Prepare to embark on a fragrant journey as we delve into the world of DIY Creamy Perfume with Lavender and Musk. In the realm of bridal beauty, a personalized scent can be the ultimate accessory, enhancing not only your allure but also your confidence.

With a touch of creativity and a few simple ingredients, you can craft a sensual bridal scent that’s uniquely yours. Join us as we guide you through the steps to create a fragrant masterpiece that will leave an indelible impression on your special day.

Ingredients Needed

  • Musk cube
  • Odorless beeswax pellets
  • Lavender carrier oil. You can buy it pre-made, or better yet make it yourself at home as per our article.
  • Lavender Fragrance oil
  • Rose fragrance oil
  • Mica color powder. Use white color since we are making a bridal scent.

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Scale to weigh quantities
  • Bowl
  • Small silicone or wooden spatula
  • Wooden popsicle stick
  • An attractive glass container to store the DIY Creamy Perfume with Lavender and Musk, keeping in mind it is intended to be used by a bride.

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

Steps: DIY Creamy Perfume with Lavender and Musk

1- Start by cutting a musk cube into pieces, or by grating it.

5- Gently heat and melt the ingredients in a bain-marie (hot water bath). A bain-marie is made by placing the bowl in a larger pot of hot, steaming water. This will gradually heat and melt the contents. Make sure to stir while the mixture is melting.

8- Allow the mixture to cool down slightly. This step is crucial before adding the fragrance oils, as excessive heat can cause the oils to evaporate. To check if it has cooled sufficiently, simply hold the bowl in your hands. When it feels comfortable to hold, it’s the right temperature to add the fragrance oils.

9- You can add a total of 6-9 grams (0.21-0.31 oz) of fragrance oils to the quantity of musk, lavender carrier oil, and beeswax used. Adjust the amount based on your preference for scent strength, but stay within this range.

  • Add 4 grams (0.14 oz) of lavender fragrance oil.
  • Add 4 grams (0.14 oz) of rose fragrance oil.
