Lilac Solid Perfume Recipe


Heavenly scent of lilac in a solid form with optional decorative flowers.


1 part fractionated coconut oil
1 part bees wax or hydrogenated jojoba MP 56
Lilac fragrance oil (it is a good idea to have .5 oz for each ounce of fractionated coconut oil
Individual lilac flowers cut from the bunch--if possible go for organic, you don't want pesticides! (optional)


Put bees wax or hydrogenated jojoba and coconut oil into a non-reactive pan and heat on low until wax melts into the oil. Test the consistency by sticking a cold spoon into the mix. If it is too hard or soft when it cools on the spoon, add wax or oil. Stir and let cool until you can touch the mixture, but before it starts to harden. Stir in fragrance oil to desired strength. Stir again and pour into containers. If desired take lilac flowers and place them into the mix before it hardens over, they look the best when they are barely covered. I recommend using a toothpick or tweezers to place them. Another good way is to make a batch and fill the containers 2/3 full, let it harden, put the flowers on top and spoon another batch on top of them. This recipe can be used with other scents also.
