Rose and Mimosa Solid Perfume

This all natural, vegan, perfume is made from only three ingredients: Mimosa Floral Wax, Clear Jojoba, and Organic Rose Damnascena CO2 Extract.  This is a pretty luxurious recipe, as it is made with mostly precious ingredients.  You can create a more economic version of this recipe by swapping the CO2 out for something less expensive.  Natural options include our Rose Essential Oil, Rose Absolute, or Rose Attar.  You can make the recipe even less costly by using a Rose Fragrance Oil in place of the CO2.  If you do choose to use a Fragrance Oil, be sure to use a little more than the recipe calls for, as the scent will not be as strong.
Rose & Mimosa Solid Perfumes
In a double boiler, gently melt the Floral Wax and Jojoba Oil together.  When the Floral Wax has melted completely, remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool for a few moments.  Add the CO2 Extract and stir well before pouring the mixture into containers.  Allow the containers to cool and harden completely before handling them.
Usage & Packaging
Dab a small amount of perfume onto your neck, behind your ears, on your wrists, or wherever you'd like to enjoy a touch of floral fragrance.  These tiny perfumes can be packaged in numerous ways.  Since they pack a strong scent in a small volume, I would suggest using small containers.  Our Crystal Jars, or Pink Mini Lip Balm Pots would be good choices.  We packaged ours in our 1/4 ounce Slider Tins for this project.  You can download free, printable labels here to make your tins extra pretty:  Download MimosaRosePerfumeSheet
Please note that the label print out includes two different ingredient listings, one that uses CO2 Extract, and one that uses Fragrance Oil.  Make sure you pick the right label when you decorate your tin.
