I think that it's very flattering when someone tell you that you smell good. There are surely others, but you know what I mean! It's fun to hear!
Smelling good is a nice compliment, but in exchange you have to reveal what is at the origin of this good smell! The surprise that your friends will have when you tell them that it is not a commercial perfume, but a personal!
What's the secret? Create fragrances based on essential oils of plants, so 100% natural fragrances, which stay longer than a traditional perfume on the skin because they do not contain alcohol!
There are several possible variations, you might even invent yours depending on the odors you like.
Here is the basic recipe to which you will need to add essential oils later.
Melt in a water bath 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil or coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of beeswax, then add the essential oils of your choice.
All essential oils are sold in natural health stores.
When your mixture is done, pour the wax into a small airtight container and wait 24 hours before using it.
Essential oils to add
1-7 drops of essential oil of clove, 8 drops of essential oil of bergamot, 3 drops of essential oil of sassafras and 2 drops of essential oil of orange.
2-7 drops of essential oil of clove, 8 drops of essential oil of bergamot, 3 drops of essential oil of Stress Away and 2 drops of essential oil of tangerine.

You may make several mistakes before you find one that suits you, but a missed test for you is perhaps a completely successful test for a friend! It will not be lost!
