Black Forest Solid Cologne

Support the men in your life with this grounding and earthy, natural cologne.

This cologne is made with a blend of essential oils that give it a rich, nuanced aroma—piney conifer scents layered over deep, earthy tones. This recipe is so popular with the guys we turned it into a DIY Kit for Men.

Ingredients

Supplies

Directions

STEP 1

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.

STEP 2

Melt the beeswax and jojoba oil together in the Pyrex. You can stir gently with a glass stirring rod or a stainless steel spoon.

STEP 3

While the blend is melting, combine your essential oil drops in a small glass bowl.

STEP 4

When the beeswax and jojoba are melted, remove the Pyrex from heat and add the essential oils. Stir gently.

STEP 5

Pour the melted blend into 2 - 1 oz aluminum salve tins. 

STEP 6

It will solidify pretty quickly, but be aware that it will continue to firm up over the next 24 hours.

Safety and dilution

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.

Shelf Life

The ingredient with the shortest shelf life remaining becomes the shelf life of the entire blend.
