Choosing Your Flowers

First, pick some beautiful flowers. You can use roses, lavender, or jasmine. Make sure they smell nice and fresh. If you pick from a garden, do it early morning. This is when flowers have the most scent.

Step 1: Creating the Scented Oil

  1. First, separate the petals from the stem and leaves.
  2. Wash them gently to remove dirt and bugs.
  3. Pat the petals dry with a towel.
  4. Put the petals in a bowl and pour your carrier oil over them.
  5. Let the petals soak in the oil. This might take a few days.
  6. Every day, gently mix the petals and oil.
  7. After a few days, strain the petals out using cheesecloth.
  8. You now have scented oil.

Step 2: Melting the Beeswax

  1. Next, you need beeswax. Vegan wax works too.
  2. Put a pot with water on the stove to boil.
  3. On top of the pot, put a bowl with beeswax. This will melt it.
  4. Stir the wax gently as it melts.

Step 3: Mixing the Oil and Wax

  1. When the wax is liquid, mix in your scented oil.
  2. Add a few drops of essential oil if you want more scent.
  3. Stir everything well.

Step 4: Pouring Your Perfume

  1. Carefully pour the mixture into a small tin or container.
  2. Let it cool down and harden. This takes a few hours.
  3. Once solid, your perfume is ready!
