Ever wished you could make your own perfumes? This is a fantastic and fun recipe that uses all pure, natural ingredients – and will bring your inner perfumer to life! It’s so easy that you will wonder why you hadn’t done it before.

One of the fantastic things about solid perfumes is that they can easily be carried around wherever you go… to be applied easily and at leisure. You can use small jars, little silver tins or wooden boxes to put the solid perfume in – and then refill them when you run out! You can even wear your secret perfume in a locket or (I loved this) use the case of an old pocket watch – as in the pic.

Making solid perfumes is very rewarding. They make gorgeous gifts – especially if you source something unusual and beautiful to use as the container! Another thing to keep an eye out for when shopping the flea markets… and if you have design skills you can make attractive labels also.

Making Your Own Magical Blends

Where it gets really exciting is that you can create your very own unique “blend” by choosing your own favorite essential oils!

You will find that the aromas of some oils go well together, and others just seem… strange. Sometimes, the ones that work well together are some unexpected combinations – so you’ll have to dive in and experiment!

You can get some basic ideas as to what might work simply by opening the tops of two (or more) essential oils together and breathing the “mixed” fragrance. Also, you don’t have to use equal amounts of each oil: one or two drops of certain oils like citrus will give a “lift” to a perfume, without necessarily being immediately identified.

Other essential oils can add an “earthiness” to an aroma – sandalwood, cinnamon, vanilla. Ah, these are truly the secrets of the perfumer! There are many natural aromas considered aphrodisiac since ancient times – and these have found their way, secretly, into the seductive charms of the ladies of many centuries. What’s interesting is that these “aphrodisiac scents” – or derivatives of them – are also found in many of the world’s most famous perfumes.

The Recipe…

Our super-simple solid perfume recipe calls for only pure and natural ingredients:

100% pure beeswax
Jojoba oil
Essential oils

That’s it! You will need to be careful and focused (and have adult supervision if appropriate!), as preparation does involve the use of very hot / boiling water and hot wax. Here is the tutorial:

1. Measure 1 1/2 tsp of jojoba oil into a small glass or cup.

2. Add the essential oils to the jojoba and mix well. Use a total of 25 drops of essential oil – so for example:

7 drops frankincense
7 drops ylang-ylang
5 drops ginger
6 drops sweet orange


7 drops sandalwood
2 drops cedarwood
5 drops amber (if you can find real oil of amber!)
6 drops vanilla


7 drops jasmine
6 drops gardenia
6 drops neroli
4 drops costus / tuberose / rose
2 drops bergamot

Try these – or use your favorite essential oils. Please feel free to post your own recipes in the comments!

3. Melt 1 tsp of grated beeswax. It is important to use a “double boiler” when melting beeswax, with the inner pan being non-metal. This is because if the beeswax is just melted in a pan, it can very easily be ruined by the too-high temperature. Grating it first speeds up the process. Beeswax starts to get soft around 90ºF and melts at around 145-147ºF. (It starts to go brown at around 170ºF, so I read). One of those tiny non-metal pans is ideal, placed inside a larger pan of water. Heat the water in the bigger pan first, then place the “inner” pan holding the beeswax inside it (don’t get any water in the beeswax!) until the beeswax melts. If you can keep the temperature of the water around 150-160ºF – so that the beeswax is melted but the water is not yet boiling – you are doing well.

4. Add the jojoba / essential oil mix to the beeswax and stir well.

5. Remove from heat and pour into your container(s). Be very careful not to splash onto skin / eyes!

6. Allow to cool at least 15 minutes. You’re done! 🙂

Notes –

a. if you are making larger amounts, simply keep the ingredients in the right ratio i.e. “double everything”.

b. if the final product seems too soft or too hard, adjust the amount of beeswax (a little more beeswax in the recipe will make the end product harder).

c. if you desire a stronger scent, add a little more essential oil… don’t skimp on the jojoba though.


I’ve sourced all the ingredients for you on Amazon:

100% Organic Hand Poured Premium Quality, Cosmetic Grade, Triple Filtered Bees Wax

Desert Essence Organic Jojoba Oil 100% Pure 4oz

Essential oils (use organic, therapeutic grade for best results!) The ones I like are Eden’s Garden Organic Essential Oils range – they are getting rave reviews and are amazingly well priced. You can buy individual oils or boxed sets of various sizes.

    Quick question. Will these homemade essential oil/jojoba oil/beeswax perfumes be okay in small aluminum containers or would there be some sort of reaction? If so where can you buy small plastic containers?


  • By Barbara Peirce, August 16, 2013 @ 12:51 pm

    I am allergic to jojoba oil. Could any other carrier oil work?

  • By Barbara Peirce, August 16, 2013 @ 12:54 pm

    One more thing–be careful what kind of essential oils you use, as some, like bergamot or some of the citrus oils, may cause photosensitivity reactions if you place them on skin that will be exposed to sunlight.

    Love this! Where can you find the pocket watch locket?

  • By Jacki McChessney, November 1, 2013 @ 1:55 pm

    Why must the double broiler be non-metal but it can be stored in metal? Please and thank you!

  • By Francesca, November 1, 2013 @ 2:08 pm

    Hi, great post and I’d like to try making my own solid perfume.
    One question: does “tsp” mean teaspoon or tablespoon? I’m easily confused….

  • By admin, November 4, 2013 @ 12:50 am

    Yes it is teaspoon

  • By maria rodriguez, December 11, 2013 @ 2:20 am

    Great info!!

  • By Verona, December 27, 2013 @ 7:53 pm

    I would like to make one with coconut oil and have the scent coconut. How would I do this?
    Thank you! 🙂

  • By Crystal, December 27, 2013 @ 8:18 pm

    You need a non metal double boiler because beeswax does not melt well in metal, the container for storing can be metal because you are not heating the beeswax in it just storing.

  • By Crystal, December 27, 2013 @ 8:20 pm

    Also I would not recommend storing in plastic as essential oils can cause the toxic chemicals in plastic to seep out and into your concoctions, glass is usually preferable with EOs but I use metal as well.

  • By Carol, December 27, 2013 @ 8:23 pm

    This looks very cool & for once, it really is quite easy! This will be one of my first little projects for 2014! Thanks!

  • By Pamela Iaquinto, December 28, 2013 @ 5:00 pm

    Wonderful info. I wish I had found this before Christmas but now I have all year to perfect scents for my friends 🙂

  • By Michaela Harris, March 1, 2014 @ 4:18 pm

    So excited about this and how simple it is. My husband and I have been throwing away all products containing toxins from our house, but I am quite attached to perfumes. I am very scent oriented and I love essential oils. Can’t wait to experiment with my own combination!! yay!

  • By christopher, March 29, 2014 @ 3:48 pm

    I would quadruple the recipe and replace half the beeswax with raw cocoa butter. instead of jojoba oil I infuse frankincense tears and cinnamon sticks into olive oil in a double boiler. just a thick ceramic bowl in a saucepan with 2 inches of water, covered, gently simmering on low for an hour suffices. it makes a heavenly sweet oil. add vanilla, amber and sandalwood. oud or vetiver for some earthiness balances it out. add helicysm and call it immortelle.

  • By christopher, March 29, 2014 @ 3:57 pm

    (cover the bowl NOT the saucepan)

  • By Patricia, June 25, 2020 @ 12:33 pm

    How much beeswax did you use in the recipe?
