DIY Beauty: How to Make Perfumed Body Powder

There are so many scents available in the market. However, there are really times when you just do not know which to choose to best match your personal preference. While some people go out more to find the most ideal perfume to satisfy them, others learn how to make their own perfumed body powder at the comforts of the home. In this article, we will list down steps on how to create a DIY perfumed body powder from things that can be found easily in your own kitchen.

The first step is quite critical since this will be the scent of the resulting perfumed body powder. Choose any light scent that works compatibly with your skin. Then, spray the cotton balls or cotton swab tips about 30 to 45 times. This will make sure that the scent will be totally absorbed by the cotton.

Some people do not want to waste their luxury fragrances to transform them into body powder. A good solution is to look for the same or similar scent that’s cheaper. DIY beauty does not have to be luxurious! Typically, many perfume business in the Philippines do offer a lot of more affordable alternatives to expensive and branded perfumes. Another option is to put drops of essential oils like rose, ylang-ylang or lavender on the cotton balls instead.

If you don’t want your furniture or things at home to be affected by the scent, standing over the sink or near an open window is the best position. The next step is to get an empty large glass jar or glass container with a tightly fitting lid. You can look for containers that are used in bathrooms for bath salts or powders or powder puffs. Note that the design does not matter in terms of selecting the jar, but the size should be at least the standard size of a pasta sauce jar which can hold 26 oz. Drop the soaked and highly fragrant cotton ball or swabs in the bottom of the container.

Moving on, get about two cups of pure, food-grade cornstarch. It will feel soft and silky. You can get this from the baking section in any grocery store. Pure cornstarch makes a great, economical body powder and eliminates the chemicals found usually in commercial powder. Fill the jar with the cornstarch on top of the cotton ball and close the lid securely. But be careful not to fill the jar completely to the top. Just leave about a quarter of the jar empty, screw on the lid, and shake it up vigorously. To keep yourself from being too bored, you may want to sing Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” while doing so.

Once done, the proper safekeeping is to put the jar of powder somewhere dark and cool. Shaking should be done once or twice a day for the succeeding three days. After two weeks of storage, you will get to enjoy the perfumed body powder mixture and you can even give it as a gift to a friend.


We have just shared the easiest DIY beauty recipe to make your personalized perfumed body powder. With basic props and ingredients, you can turn cornstarch into perfume heaven! The good thing is that you do not have to spend a lot to follow the perfumed signature scent powder recipe. It is always cool to have a unique-smelling body powder that is all natural. The light, sheer, and velvety body powder will glide along your skin once applied, leaving the most wonderful scent that suits your taste best.
