Be sure to read the comments on the tutorial post, here, at Instructables. There are lots of tips submitted by readers about types of oils for various fragrances. There are also tips about what you can use for containers for the fragrant balm.
These are wonderful for token gifts for lots of folks you want to gift with something special and personal.
I was very surprised to see, in the comments on that page, other oils that can be used instead of the one listed in the recipe.
