I came across some lockets from a steampunk jewelry making collection at a craft store and I got the idea to make solid perfume with an all purpose balm recipe of mine. Since a little goes a long way reduced the recipe down to an amount suited for personal use.
.75 oz Coconut Oil
.125 oz Candelilla Wax
.075 oz Cocoa Butter
.625 Avocado Oil(or Sweet Almond, or jojoba, etc)
2 drops Vitamin E
Melt all ingredients together except the Vitamin E. Add that after everything else is melted and mixed and you’ve removed your mix from the heat. Then you can adapt from here to tailor it to be a hand or lip balm in this case I am making a solid perfume and a lip balm.
The Solid Perfume
Use the base recipe above, once everything is mixed together add the following.
2-3 .15cc scoops of Purple Mica
2 drops perfume oil (I used and Alice in Wonderland themed scent from Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs called Rocking-horse-fly)
Make sure you are using a locket that has been cleaned well and wiped down with alcohol. Be prepared with containers or other lockets for the excess you can use. seashells or bottle caps, be creative.
The Lip Balm
The base recipe is the same essentially. Doubled the recipe from above which filled the locket and 4 lip balm tubes. However I did replace sweet almond oil with avocado oil in the recipe. Everything for lip balm must be checked to see that it is lip safe.
For colorant, I used a lip safe shimmering Merlot Mica (I didn’t measure, just kept testing it on the back of a spoon as I added)
1-3 drops lips safe essential oil Use essential oils are very powerful so double check the safety for lip balm use and you wouldn’t want to add more than a few drops.
