Solid perfume is a definite must in my purse, especially when traveling. WHY? Solid perfumes don't spill & are super portable. Since they aren't alcohol-based, the scent can last longer & you can apply it specifically. For those looking for a more natural, green approach, solid perfumes fit the bill. I've used mine to moisturize my skin in a pinch and they've saved me many a time during stinky cab & subway rides! (Just put a little under your nose!)
I don't, however, like how most solid perfumes are presented--in metal tins. I don't like any lip gloss, balm, or perfume that I have to apply with my fingers--is that weird? Regardless, I decided to make my own. It's quick, inexpensive, and very easy.
TIME: 5 minutes
- Non-flavored tube of lip balm (Chapstick)
- Essential oil
- Spatula or spoon
4. Let the tube cool & harden for a few hours. Enjoy!
5. Optional: To differentiate Chapstick (lip balm) from your solid perfume, print and affix label below. Resize (if needed) label and print onto 1.625 x 1.8125 label paper.
PS--HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MAMA! I love you.
