Clean Living // Solid Perfume

Solid perfume is simple to make and perfect for on-the-go people like us. I'm going to toss this one in my purse and use it when I'm in a rush. Here's how it's done:

Supplies:
1 1/2 tbsp beeswax beads 
1 1/2  tbsp olive oil
about 40 drops essential oil


Fill the pan with 1/2 cup water. Place it on a burner, and turn the heat to medium. Put the beeswax beads in a glass bowl and place inside the pan. Once it's melted, mix in the olive oil. Let it continue to melt for five minutes. Next, remove the glass bowl from the pan, then very quickly, stir in the essential oil and pour it into the final container. Remember that the essential oil will smell very strong at first but will fade to softer scent once it's dried within the perfume.

To use your new solid perfume, rub it on the inside of your wrist for a fresh scent that will last all day!

  18. I am glad you enjoyed this. Infact, to digress a bit, I'm particularly happy to have visited the hometowns of Mandela, Sisilu and Biko all in the Eastern Cape and it seems to me as though there are many great leaders from this province. Anyway, I commend you for talking about Biko instead of the other 'big' names although I must say that Biko's has not faded out of South Africa's political history. He is studied in schools at various levels. I am doing a personal research on some of this leaders and would be posting some pictures on my blog too. Thanks for this review.
