Summertime Revitalizing Solid Perfume
A Mountain Rose Herb Recipe
This combination of rosemary, lemon, eucalyptus and cinnamon leaf oils creates a balanced blend of aromas to bust stress and boost energy, concentration and mood. If you’d like to present this solid perfume as a gift, look around flea markets and in thrift stores for decorative lockets to use as vessels.
1 ½ cup organic sweet almond oil
1/2 cup organic grapeseed oil
½ cup beeswax pastilles
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
1 tsp vitamin E oil
Using a double boiler, gently heat the almond oil, grapeseed oil and beeswax pastilles until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in essential oils and vitamin E. Immediately pour into 1-ounce tins or lockets. Let cool 8-10 hours or overnight before capping. Store in a cool, dark place.
Note the use of cinnamon leaf essential oil in this formula and not cinnamon essential oil. That’s because the latter is a tad too potent to be applied to the skin. So, don’t be tempted to switch these oils out.
