Roman Chamomile and Cedarwood Solid Perfume Recipe to Make at Home
Every time I smell Roman Chamomile essential oil, I can’t help but imagine standing in a blossoming apple orchard, with the scent of flowers and sun-warmed apples all around. Its beautiful aroma, along with its relaxing, opening effect on the emotions, makes Roman Chamomile a wonderful essential oil for natural perfumes and for sleep roller blends!
Roman Chamomile and Cedar Solid Perfume
Here’s a solid perfume recipe with Roman Chamomile and Cedarwood. You’ll notice how much more Cedarwood there is than Roman Chamomile—that’s because Roman Chamomile has a very strong aroma. A few drops go a long way, and it likes to dominate blends it’s included in. Woodsy Cedarwood is good balance for it.
You’ll need three 1 oz (30 ml) lip balm tins for this recipe.
½ oz (14 g) beeswax (Cera alba)
2 ½ oz (45 ml) jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
20 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)
40 drops Cedarwood essential oil (Juniperus virginiana)
- Set up the “Stovetop Melting Method” by putting a Pyrex measuring cup into a soup pot that is ¼ full of gently boiling water. Your ingredients will go in the Pyrex, which will be heated by the water.
- Melt the beeswax in the Pyrex measuring cup.
- Add the jojoba oil and melt.
- Remove the blend from heat and add the essential oils stirring gently with a glass stirring rod or the handle of a stainless steel spoon.
Pour the perfume into the 1 oz (30 ml) tins.
- I think you’ll be glad you have three tins of this perfume!
Once you get started making your own perfumes, it can become a favorite hobby. Here’s another solid perfume recipe I created for YouTube, “Vanilla and Resins Solid Natural Perfume.”
You can follow the recipes as I share them (which I suggest if you’re new to making perfume), and then play with recipe adjustments, or even come up with your own unique, personalized scents.
