Have you ever wanted to create your own signature scent? DIY solid perfume is a perfect way to make your unique fragrance that is natural, chemical-free, and long-lasting.
Solid perfumes are made from natural ingredients like beeswax and carrier oils, making them an eco-friendly and sustainable option. Plus, you can customize your perfume to suit your personal preferences by selecting your favorite essential oils or creating your own blend. Here, we will use the oud and rose fragrance blend which will give the perfume a lovely scent.
We’ll guide you through the steps of making your DIY solid perfume that is natural and handmade. With just a few simple ingredients and tools, you can create a beautiful and personalized fragrance that will become your go-to scent.
- Sweet almond oil. You can also use jojoba oil, grapeseed oil or avocado oil. Just make sure the oil does not have a strong scent. The almond oil is perfect in this case as it has no smell.
- Bronze mica color powder
- Your choice of fragrance oil or essential oil
- Vegetable glycerin
- vitamin E
Tools I Use
- Plain lollipop stick for mixing
Unit of Measurement: gram
- 30 grams of sweet almond oil = 1.05 ounces
- 10 grams of beeswax = 0.35 ounces
- 10 grams of fragrance oil = 0.35 ounces (or 7g of essential oil = 0.25 ounces)
- 2 grams of glycerin = 0.07 ounces
- A pill of vitamin E
Steps: DIY Solid Perfume
Note: Make sure you use the exact measurements in your product. Otherwise, if you add more beeswax, the perfume will be too solid, and if you use more almond oil, it will be too soft.
- First, add 30 grams of sweet almond oil to the bowl
- Add 10 grams of beeswax
- Mix it well and heat the mixture using the bain-marie method, i.e hot water bath: a hot water bath is done by placing the bowl in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the bowl. As it melts, make sure to mix every now and then.
- Next, add a bit of the bronze mica color powder and mix well. You’ll start to notice your mixture transforming into a beautiful texture.
Note: Since this is a solid perfume, we can add mica color powder to it. For liquid perfumes, we cannot and we have to use oil color powder.
- Next, we will add the fragrance oil. We can only add it once the mix has cooled down a bit and we are able to hold the bowl comfortably. Otherwise the fragrance oil might evaporate.
Add 10 grams of your preferred fragrance oil and mix. If you wish to use an essential oil, add 7 grams.
- Add 2 grams of glycerin and mix well. The glycerin acts as perfume fixative which will make the scent last longer.
- Lastly, add vitamin E. Just cut a pill and squeeze the liquid out into the mix.
- After you have mixed it well, pour the mix into a container or box before it solidifies.
How To Use It
Rub your finger on the perfume, and apply it directly to the skin on the inside of your wrists, on your hands, or behind the ears!
