Body Powder is refreshing and keeps your dry. But, with all the harmful ingredients in store- brought body powder, one is afraid to use it. Make your own safe and natural body powder in a few minutes with a few ingredients you may have on hand.
This is all you need to make your own natural body powder:
Simply mix all the ingredients in a glass or stoneware bowl until well mixed. Using a funnel, spoon your body powder in a sifter container. Or, if you wish, place in a used powder puff container.
You can grind your herbs or flowers in a herb or coffee ginder.
My Favorite Summer Recipe
1/4 cup arrowroot powder (like here)
1/8 cup cornstarch
1/16 cup baking soda (like here)
1 tablespoon ground peppermint leaves (like here)
15 drops peppermint essential oil
Mix it all together, and use it under my arms and breast to stay dry and cool. You can sprinkle it in your shoes, socks, and underwear for a refreshing scent and stay comfortable too.
