    Default Essential oil fragrance longevity help needed.

    I've been making some deodorant with either two or three essential oils added up to 2% by weight, but in general the longevity of their fragrances is very poor. Things like lemon, geranium, lavender, peppermint, etc., only last an hour or two at best (and that is being charitable). Some essential oils such as tea tree and black pepper last many more hours though, but I prefer fresh/floral/citrus in a deodorant. Not too keen on woody base notes here.

    I was wondering if there was anything I could add to improve the longevity? I forgot the mention that I'm trying to stay 'natural' so synthetic fragrances are out of the question. Could there be some fragrances oils or isolates that I could add that could claim to be natural and would they help much? I've had very little luck finding anything like this except maybe for lemon.

    Elemi resinoid could be blended into a waxy deodorant.

    All of these floral waxes would also be excellent in a deodorant stick:
