. bottle with a mist sprayer. (I used the 4 oz. Frosted PET Cosmo Round Bottles with White Fine Mist Sprayers and Brushed Aluminum Collars from SKS Bottle & Packaging found here.)

Screw on the sprayer then label your bottle as desired for personal use or gifting. (I made a sticker for mine by printing mermaid cat clipart from LePetite Market onto sticker paper.)

If you’d rather make my mermaid shimmer body spray recipe to sell, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

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