With all the reports about the questionable use of talcum powder, why not make your own body powder? It’s economical, customizable, and easy! Package it in a cute tin, inside a sealed bag, or in a fancy salt shaker with a bow, and you have a great homemade gift!

In a zipper bag, add 1 cup of any of the following: arrowroot powder, betonite clay, cornstarch, or baking soda. (If using betonite clay, be sure to add a portion of one of the other ingredients, to make it more fine and silky).

Then, add up to 20 drops of your favorite Young Living essential oil, or blend. Be mindful not to breathe any powder or dust during blending.

Put finished mixture into container with a tight fitting lid.
