Choosing and making your own solid fragrance is personal, fun and rewarding, and handmade perfumes make wonderful gifts (or favors for party guests). Add to the good feelings by choosing botanicals with aromatherapy benefits. Florals are uplifting and romantic, vanilla is warm and sweet, and woods and resins can be grounding and calming. (And they smell amazing!)
Solid perfume is also easy to package, carry, and re-apply at leisure. Let’s look at one way to make your own solid botanical perfumes.
