Ready to make your cologne? First we need to make the base. To do this, fill your glass jar about 2/3 full with Bay leaves. (I used a small 6 ounce jar.) Pour jojoba wax into the jar over your Bay leaves until the Bay leaves are covered, then cap the jar. Place it in a crockpot and fill the crockpot with water to about 2/3 of the height of the jar. We don't want the jar fully submerged, just nicely nestled in the water. Turn your crockpot on low and leave it for 4-5 hours. Check your oil at 2 hours and every hour after that (be careful, the jar will be hot!). You'll know it's done when you can detect the scent of Bay in your infused oil. Remove the jar from the crockpot and leave it to cool completely on the counter.
Next, add the following essential oils to your 8 ml roller bottle:
- 10 drops Frankincense
- 5 drops Cedar Atlas
- 2 drops Vetiver
You'll want to leave your mixture to settle for a couple days. The aroma will develop and change a little over time as the essential oils meld together within your base. Test the scent after a couple days to see if you like it and adjust as needed.
Bonus - Now you have a jar of Bay infused jojoba to use in your other essential oil recipes! Use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove the plant matter from your jar, then seal and label your jar so you'll remember what it is.
Don't forget to print your free label. Enjoy!
