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.
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 :)
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
I always use a glass bowl and never had a problem. Maybe it's because I put the glass bowl in before the water gets too hot so it's more gradual. Also, it's a very durable glass usually Mason jar type of thing.
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..
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
