DIY Your Own Semi-Solid Scent (Super Light Perfume)
These are also called head notes.
How to Mix the Scents:
Once you decide on your essential oils, you will need carrier oils. To make a solid perfume, you could use beeswax or straight coconut oil. To make a fully liquid perfume, almond oil is a fabulous carrier oil. To create a semi-solid perfume, I use a mixture of one part almond oil to two parts melted coconut oil. The reason I went with a semi-solid is because I wanted to pour my scents into these beautiful little perfume jars, but I needed it to be a little thicker than normal so that no perfume would be wasted when the applicator is pulled out of the jar.

Coconut Oil (I bought a big jug of mine at Costco for around $13)
Cut Crystal Perfume Bottles
Simply melt your carrier oils and mix together. 45 seconds in the microwave did it for me -- heat in small amount of time, do not let the oil boil and stay with your oils while heating so they don't explode. An even safer option is to use a candle warmer (like THIS one) to heat up the oils slowly.
