With all the reports about the questionable use of talcum powder, why not make your own body powder? It’s economical, natural, customizable, and easy! Package it in a cute tin, a glass jar, a sealed paper bag, or in a fancy salt or parmesan shaker with a raffia bow, and you have a great homemade gift!
In a zipper bag, add 1 cup of any of the following: arrowroot powder, tapioca starch, bentonite clay, or organic cornstarch. (If using bentonite clay, be sure to add a portion of one of the other ingredients, to make it more fine and silky).
Then, add 20-30 drops of your favorite Young Living essential oil, or blend (you can add more if you want a stronger scent). Be mindful not to breathe any powder or dust during blending.
Store finished mixture in a glass container with a tight fitting lid and sprinkle or fluff on body when needed!
