DIY: Make Your Own Toxin-Free Perfume!
As a holistic health coach and natural weight loss expert, I often work with people who are completely off balance both physically and emotionally. To help them get back on track, I help them transform their lives based on several pillars, one of which is detoxification.
Step by step we replace all kinds of artificial foods and products with all-natural, fun vitamin cures and DIY alternatives.
Did you know, for example, that according to the EU Cosmetics Directive, "perfume is the second most common cause of allergy identified in patients with allergic dermatitis?"
I'd say it's high time to stop using toxic fragrances!
This is what you need to create your very own, solid "signature" scent:
- A small, sealable glass container
- 1 Tbsp. organic beeswax beads
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. jojoba or avocado oil
- About 50 drops of your favorite essential oils (I love vanilla, jasmine and bergamot)
Melt the beeswax in a small ceramic or glass bowl placed into a pot with simmering water. Use the end of a wooden spoon for stirring.
Once the beeswax is melted, add the oils and stir the mixture until all ingredients are well combined.
Pour the perfume into your container and leave until cooled.
Apply your solid signature perfume by rubbing it on the inside of your wrists, and I promise it won't take long before people will ask you about the amazing scent you're wearing.
I started detoxing my own life and home many years ago, and I've now got a whole bunch of amazing DIY recipes for almost anything.
