Now that you’re subscribe to your favorite products, what should you do with the empty compacts? Turn your old compacts into solid perfume!
What you’ll need?
-Sweet Almond Oil, or Jojoba Oil
-Fragrant Oils, we love Lavender and Rose Hips
-Empty compact container
Step One- Make sure your compacts are empty and cleaned out!
Step Two- Depending on how much you would like to make you can work on equal parts beeswax and carrier oil. We used 2 tbsp of beeswax and 2 tbsp of jojoba oil.
Step Three- Fill a pot with water and place a heat safe bowl or a smaller pot in the boiling water to melt the mixture. Keep heat on low/medium and slowly stir as the mixture melts. Once your mixture is melted, add the fragrant oils. Add about 15-20 drops of oils per 1 tbsp. You can add more or less depending on how strong you’d like your perfume to be.
Step Four- Finally, pour out your mixture into the empty compacts. After a couple hours the wax will harden.
Now you can take your compact on the go! We love keeping it in our purse for quick perfume touch ups.
