This is a wonderful item to make for yourself or as a gift. The essential oils in the blend give an aroma that help with anxiety, stress, and tension. If you are making only a couple for yourself, cut the recipe down to ¼ the original size. For the full recipe, you need 12 to 14 round 1-ounce tins or heat resistant jars to pour the liquid into. It is best to warm the base ingredients in a double boiler or a bowl over water, rather than directly on the stove.
Solid perfume can also be placed in a locket and worn around the neck. The heat of the body will release the scent.
