Support the men in your life with this grounding and earthy, natural cologne.
A favorite of the men on Team Aromatics, this DIY solid cologne has the intoxicating, woodsy scent of black spruce and cedarwood, with subtle hints of orange and mint.
Put a glass or Pyrex measuring cup into a pot that’s about 1/4 full of simmering water. The water will heat the measuring cup from the outside.
Melt the beeswax and jojoba oil together in the Pyrex. You can stir gently with a glass stirring rod or a stainless steel spoon.
While the blend is melting, combine your essential oil drops in a small glass bowl.
When the beeswax and jojoba are melted, remove the Pyrex from heat and add the essential oils. Stir gently.
Pour the melted blend into 2 - 1 oz aluminum salve tins.
It will solidify pretty quickly, but be aware that it will continue to firm up over the next 24 hours.
This blend was created at a 3% dilution. We also recommend a small patch test to ensure there is no skin sensitivity.
Kid safety: For kids between the ages of 5 and 10, we recommend 4 drops norway pine, 2 drops black spruce, 3 drops sweet orange,1 drop cedarwood atlas, and 1 drop spearmint.
The ingredient with the shortest shelf life remaining becomes the shelf life of the entire blend.
