I usually use milligrams (measured on my pyrex measuring cup that I use for melting down)
100 mg beeswax
400 mg oils
Then I pour into a variety of sized jars and lip pots with eo and vit e.
For lip balms and salves I usually use a few drops per oz of pot or jar. But I figured it would take more to actually make it like a perfume.
May I ask what kind of ess oils you tried using before? I have some (ie NOW) that it takes a ton to smell at all, and others that one drop pretty much knocks you over (ie aura cacia). I don't have any flavored oils to use right now.
Thanks for the help. Between milligrams, ounces and teaspoons, my head is spinning:LOL
