  1. I think its because I actually drank dieting books several glasses
    of water. Where there are two alternatives for you to lose
    motivation and fail miserably halfway in following the plan.
    Dieting Books can cause slowed metabolism, increased weight over time, limited fried food,
    then that is half the battle. Gradually work your way
    up to exercising more which will reduce the risks of a surgery such as
    this before deciding that this is the course of a day.

    In fact nothing is necessary if you really
    want out of this and why people diet.

  4. Andrew Jackson

    Do you have a recipe (ratio of essential oils/beeswax and almond oil) to make “large batches”.? I’m wanting to make 10 one ounce containers at a time. Any help will be greatly appreciated

  5. Hallo I had orchid oil,wen in Berlin Germany,a very small bottle,you needed one drop it smelled great,can’t find it in USA,maby I make it soon,hm,very interesting

  6. Peggy

    Do you need a perfume license or some type of license to sell the solid or liquid perfumes? I would love to start a small business to help support myself and my kids.
    Please advise when you get a chance.

    Thank you

    • Rochelle

      Peggy, it would all depend on where you’re selling it at, farmer’s market, etc. I’m in MI and I know in WA if it contains alcohol in it you have to go through a liquor class & license to sell it. I have a friend that was making vanilla extract to sell among all the other items she was selling. I haven’t started selling anything yet, just seeing what people like via friends & family and other parents’ at my kids school. You’ll just have to look into your states process to sell homemade goods like a business license. I hope this has helped.

  7. Peggy

    do you need a business license to sell solid perfume? Tax EIN or something like this? I would like to create a small business with using solid perfumes.
    Plz advise when you get a chance.

    Thank you

  9. Geekella

    Can’t tell you how thankful I am to have found this. I made my first solid perfumes tonight with my Japanese cherry blossom, dark cherry, and gain scents. now I think i’ll go crazy and make many more. awesome

  10. Jenn

    I love this! Thanks for the instructions! I’ve been making my own fragrances for a while and didn’t know it was was so easy to make solid ones. Awesome. :)

  11. I’m making this into a spray perfume. Distilled water and essential oil!!! Easy peesy

  12. JACKYE

    Thanks. What means carrier oil?
    I am planning to do a solid perfume just using Lavender oil

    Thanks again,


  13. claire

    My absolute favorite scent is this white tea perfume I got as a gift a year ago. And seeing as I am almost out, and it is ridiculously expensive, I have been on the search for a perfume like it that won’t make my wallet cry. But I’m going to see if I can play around with this idea to make something like that amazing white tea perfume. Thanks for the idea!!

  14. Daize

    Oh my, this is really great!
    I’m so in love with the scent of GUCCI RUSH 2 perfume and I would like to make my own version of this using just pure natural oils but I don’t know which oils to buy. Anyone’s help would be much appreciated.

  15. valerie

    How do you bring it on on yourself?

  16. Hi Betty!! I wanted to say thank you for the tutorial! I also wanted to share my blend with you!! It’s slightly sweet, woodsy, and a little bit spicy!

    5 drops Night Blooming Jasmine
    5 drops Grapefruit
    5 drops Lavender
    5 drops Vetiver
    5 drops Cedarwood
    10 drops Rose
    10 drops Rosewood

    Thank you again! -Claire

  17. Jaya

    Hi CB, and All!

    Thank you so much for this post… I have blended essential oils for ages, as I make soap, but for some reason, (derrr!), I never thought to make scent for myself. I have drawers full of synthetic high-end scent that I never use. That comes from working in a pharmacy… and I don’t use most of their products!

    I softened my homemade non petroleum jelly, as per Jillee’s recipe over at ‘One Good Thing’, added essential oils and Voila! a jar full of yummy goodness. I used patchouli, juniper berry, lemongrass, peppermint and lavender. It’s just so me….. Thank You so Much!

    I really like very few ‘girly’ scents, and often use my husband’s colognes… there is a Bulgari one that is all herbs and clary sage that I love… I’ll have to try getting close to that one!

    Thanks again, CB!

    • Jill

      Hi Jaya…do you find making the soaps dangerous? Do you get your supplies at a major craft store…Im looking into it but dealing with lye is a big scary..any recommendations?

      • Curiouser and curiouser

        It’s about as scary as working with hot oil. Be as careful as when you’re frying something, and you’ll be fine.

  18. anna

    I just had a few essential oils on hand, but ones I love. I used the following ( there aren’t too many base notes, but some spicy middle to go with the subtle woody base):
    Top notes: 5 grapefruit, 5 tangerine, 3 lavender, 2 peppermint
    Middle: 4 nutmeg, 2 clove
    Base: 4 cedar

    Cedar is the only base note I have, but it sure does smell delicious! I just poured the wax/oil and the aroma made me want roll back and faint of heavenly loveliness.

  19. We have a online store that have ability to sale out all the type of electronically devices,Watches,health care products, Jewellery rings,and any type that you want yo sellout.We will help you for any deal.

  20. Susan

    I would just like to say that I am concerned with essential oils being used for “perfume”. Essential oils are to be studied and respected as to their special qualities.Many are not to be used by some folks at all.. ie peppermint by diabetics Most smell lovely but they do have medicinal properties and can have adverse affects.

    • Lulu

      Not too sure what to say here. Essential oils have been used to make perfumes for hundreds of years. Yes, some shouldn’t be used on your skin because they can irritate, e.g. cinnamon. But you make it sound dangerous! And some of their “special qualities” include aromatherapy use to affect mood. Peppermint is often suggested for use by diabetics in foot creams to promote circulation (the tingling sensation from peppermint also increases blood flow).

      Someone getting hold of a poisonous essential oil for perfume and eating it or something else crazy, well….there’s something to be said for ‘strengthening the gene pool’. Don’t use EO’s without research. Simple.

      • Susan

        Your last statement is all I was saying . I just am not comfortable with the use of medicinal oils used carelessly.

        • SarahG

          Using essential oils for creating perfume isn’t using them carelessly. Especially since the amount being used is so small. Now, what is careless, is INGESTING them without appropriate knowledge. But that is another topic.

          • nox_lumen

            I see both sides of this.

            Chances are that Christian Dior Hypnotic Poison contains SOME real essential oils as well as synthetics. Then again, at $50 or more per bottle it may be the real thing that you pay and arm and a leg for because some EO is outrageously expensive for being from a superior species for fragrance and grown in low quantity.

            There are also things sold as essential oils that turn out to be not quite natural. A look at packaging may give you a “blended fragrance with essential oil”. What was it blended with? will the company tell you? How was it extracted? Were scary chemicals used that may still be in it? Is it technically edible when diluted, or adulterated by the processing into oil?

            Then there is the herb itself. Roses naturally contain some cyanide. Now if you use them dried for tea, that means very little because there isn’t enough concentration to be scary. On the other hand, a rose essential oil or absolute may have enough that it needs serious care when handled undiluted.

            It’s like any other end of home made beauty products. Spending some quality time learning more about ingredients can help a ton to keep things safe.

    Need labels for twist up lip tubes

  22. Ashley

    Hello! I made the solid perfume and love the recipe. However, I found that the scent (the one in particular is Lavender) wears off very quickly, within a half hour. Is there any way to extend the life of the scent? Thanks!

    • cindy tessier

      your body absorbs the solid perfume quickly and i read a suggestion once that you can put it on the inside seam of your clothes (ie sleeve)and it will smell until you wash the garment. it could stain so you wouldn’t want to put it on a part that will show.

    • If you don’t want to put solid perfume on your clothes, you rub some into the ends of your hair on your head. Perfume is known to last much longer on hair than it is on skin. I massage solid perfume onto all of the ends of my strands of hair. The scent lasts noticeably longer than it does on my skin. Also, I don’t just put solid perfume on my wrists and/or neck. I put it on my wrists, neck, tips of hair, in between my breast, behind my knees and the inner part of my elbows :)

    • Lulu

      I’d suggest you read the link provided in the post about using essential oils. Lavender is a ‘top note’ used in mixing perfumes and will always fade quickly after being applied. Sorry to disappoint.

    • Stacy

      Also, Grapeseed oil actually makes essential oils take longer to evaporate compared to other oils. You could try using Grapeseed. Or make an oil-based roller perfume using it.

  23. Randa Black

    Thanyou so much for your lovely perfume ideas. I would like to blend one like Princess Dianas BLUEBEll.BY Pengallion or something like that. Any ideas?

  24. manda

    Hi – quick question, what type of containers do you use for these and do you have any suggestions for where to source them from?

    • Bella

      I make all my beauty and hygiene products and I recycle empty mint or lip balm tins, glass spice bottles and the occasional plastic mustard bottle (good for my moisturizing body wash), but I will be making solid perfumes and lotion bars as gifts so I found has all types of containers perfect for giving. I like the lip balm tubes for the solid perfume to keep in your pocket or purse. :D

  25. Yes! Finally someone writes about aromatous.

  26. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see
    if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83
    views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I’m open a small perform store I need help to buy a good product. Thanks

    • Venus

      What? You “open a small perform shop”? What is a perform shop? Seems to have nothing to do with this article, so sorry if no one helped. It looks like you’re opening a ‘gym’ type of business…this is about perfume, scents, E.O.’s, etc.

  28. Roseline pierre

    Help me to sell good perfume at my store its gone to be a small store.thanks

  30. Your mode of telling the whole thing in this post is really nice, every
    one be capable of simply understand it, Thanks a lot.

    • Lowdown&Dirty

      I’m very sensitive to scents and have an extreme dislike for most on the market, so I’ve been blending my own for years. Today I was making wax tarts and decided to see if I could create a solid perfume, so I added grapeseed oil after pouring most of the wax mixture into a silicone ice cube tray. I wasn’t sure about the oil-to-wax proportion (ha, I actually wasn’t sure I was even MAKING a solid perfume) so I appreciate this tutorial. Also, I didn’t have any handy containers so I poured mine into a rubber-sealed glass jar. The lip balm tube is genius! I don’t know why I didn’t think of it. Now I can just warm the mix up a little, pour it into the tube, and refill as needed. Brilliant! Thanks!

  31. Hello are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the
    blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own.

    Do you require any html coding expertise to
    make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

    • Hi MBE, you can tell that this is a self-hosted site because of the domain name “” If it were hosted by wordpress there would be a “” extension at the end. If you’re new, I suggest going with wordpress and learning the ropes of blogging before going with a self-hosted site. WordPress is very user friendly and offers lots of help for newbies to get started. Once you understand the process it should be pretty easy for you to transition to a self-hosted site if that will be better for your business. Hope this helps. :) Lorien

    • Hi MBE, after rereading your initial comment, I realized you were talking about the platform and not the host. It would appear that Crunchy Betty uses WordPress as her platform but is self-hosted. Have you started a blog yet? How is it going? :) Lorien

  32. joyce francis

    Thanks 4 d recept.
    I want to produce up to about 50 bottles of perfume. Can u please help me with the messurement?.
    Thanks and God bless

  33. Hi, its pleasant post regarding media print, we all be familiar with media is a enormous source
    of facts.

  34. Rhiannon

    This is great! :D
    I’d made an oil-based perfume once, but found that it left stains, boo. :(
    So I made a – rather messy – solid one. Admittedly no where near as neat as these ones but it smells good. :D
    My new signature scent: Rose otto, jasmine EO, Patchouli EO, Ylang-ylang EO and maybe a wee drop rose geranium. :D

    • That sounds yummy! Last night I made Vetiver, Juniper, Neroli, and Lime, and there was the tiniest smidge of rose from a ridiculously expensive blend of rose and vetiver EO that I got from Floracopeia last year. Mine turned out messy too, because I was trying to scrape the residual beeswax out of the pan and into the tin, but oh well, I figure it will get easier and neater as time goes on. :) Lorien

  35. Thank you for some other informative web site.
    Where else may I get that kind of information written in such an ideal approach?
    I’ve a challenge that I’m simply now operating
    on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such info.

  36. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she retains the image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.
    So that’s why this article is outstdanding. Thanks!

  37. bernard

    I am looking for a recipe on rose water solid perfumes. My wife loves CT&E rose water solid perfume. Unfortunately, it has discontinue. I would like to make one for her. But nnoticed that you use essential oil. So how do i get rose water into the beewax?

    • Hi Bernard, I would just get some pure rose essential oil and add some to the beeswax and carrier oil. Pure rose essential oil has a tendency to be quite expensive (like $100 for a dram), but your wife is worth it, right? :) Water and wax won’t mix, so if you try to put the rose water into the blend you’ll end up with wax floating on top of water, yuck. Go with the essential oil, and maybe you add some yummy scents, like neroli (orange blossom), sandalwood, vetiver, for example. But pure rose would also be beautiful. Hope this helps. Lorien

      • Bernard

        Thank you so much Lorien, don’t mind me asking if carrier oil carries any scent? Which carrier can i use with rose essential oil

  38. Deanne

    I made solid perfume tonight and it was very easy I am just a little worried because the base seems to hard. I followed the recipe you listed and I was just wondering if it is suppose to be hard or more oily??? Mine seem hard.

    • Hi Deanne, the beeswax cools and hardens, but as soon as you touch it, the warmth of your body will begin to melt it so that you can apply it to your pulse points as perfume. Hope this helps, Lorien

  39. Having read this I thoսght іt wɑs very enlightening. ӏ appreϲiate үou finding the time and effort tߋ put thiѕ short article together.
    I оnce aցain find myself personally spending a ѕignificant amount
    of time Ƅoth reading and leaving comments. But sօ
    what, it waѕ still worthwhile!

  40. THANK YOU! I made my first solid perfume last night as a going away present for a friend who is moving. Vetiver, Juniper, Neroli, and Lime. It was so fun to make, and I felt confident because your instructions and photographs were so clear. Thank you for taking the time to write this post. I plan on making lots more solid perfumes to bless all the scent-loving people in my life with, and I have you to thank for the inspiration! Thanks again! Lorien

  41. Jane

    I really love the lip balm tube idea. However I can’t imagine how you would get the melted mixture in there without spilling it everywhere! Can any of you who have done this please give any tips for getting the mixture in the lip tube instead of all over the counter? Thanks!

  42. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your blog.
    It appears like some of the text within your content
    are running off the screen. Can someone else
    please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This might
    be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

  43. I love your pendants and I made a bunch this weekend. They came out absolutely awesome! I’ve had so much interest in them. But I do have a concern…do they melt when you wear them? Or is the beeswax enough to keep that from happening? Thanks so much!

  44. Regina Fitzgerald

    Thank you so much for the recipe! I love perfumes and I’m excited to make my own solid. Just a question, where can I find beeswax?

  45. Sandie

    would love to make my own perfume and solid perfume, two of my favorite perfumes have always been Poison and Opium, any ideas what essential oils I would use to create anything close to these? Love your ideas, can’t wait to try some. Thank you.

  46. samantha

    Hi! i was wondering what size lib balm container you recommend using? 15ml or 30ml? larger?

    • Jess

      I plan on using 15ml, but I’m not sure how they will turn out yet…

      But that would take about 1tsp beeswax, 1tsp carrier oil, and about 20 drops essential oils. So we will see!

  47. Jess

    I’m thinking about making a salty chocolate scent. I’m wondering if I can find some really good, fresh sea salt and add it to the solid perfume as it is hardening to get a little kick in there of the salt. However – there is absolutely NOWHERE online that says anything about this.

    Any ideas?
