DIY | Solid Perfume Pocket Watch

20 Jul

I guess I’ll go ahead and kickstart the DIY project folder with a project I haven’t done yet. There are a lot of those, because, I confess: I love the IDEA more than the EXECUTION as far as DIYs go. I “started” my intended first DIY at least a week and a half ago, and see where that’s gotten me? Nowhere. So you know what? If I actually do one myself, I’ll post it! And if I read about a cool one, I’ll post it too! Sounds like a win-win, really.

          What you’ll need: 

  • 1 1/2 tsp. jojoba oil
  • 7 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 7 drops of ylang ylang essential oil
  • 5 drops fresh ginger essential oil
  • 6 drops wild sweet orange essential oil
  • heaping 1/2 tsp. grated beeswax
  • eyedroppers
  • small nonmetal pan for melting wax
  • shot glass or small cup
  • small compact or pillbox for finished perfume
What to do with it:

1. Pour jojoba oil into the shot glass. Add the drops of all four essential oils to the jojoba oil and stir.

2. Melt the heaping 1/2 teaspoon of beeswax.

3. Remove from heat and stir in the jojoba/perfume blend.

4. Reheat for just 10 seconds, stirring.

5. Immediately pour the mixture into your container.

6. Let cool undisturbed for 15 minutes.

…And you’re finished!
