This ‘fresh out of the shower scent lifts your mood and conjures up feelings of comfort that can set the tone for the rest of the day. This lovely, soft scent is actually a combination of notes we are already familiar with, such as rose, vanilla, and jasmine. Recreating this nostalgic baby powder scent is possible using essential oils. It is also a natural way to smell good on the days you want to go perfume-free. Wondering which essential oils smell like baby powder? There are a few essential oil powder-blends on the market to choose from or you can create your own using just 4 essential oils.
Create your own essential oil blend that smell like baby powder
To create your own baby powder scented blend, you will need 2 middle notes, a top note, and a bridge note. You will need these essential oils:
- 4 Drops Vanilla (bridge note)
- 2 Drop Geranium (middle note)
- 2 Drops Rosewood (Top note)
- 1 Drop Ylang Ylang (middle note)
Together, these essential oils smell like baby powder. Mix them well in a glass container with a tight lid, by shaking the bottle vigorously and letting it stand for at least 48 hours. With time, the scent will grow stronger. This calming scent has a 44% floral, 32% resinous, and 24% woody aromatic profile.
TIP: Always use the best therapeutic grade essential oils for topical application. This is because the essential oil market is strewn with unscrupulous brands selling diluted products which often also happens to be laced with toxic chemicals. In order to avoid skin reactions, it is best to choose pure undiluted essential oil. These types of essential oils are a little more costly as more care and effort are taken in producing them. If the blend is too strong or you have sensitive skin, dilute this blend with a carrier oil. Remember that essential oils are potent plant extracts and need to be used with care and thought. Using too much of a natural thing can cause toxicity.
