How to Make Luscious Cream Perfume

I couldn’t believe how easy it is to make this luxurious cream perfume. It is such a great gift idea, and so quick you can whip up a batch at the very last minute and still have it done in plenty of time!

We include two different formulas: one is bright and citrusy, and one spicily reminiscent of the Three Kings’ gifts. Both are completely divine.

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons grated beeswax
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
1-2 teaspoons pure essential oils

1. Melt beeswax in an enamel or glass pan over boiling water. Add sweet almond oil; combine. Be patient with this step; it’s important to blend them completely.

2. Allow the mixture to cool slightly before adding the oils of your choice (see formulas below).

3. Fill small clean, dry glass jars with the solid perfume.

Sunny Citrus Blend
1/2 teaspoon essential oil of sweet orange
1/2 teaspoon essential oil of lemon
1/2 teaspoon essential oil of bergamot

Three Kings Blend
1 teaspoon essential oil of frankincense
1/2 teaspoon essential oil of myrrh
1/4 teaspoon essential oil of sandalwood

Please be careful with applying the citrus oil perfume to exposed skin before venturing out into the sunlight - most citrus essential oils increase the skins photosensitivity - ie, they enhance your chances of burning in the sun. Some more than others - due to higher levels of furocoumarins.

I use the Olay Regenerist night cream, and I must tell you: its smells exactly as you described. I wonder of Olay is selling it in bulk for Target to private label. I think I'll buy and compare.

I wonder if I can use grain germs oil instead of almond oil.

For those of you looking for natural soy candles scented with essential oils, I hope you'll stop by God's Country Botanicals (www.godscountrybotanicals.com) and see my candles, perfumes, lotions, and other natural products. With cancer now surpassing heart disease as the leading cause of death in the US, it's time we stopped using all the cheap toxic products and went back to kinder, more natural products for ourselves and our children. Thanks for reading my post!
