DIY Solid Perfume Recipe

Sometimes, even my favorite, tried and true, designer perfumes can’t last the whole day. It’s unfortunate but true. So, this is a great way to have a refresher you can carry around to make sure you smell like something other than outside and sweat by the end of the day. Or to have a travel size version to carry around! We love this DIY solid perfume and hope you will, too! 

Not to mention: it’s super easy and only has 3 ingredients! 


1 tsp shea butter

1 tbsp soy wax

20-30 drops of fragrance or essential oil


Add shea butter and soy wax to a microwave or heat safe bowl/measuring cup. 

Heat in increments of 30 seconds until fully melted. 

Add fragrance oil and stir. 

Pour gently into a tin or container with a lid. Allow to set overnight or in the freezer for at least an hour before use.



Do not store in a warm or hot environment. If you’re keeping it in your purse, do not leave it in direct sunlight. 

To apply, simply add a little bit to your finger and add to pressure points like your neck or wrists. It will melt right in.
