DIY Natural Perfume

april_3I used to shop at the large cosmetic stores, and their discount counterparts.  I was always amazed, and dismayed, at the endless selection of perfumes – and their prices.  One particular favorite of mine was sooooo expensive, that I used it so sparingly and asked for it only on the most special occasions.  What’s the point of that?

Fast-forward….I am older, ahem, I mean wiser, and in discovering the world of essential oils, I stumbled upon some amazing applications.  Now, as far as perfume goes, I prefer to eliminate chemicals from my fragrances, smell FABULOUS (not just sparingly or on special occasions), and not break the bank.  And that’s possible with the world’s best essential oils on hand!

This recipe is ridiculously quick, cheap, and easy.  And it allows you the freedom to blend whatever scents your heart (or your Sig-Os) desires!  In this particular recipe, you only need (3) ingredients and a few minutes (literally) of your time!

INGREDIENTS:

3 1/2 tablespoons of natural beeswax
5 tablespoons of organic coconut oil
30 drops (any combination YOU like) of essential oil (I like Stress Away & Lavender)

Here’s a quick video that lays it all out for you if you’re a more visual person.  But it’s super simple.  In a double-boiler, melt the beeswax.  Once melted, add the coconut oil.  Once combined, remove from heat and let cool for a minute.  Stir in drops of your favorite essential oil(s).  Pour into container(s) of your choice.  There you have it!

This is a great way to carry your favorite scents.  I’ll also let you in on a little secret – it makes a great lip balm too!  I love being able to quickly, affordably, and with the help of Mother Nature’s ingredients, make a personal care product that has a few uses.  This also makes a great gift too – especially if poured into a special keepsake for that special person.
