February essences

Spring is coming and already on February I could start looking for my favorite flowers, violets.

My grandmother loved them and that’s why I think about her everytime I see them or smell them.

And I love their essences, that immediately bring me to childhood and warm days.

So when I decided to stop using perfumes I just bought a bottle of violet fragrance, without harmful additives, and the smell is just perfect, I really love it. (I bought this one )

I use to put some drops on my neck or wrists, you don’t need more.

Then I found the way to easily make solid perfume,and I am going to share here the recipe.

Is zero waste, and you can handy take your solid perfume with you to all your travels.

You’ll just need ingredients:

  • 1/2 tsbp beeswax beads
  • 1 tsbp olive oil
  • 1 tsbp coconut oil
  • 20 drops of essential oils (I used fragrance of violets)
  • Vit E

How-to:

  • place the coconut oil and the beeswax beads in the top of a double boiler and warm them over medium heat until they melt.
  • remove from the heat and then
  • mix the rest of ingredients,
  • put it on a small glass bottle and wait to solidify.

It’s really easy and you’ll avoid all the toxic ingredients that are usually added on perfumes. Hope you like it!
