DIY Solid Perfume | Turn spray into solid
How to Turn Body Spray Into Solid Perfume
1/2 tsp beeswax, candelilla wax, or carnauba wax
2 tsp petroleum jelly
Up to 3 tsp of perfume/body spray of choice (depending on how strong you'd like your solid perfume)
4 tsp carrier oil (for perfume oil)
Gather your ingredients.
Place all ingredients except for body spray/perfume in a glass bowl, dish, jar, or cup.Create a double boiler or if you already have one, use it! (You can leave out the glass dish if you are using a real double boiler) Create one by heating a saucepan of water and placing your glass container in the water until wax and Vaseline have melted. After they have melted give it a stir and add your perfume/body spray of choice.
Give it a little time to boil up and do it's thing!As the mixture bubbles, the alcohol is being boiled off so the end result will be a bit stronger than it was in the bottle, and it will last longer on skin. The longer you boil it, the stronger it will be.
After 3-5 minutes of boiling (depending on how strong you'd like it) pour your mixture into a clean container.If you want to take it on the go, get a container with a lid or use an old lip balm tube for easy application on the go!
After you've poured it, place in the fridge or freezer for a few hours to set.You can leave it out on the counter if you'd like. Of course, leaving it at room temperature will take longer. After it's set, leave it for a few hours to rest.
To apply, rub your finger around in the container, then dab it on the areas you would like to scent.If using a lip balm tube, rub directly on the skin. Good places to apply are the pulse points: sides of the neck, behind the ears, back of the knees, wrists, cleavage, and the elbow crease on your arm.
Gather your ingredients.You will need carrier oil and perfume/body spray for this one.
Place ingredients in double boiler, or a makeshift double boiler.
Boil for 3-5 minutes, depending on how strong you would like your scent to be.
After it's boiled up, take it off the heat and pour into a clean bottle or other container.
Let sit for a few hours until it has cooled down.
To apply, rub a small amount anywhere you would like.Arms, legs, chest, back, you name it! Except for your face. Don't do that.
QuestionCan you use a glittery body spray when trying to make solid perfumes?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, though it will have glitter in the final product which might cause it to feel gritty and/or grainy, as well as leave glitter on the skin. If you like that, go for it as the glitter will not alter the scent of the body spray as you make it into solid perfume.Thanks!

- Don't worry if your mixture looks like it has oil blobs floating around when it is boiling; the fragrance will separate from the rest of the mix, but will settle together while it cools. Keep stirring while it boils for even scent distribution.
- Even cheap body sprays can boil down to rich scents since you are taking alcohol out of it.
- Have fun and ask for help if you need it!
- If you don't your scent to be stronger in solid form, don't boil it as long or use as much.
- When choosing a carrier oil, get one with a light/neutral scent. A heavy, nutty oil might screw up a light, delicate citrus perfume oil you are trying to create. Good oils for minimal scent alteration are: grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, safflower oil, or refined coconut oil.
- Make as many as you like! The ease and cheapness of this method allows you to create as many solid perfumes as you have bottled ones!
- You can customize your scent by adding essential oils, other perfumes/body sprays, or extracts.
- The petroleum jelly hold onto the scent better, so it lasts on your skin for longer.
- If using coconut oil in perfume oil, the final product may harden in cooler temperatures.
- As this is stronger now than it was before, don't use too much!
- These methods also work with most colognes and men's body spray
- For a softer solid perfume, use more petroleum jelly than beeswax. For a firmer perfume, use more beeswax. Add more or less of each to your liking. Firmer perfumes are better for warmer climates, while more petroleum jelly will result in an easier to spread, softer perfume.
- If you would like a strong scent, layer this with the scent you used while making this!
- Use the perfume oil as a lovely massage oil
- Don't get scented petroleum jelly, or the scent may be altered.
- Do not pour oil down the sink. It will clog your pipes. Dump out any extra product, and wipe away excess with paper towel. Then, clean with soap and warm water as usual.
- Do not place in direct heat, or the product may melt.
- Watch your mixture as it cooks to prevent spills, fire, or boil-overs.
- Test the mixture on a patch of skin first to check if you will have any allergic reaction to the product.
- Use gloves if desired.
- The mixture is very hot once taken off the heat, so be extra careful when pouring and handling the mixture.
