Joy Solid Perfume Recipe With Essential Oils

Most store-bought perfumes are full of toxins, and I could go on for so long explaining why this is one of the many chemical-filled products that you should ditch.

Artificial fragrances are associated with a staggering amount of health risks. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as reading the product label to steer ourselves away from these toxic villains. Due to “trade secrets”, manufacturers can hide whatever toxins they add as “fragrance” ingredients. To add to that, the fragrance industry regulates itself so there’s really no third-party group that can save us from these toxins.

The best way to go about this dilemma is to make our own perfumes using essential oils! Presenting our newest solid perfume recipe: Joy Solid Perfume. It uses the natural aroma of essential oils to have you smelling great all the time.

What I Love About This Solid Perfume Recipe

Joy Solid Perfume has a very subtle yet consistent aroma that I absolutely love. Its aroma is gentle and appealing, unlike most commercial perfumes.

What’s in This Joy Solid Perfume Recipe


Beeswax is the main ingredient that keeps this recipe in a “solid” form. Moreover, it locks the recipe’s scent in and helps the oil’s aroma to linger longer on the skin.

Almond Oil

The carrier oil you use is totally up to you, but we chose Almond Oil for this recipe. Almond Oil is one of the top-picked carrier oils in perfume making along with Jojoba and Grapeseed Oil.

Clary Sage Essential Oil

Clary Sage Essential Oil has a sweet, herbaceous aroma that is both calming and uplifting. It is a great fragrance modifier and is even found in various artisan perfumes in the market.

Citrus Burst Essential Oil Blend

Fans of citrus oils love our Citrus Burst Essential Oil Blend. It is a blend of Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Orange, and Bergamot Essential Oils. These oils work together to create the perfect citrus blend!

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

If you are pregnant, consult your doctor prior to use.

This essential oil recipe is safe to use with kids aged 10+.
