I used garage sale tie on labels to write what was in each of the containers. I used a 2 oz. Finger Spritzer Spray Bottles from Wal Mart for $0.97 each. I bought a dark blue plastic one instead of glass as is suggested when putting products with Essential Oils.
I bought plastic as it is cheaper and I won’t reuse on anything else and I wasn’t too worried about the plastic leaching into the spray. I did however use a really dark blue bottle so it would last a bit longer as light wouldn’t penetrate it as much as a clear bottle. However if you prefer you can buy amber or blue glass as is suggested.
I bought two glass cheese jars from Dollar Tree for $1 each. Any container will work as long as it has a lid with holes but I bought the jars as they already had holes, so I wouldn’t have to punch them myself and the jars are attractive even if they are said to be cheese jars. My Jasmine Nutmeg Body Powder I leave in my bathroom and the Energizing Blend Room Deodorizer I leave in my bedroom and both turned out wonderful.
I bought Grapefruit Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, and Jasmine Blended Oil at Wal Mart for $5.97 each. They are by Natures Bounty Earthly Elements. I will put a picture below of them. Though people may be skeptic about buying Essential Oils at Wal Mart I tried it and I am fully satisfied by the brand and price. Given price plus shipping and handling of online Essential and Blended oils this price is a bargain but you aren’t sacrificing quality at all. The price and product are wonderful in my opinion but I am new to using Essential and Blended Oils but I am satisfied.
In the recipe it gives examples of Body Powders to make but they say make what ever kind you like and I did just that. I fell in love with Bodycology Enchanted Forest Body Sprays smell so I decided to mimic it in my Body Powder as the Bodycology Enchanted Forest Body Spray used Jasmine, Nutmeg, and Musk.
Mine: Jasmine Nutmeg Body Powder
½ Cup Cornstarch
¼ Cup Baking Soda
½ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
5-6 Drops Jasmine Blended Oil (Jasmine Blended Oil was blended with Jasmine, Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E Oil)
I combined the Cornstarch and Baking Soda and Ground Nutmeg in the glass jars and then I slowly added 5-6 Drops of Jasmine Blended Oil and whisked it all together.
It is my favorite fragrance so far. I absolutely love it. It has a romantic exotic fragrance and I sometimes just go sniff it and it uplifts me. It is wonderful all over the body or I have even used it as a dry deodorant. The Jasmine Nutmeg Body Powder has held its fragrance and I have only broken up the clumps once so far.
Now the Energizing Blend Room Deodorizer I took the fragrance recipe from the Energizing Blend Body Spray by adding drops of Grapefruit and Lavender Essential Oils to the Baking Soda, I used about 5-7 drops Grapefruit and 3-4 drops Lavender in the Room Deodorizer.
The Energizing Blend Body Spray I found doesn’t really hold its fragrance well on the skin but is better when sprayed in the air. On the body you can’t smell it well unless you put your nose straight up to the skin and so no one would smell it unless they were right on you sniffing your skin or kissing you, so maybe would do well on date night! ;~)
I hope you enjoy and try some of this yourself! If you have any questions or comments just leave them below in the comment section and I will respond as soon as I can!
