Grapefruit Crush DIY Solid Perfume Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon


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
20 drops organic lemongrass essential oil
10 drops organic peppermint essential oil

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


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.
