There are IFRA Maximum Skin Exposure Levels for each Essential Oil and Fragrance Oil out there so that skin won't get irritated or injured. Just doing a "Sniff test" doesn't cut it as far as safety is concerned, especially if you'll be selling your products. The base of your product can only accept a certain percent of essential or fragrance oil as well in order to be able to function as the product that your trying to create. Look up product recipes, research fragrance levels, and buy from reputable supply companies.
If we don’t have jojoba oil then what can we use instead of that ?

What if I don't have beeswax (anyone can answer this lmao)
tess2626 (9 months ago)
You need beeswax..it's cheap and easy to find online.
Natasha Green (1 year ago)
a tip is if your using lavender not to use the type of lavender called Lavendula Augustifolia as its toxic to pregnant and breastfeeding mums, Children under 6yrs and the elderly - there bodies cant process the potent oil out of their bodies (see online at foundations of Aromatherapy) Also those on Antidepressants can't use Grapefruit Oil or any fragrance with thos in it as it counteracts with the serotonin levels in the brain. I'm an Aromatherapist and Enrolled Nurse.. I see alot of people on YouTube videos using lavender but don't mention this Important tip. iv owned my home based business now for 4yrs on facebook called Chillaxing Melts, Candles & Body Products I'm based in Australia but ship worldwide :)

can paraffin wax(food grade) be used instead of beeswax?
Fallon Moore (2 years ago)
I use glass jars when I use a double boiler to make lip balms,I've never had any problems,It might just depend on who you get the containers from
opalkitten jewels (1 year ago)
Fallon Moore it also helps if you dont just add your glass straight into already hot boiling water. it should heat up with the water so they are both at the same temp. i use glass only as well because ive heard(dont know for sure) that bowls made with certain metals can be toxic to heat ingredients in because the metals can be infused into whatever youre heating. im not 100% sure. just something i was told thru my life. suppose i will do some research after this.lol

Osca Alva (2 years ago)

Karina` Smith (2 years ago)
Thank you!...I will have a blast making all kinds of fragrances. Great video!
strlngbby57 (2 years ago)
can you add color and what would you recommend using? I've looked at the mica powders and liquids for makeup but not sure if these would work. they use them on soap so I figured it would be safe. I just don't want it to rub off and get colored skin.
Isobel Higgs (2 years ago)
Ooooh, that's how you pronounce jojoba...
Pauline Noel (2 years ago)
Can I use my regular perfume instead of the scented oils ?

Mizz Bella Kitty (2 years ago)
can i use a regular perfume instead of making one?
Pauline Noel (2 years ago)
I was wondering the same thing!
Jolene Merritt (2 years ago)
This could be a great idea to put in my old EOS lip balm containers. That way I can just rub it on. I think I will try this. Thanks
crizel malabrigo (2 years ago)
I'm having trouble finding the ingredients for the cream perfume especially the soy wax and bees wax that is commonly used in making cream perfume. Is candle wax can be also used in making cream perfume? Can I melt the candle and use it in making cream perfume? How is it? Please help 
Dhishma Grace (2 years ago)
will Vaseline jelly work instead of beeswax?? pls reply
e l e n a (2 years ago)
Not even a little bit.
Dhishma Grace (2 years ago)
anything instead of beeswax??
opalkitten jewels (1 year ago)
dogma71 emulsifying waxes aren't actually waxes and are used to emulsify oils and water together. i think you're thinking of soy wax?
Savannah Maslin (2 years ago)
Soy wax ☺️
dogma71 (2 years ago)
+Dhishma Grace Google Emulsifying Wax vegans use that.
Cindy Xu (2 years ago)
Can I use chapstick instead of beeswax?
Beauty Club (2 years ago)
Coco None (2 years ago)
can i use candles instead of bees wax???? reply plz
opalkitten jewels (1 year ago)
Coco None i wouldn't. unless you knew what all is in it. most waxes are totally fine, but some candles have ingredients that arent meant for topical applications.
CraftyCupcake (2 years ago)
u can
Anna Topp (2 years ago)
Can i use a candle instead of using all of this? I have a candle that smells great and would love to use it as a solid perfume.
화랑 (7 months ago)
if it is a 100% beeswax candel and 100% natural Essential Oils for the fragrance I can see why that would not hurt. Though a candel you get from walmart etc or BBand B etc probably not hte best as it is made of nasty shit lol
Trisha Escaravage (1 year ago)
Anna Topp How would that work though!?!
opalkitten jewels (1 year ago)
JasminM lol idky but, this made me laugh so hard just now. and my daughter looked at me all crazy.lol
akaperson (2 years ago)
as long as you mix another liquid because you can't just rub candle on you
CraftyCupcake (2 years ago)
u can
what else can i use in place of jojoba
KRIS2323 (15 days ago)
Avocado Oil & Grapeseed Oil work great too
CraftyCupcake (2 years ago)
olive, coconut, almond oil..
Madyson I Jones (2 years ago)
love that idea vivian
Sarah Galle (2 years ago)
Nice in concept, but their are no proportions at all, so.. fail..
Vegan gangsta (9 hours ago)
Maybe you need to take some classes if you don't know how to eyeball it... Fail
tess2626 (9 months ago)
Plus it's rude.
e l e n a (2 years ago)
This comment is nice in concept, but there is no proper grammar at all, so it's a fail.
Rachel Sweets (2 years ago)
Thank you beauty
Carolyn Ji (2 years ago)
Omg I tried this I mixed a little bit of peppermint oil and a little bit of lavender oil and it came out like a REALLY fresh floral scent IT IS AMAZING
Trisha Escaravage (1 year ago)
Carolyn Ji I wanna try this. I wonder how Eucalyptus and Rose would go together
Teresa Tormey (2 years ago)
I can imagine that smelling lovely! did it go on smoothly?
Lavender rose and vanilla these r literally the only essential oils I have lol
viviantangg_ (2 years ago)
why wont you use an eos lip balm and make the solid perfume in the empty eos container that way you don't have to use ur fingers?
Polished Ash (2 years ago)
+GLITERTASTIC oh that's brilliant. I was debating a chapstick tube as well.

Analiese Hogg (3 years ago)
It's the same girl
Abiola Ahmed (3 years ago)
I like this video
Ilona (3 years ago)
So if you don't add the beeswax you basically have normal perfume? And the beeswax is only for making it solid? 
CraftyCupcake (2 years ago)
Liyana Lidiya (3 years ago)
Could anyone give me idea cuz I want to replace the beeswax..please
Carmela Flores (2 years ago)

Joy scalzo-monticue (3 years ago)
I need some ideas which essential oils to mix
Zoe1223 (3 years ago)
Can I use coconut oil instead?
CraftyCupcake (2 years ago)
instead jojoba oil? yes
Satan (2 years ago)
+Zoe1223 no because coconut oil isn't as solid as beezwax, and will melt much quicker, as well as producing a stronger smell than the actual scent of the perfume.
Sophie Grannell (3 years ago)
can i use spray purfume instead of oils
Helpingyou GIRLZ (3 years ago)

leenoy shloush (4 years ago)
did someone do it ? is it a good idea ? what  essential oils did you use ? thanks :))
Ágnes Faludi (3 years ago)
I didn't do yet, but I will going to do them. I think this is one of the best ideas because it don't have any chemicals.... From essential oils...You should use 1 bottom 1 middle and 1 top note. The bottom note will stay on your skin longer. What I suggest check your favorite perfume's ingredients and after you know go to a store to smell them, than you can choose what you like. 
CBBEmily03 (4 years ago)
can i use coconut oil

Yea, has an awesome scent.

Carlazad (4 years ago)
U didn't say how many drops of EO or beeswax we should be using!!! I don't understand how come u took a lot of likes for this video.... I am not trying to be mean but seriously!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Khaled Alamiri (10 months ago)
Basic rules: 40% Beeswax ,40% butter ( I prefer coconut ) , and 20% EO ( you can increase up to 30%,, but reduce from the 40% ,, the total must be 100%) good luck
annabelle7123 (3 years ago)
she said it depends on the size of your container...
Kai Allison (4 years ago)
instead of using oils, can you use your favourite perfume?
Bujana Emini (20 days ago)

Elise Getson (3 years ago)
kat (4 years ago)
Probably, but it won't be as firm as Bees Wax.
jennytsak (4 years ago)
could we use an actual perfume or would it not work because they are alcohol based???
onelumiaamu (4 years ago)
Can you use other oils instead of jojoba oil (like coconut oil)?
Avriel (4 years ago)
Can you add your own perfume for the scent?
Ágnes Faludi (3 years ago)
Yes you can but maybe you will need to add more, because the essential oils are more concentrated.
Marissa Munoz (4 years ago)

definitely want to try this, been looking for a perfume for ages now and havent found one that suited me, now i can make my own!

Natasha Sandella (4 years ago)
I absolutely love this idea!! What other oils smell good and are good to use for this solid perfume? I'm not a huge fan of lavender lol
Kirbie Johnson (4 years ago)
Vanilla, citrus scents -- you can look up how to mix scents and that will give you some direction!
julliette24 (4 years ago)
Is there anything I can use besides beeswax? I really want to try this but I don't use animal products
HannahOfferdahl (4 years ago)
I don't think coconut oil would be a good idea. I've got a jar of coconut oil and in the summer it completely melts and becomes complete liquid 
Kirbie Johnson (4 years ago)
I've heard coconut oil is an alternative, but I worry that it won't solidify completely.

where can i get the bee wax?
Natalia Zili (4 years ago)
What about the warm days of the year?would it melt and ruin our bags or not!?!?
Kirbie Johnson (4 years ago)
Sara is right. The beeswax should be able to keep it as a solid as long as possible. 
sarapumpkinpie (4 years ago)
As long as you dont leave it in your hot car or something like that you should be okay. Every day running around shouldnt make it hot enough to melt. If you're unsure though, just use a container that seals tightly.
Sofia Safi (4 years ago)
can you use vaseline or those gel bees wax because I can't find to bar ones?
JUNO (4 years ago)
nobody got time fo dat

Evilstepqueen (4 years ago)
Great idea!! Although, I could see myself mixing up scents thinking they'd go together and really, they'd smell horrible hahaha. I really want to try this!!

a pyrex always works for me
Julie Doonan (4 years ago)
could you use perfume instead of essential oil if your friend has a favorite scent?
MissMSL91 (4 years ago)
This may be a stupid question but can you do this with your perfume instead of essential oils? 
Yumi 2412 (7 days ago)
I doubt that. But if you have a perfume oil version of your favourite perfume, you can use that.
tea teaser (3 years ago)
It's not a stupid question, it's called 'common sense.' 😉😏

What happened to jack?
Merel Skip (4 years ago)
You can actually use a glass bowl, as long as the hot water doesn't touch the bowl
Merel Skip (4 years ago)
Yes thats true
Kirbie Johnson (4 years ago)
True, but I'd rather everyone be safe than sorry!
Lucero Hernandez (4 years ago)
awsome :) cool idea
TheLizzylew (4 years ago)
I did this once and I put it in an empty chapstick container. so you apply it like you would chapstick, but on your wrist or neck!

+Sasha B Lol I was a messed up kid.

When I was little I found a solid perfume bar and it looked like lip balm so I out it in my lips.. My lips got so tight! And I could taste the floral smell and it also tasted chemically. :( Then I read the label and yeah..
