Solid Perfume Pots

Solid Perfume Pots

These perfume pots are great for little princesses and make for great gifts.

What you need

2 oz. Beeswax
3 oz. Shea Butter or Apricot Oil
4 oz. Olive Oil
up to 1 oz of fragrant or essential oil
Lip Balm containers or small Jars


If you can not get hold of shea butter, then substitute the 3 oz of Shea butter with 1 extra oz of beeswax and 2 oz of either a massage oil base like Apricot oil, or more of the Olive oil.

Start by melting the beeswax and shea butter down in a double boiler method. Once the beeswax is melted add all the oils together including the scent and stir through a sprinkle of glitter.

Now add the mixture to small lip balm pots or miniature jam jars. This recipe makes 9 0z of solid perfume.


  1. when looking for pots, maybe you could try little pill boxes, regular or decorative, or re-use little jars (like Carmex comes in, or Burts Bees tins)

  2. Sounds like an awesome project,however, I can’t find the containers anywheer. Ideas?

  3. how do you use these? do you just smell them? and can you change the apricot oil to almond oil? thanks

  4. hey guys! i am 11 yrs old and my best friend and i want to start a small business… can anyone give me some cheap, lovely and creative ideas to what we can sell?! thanks 🙂

  5. I use almond oil instead of olive, and add color with powder juice (no sugar).

  6. this is so cool im going to try it!oh and do you just rub it on?

  7. Could you please clarify one point?? If we use the shea butter, then we do not need the olive oil???
