  • 1 tablespoon of dehydrated marigold
  • 20 drops of tea tree oil

Note: You can choose the other herbs, dehydrated flowers, and essential oils for the composition of this perfume. Essential oils oxidize in contact with light, so it is recommended to keep the perfume stored in a jar of amber or other dark glass.

MATERIALS TO BE USED

  • 10 to 15 ml cosmetic pots
  • water bath pan and utensils
  • toothpick

Note: You can make this perfume with other essential oils of your choice. In the absence of carnauba wax, you can use one of these options: soy wax, candelilla wax, cocoa butter, or shea butter. The suggestion of carnauba wax is because it gives the ideal consistency and aroma to the solid perfume.

Shelf life

Stored at room temperature, lasts on average 6 months, do not forget to write down the date you made the perfume.

INSTRUCTIONS

In a water bath pan, heat the wax and oils in their separate container on low heat. With the help of a toothpick, mix them well in another container. Transfer the contents to a dark glass or amber jar. Your natural home made perfume is ready.
