Steps: DIY Creamy Perfume with Musk
We are going to make 100 grams (3.52 oz) of the creamy perfume.
1- Start by cutting a 2-gram (0.070 oz) piece from the musk cube.
2- Using a fine grater, shred the musk piece into a bowl.
3- Add 10 grams (0.35 oz) of lavender carrier oil.
4- Mix the 2 ingredients.
5- Place the bowl in a hot water bath to melt the musk. It should take one minute to melt the musk while stirring. Don’t let the contents get too hot. Remove the bowl from the hot bath, and let it cool down.
6- In a second bowl, add 100 grams (3.52 oz) of the cream base.
7- After the mix of the lavender oil and musk has cooled down, with the tip of a wooden popsicle, add a little of mica color powder. Here, I chose gold mica with bronze mica. You can choose any one color you like, or use a blend of two mica colors like I did.
8- Mix the color powder thoroughly with the lavender oil and musk.
9- Pour the colored mixture of the lavender oil, musk, and mica color over the cream base.
10- Mix thoroughly the ingredients.
11- Add 3 grams (0.10 oz) of musk essential oil.
12- Mix again very well. It is better now to use a whisk.
13- Add 1 gram (0.035 oz) of vegetable glycerine.
14- Add 1 gram (0.035 oz) of aloe vera gel.
15- Using the whisk, give the ingredients a final, thorough mix.
16- Scoop the DIY Creamy Perfume with Musk into a glass container and seal it.
17- You’re done! Store it in a cabinet, away from sunlight, for 3 days. Then, you can start using it.
