Making Solid Perfume Sticks

In the previous post, we explained how to make liquid perfume. This time, we will tell you how to make solid perfume.  Whether you're looking to set yourself apart with a unique scent or you're not so fond of the alcoholic undertones in most liquid perfumes, these instructions will show you how to create an inexpensive alternative.

Here is what you will need:

1 Tablespoon of beeswax
1 Tablespoon of carrier oil (Almond or Jojoba are good choices)
10-15 drops of essential or fragrance oil, according to personal preference
2 Standard lipbalm tubes

Measure oil and wax into a small glass dish. Place in microwave and heat at short intervals, watching it very closely, until it is just barely melted. Add fragrance and stir well with toothpick. Pour into lipbalm tubes. ( If the perfume thickens before you can pour it into your containers, just reheat. Carefully.) Allow to sit until fully cooled. Your perfume is ready to use!!!

For a lovely extra touch, you can add a small pinch of glitter to the melted oils.
