Revitalizing Solid Perfume
Balm Base Recipe
1 ½ cup organic Almond oil
1 tsp Vitamin E oil
½ cup beeswax pastilles
Revitalizing Solid Perfume Aroma Blend
60 drops organic Lemon essential oil
25 drops organic Eucalyptus essential oil
22 drops organic Cinnamon Leaf essential oil
22 drops organic Rosemary essential oil
*Cinnamon Bark essential oil is very strong and may cause irritation if using on the skin. I went with Cinnamon Leaf essential oil to avoid potential irritation. All essential oils are highly concentrated, so please use and craft with care!
- In a double boiler (Pyrex is easiest), melt the beeswax pastilles into your carrier oil mix.
- Once completely melted, remove from heat and add Essential Oils and Vitamin E Oil
- Stir and pour into 1 oz containers. You can also find beautiful lockets at thrift stores to use instead of tins. These make sweet gifts and are fun to wear!
- Allow to cool on a safe shelf, away from pets and children.
Cinnamon: The smell of cinnamon invigorates the senses, relaxes tension, and calms nerves. For this recipe, using Cinnamon leaf oil is important, as cinnamon bark oil can cause irritation to the skin.
Eucalyptus: Known for increasing energy and balancing emotions, good for soothing away stress.
Lemon: An uplifting citrus scent! Lemon is balancing and is helpful for making clear decisions and for emotional purging.
Rosemary: Stimulates memory, confidence, perception, and creativity. Helpful for balancing mind and body. Uplifts the mood and helps you remember good dreams!
