Ingredients:

1 oz. 76° melt point coconut oil
.5 oz. ultra refined shea butter
.5 oz. refined sesame seed oil
.5 oz. grapeseed oil
.5 oz. organic blue agave nectar
1 teaspoon pink kaolin clay
1 Tablespoon white kaolin (cosmetic) clay
5.5 oz. white sugar
2 Tablespoon poppy seeds
3 grams/.1 oz. pink grapefruit fragrance oil (or 1.5 grams grapefruit essential oil)

Instructions:

Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out the shea butter into a medium glass pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave until melted, then weigh out the coconut oil and stir into the melted shea butter. Stir until the coconut oil melts completely, then weigh out the sesame seed oil, grape seed oil and agave nectar and stir into the melted shea butter and coconut oil. Now weigh out and add the fragrance and mix.

Using measuring spoons measure out the clays and poppy seeds into a separate container. (If you prefer your scrub not have color simply use all white kaolin clay.) Then weigh out the sugar and mix well with the clays and poppy seeds. Now combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended. Scoop into an 8 oz. container of your choice.

To use simply scoop out the desired amount and massage into skin in the shower, then rinse. Or keep it by the sink for use on hands.

Ingredients:

1 level teaspoon beeswax pastilles (or 1/2 tsp. carnauba wax)
1 level teaspoon organic jojoba oil (or other carrier oil)
40 drops organic grapefruit essential oil

How to Make Natural Solid Perfume for Gifts, Stocking Stuffers and Wedding Favors

Directions:

Melt your beeswax or carnauba wax in a glass container in the microwave. (Alternately you could also use palm kernel flakes.) Once melted, add your jojoba oil or carrier oil of your choice. If your perfume starts to solidify, simply heat for a few seconds more in the microwave. Next, using a Plastic Transfer Pipette add your essential oils to the perfume blend. (If you choose to use a fragrance oil instead, add up to double the amount of essential oils.) Stir well to mix evenly, then pour into your containers and label if you like.

You can keep your containers simple or go for something more complex. You can use lip balm pots or even lip balm tubes – both of which are perfect for storing solid perfumes. Alternately, you can fill a locket with your solid perfume for a more personalized gift.
