Solid perfume diy

I have an old locket with solid perfume in it, and I wanted to do that with some of my other ones. This diy is so easy and only requires 3 ingredients, Beeswax, Essential oil of choice, and either mango, shea, coconut, or cocoa butter. 1 oz of this will make about 4 lockets full of perfume.
The Ratio:
1-2 parts beeswax to 3 parts oil. 5-10 drops of essential oil for every oz of butter and beeswax.
The amount of beeswax used depends on how easy your butter melts. For example cocoa needs more like 1 part where coconut needs more like 2.

In a double broiler, melt the beeswax. Once it is melted melt the oil in with it. I use a chopstick to stir it. Then take the measuring cup (I use an old jar usually) out of the water and stir in the essential oil. 

Here I put it into a locket.
I also put some in small lip balm containers.
