Ingredients

  • 1

    tablespoon beeswax (available at most craft shops) or petroleum jelly

  • 1

    tablespoon almond oil (or jojoba oil or vitamin E - available at natural foods/health stores)

  • 8-15

    drops essential oil (available from most health food stores.)

  • 1

    container (preferably glass, ceramic or stone but plastic is acceptable)

  • 1

    straw (or similar object)

  • 1

    small glass jar or Pyrex bowl for mixing

  • 1

    saucepan

Directions

Measure out the wax and almond oil into the small glass jar or Pyrex bowl. Melt the wax. Put about an inch of water in a small saucepan, then rest the jar or bowl containing the wax in the water. Bring the water around it to a boil. The wax will melt gradually. Remove the wax from heat when the wax is 100% liquid. Stir in the essential oil with a thin stirring stick. A thin stirring stick. is used because the wax will start to form solid on whatever you do your stirring with — your goal should be to find something that has as little surface area as possible so you lose less of the end product, and also something disposable so you don't have to clean it off. Mix thoroughly. Pour the liquid wax into your final container. In about 30 minutes, it will be cooled, solid and ready to use. Will yield about one half ounce (by volume) of solid perfume.
