I haven't always been a wearer of body powder...never even gave it a second glance. But my mom is, and has been for as long as I can remember. Something else about my mom...she smells like heaven...always. It wasn't until this last Christmas that I realized why (besides her natural sweetness) when she mentioned to Santa's helper (that would be me, I'm in charge of relaying messages to the man who makes the magic happen at Christmas...aka my dad) that she was almost out of her Estee Lauder "beautiful" body powder. She wears perfumed body powder! That's how come she smells soooooo good, and so does her pillow, and clothes, and when I hug her, it's just so pleasant!
So, since perfumed body powder is expensive, and I don't have moolah to be a throwin around where it needn't, I set out to make some myself, and I have been smelling good for months now! Here's how I did it...
Step 1: Materials
-a cotton ball
-a glass jar with a lid (not pictured above...forgive me)
-your favorite perfume (Mine is Calvin Klein Euphoria, a V-day gift from the hubbs a couple years ago)
-some shower to shower, body powder (I got mine at the dollar store, it doesn't matter if it's scented because the perfume will be stronger)
-Something cute to keep it in (could be a tin, a paper mache round box ...I've seen them at the craft store) Walmart sells little glass jars like mine with the salt and pepper shakers/cookie jars
Step 2: Step 1
Step 3: Step 2
Step 4: Step 3
Step 4: Let it sit for 10-14 days, shake it up a bit every day, this is the hardest part, to let it "cure"
Step 5: Step 5
I don't even put on perfume anymore, I just have a subtle yummy smell about me...just ask my hubby!
*Would also make a FANTASTIC gift! Mother's Day, Bridal Shower, you name it!
