To make your own solid perfume, you will need a few basic ingredients from your local health store, drugstore or local crafts store. I will also suggest online stores where these products are available on the Internet.
Let's get started with the basic solid perfume recipe and you can include your homemade solid perfumes in gift baskets bath products for a special someone!

You will also need a small container or two to pour your solid perfume into. You want a container with a large opening so that you can easily rub your finger on the perfume. You can also use lipstick containers that have been emptied and cleaned out for an easy applicator.
Use a bain-marie or double-boiler if you have one. If not, simply put a small bowl into a saucepan that contains about 1 inch of water. Pour the almond oil and beeswax in the small bowl and turn on the stove top.
Let the wax melt, then remove it from the heat. Use a chopstick or other small utensil to stir the oil and beeswax and add the essential oils. Then pour the mixture into your small container.
Let it cool for 30 minutes then seal it.
If you can't make up your mind on the type of oils to use, feel free to read more on the benefits or particular aromatherapy essential oils.
I personally enjoy jasmine, vanilla and any type of citrus scented oil.
