Forget those baby powders you used as a teenager. You can make your own from a couple of ingredients and do your body some good. Here’s a good reliable DIY All Natural Body Powder that you can use every day and anywhere on your body. Baby-approved too.
DIY All Natural Body Powder
Don’t underestimate the power of body powder! I remember back in the day using store-bought baby powder all over my body after I got out of the shower. That lasted all through my teens and into my twenties.
Homemade Body Powder for Hot Flashes
Now, years later, I’m finding that body powder helps with those dreaded hot flashes I get all the time. Yep, body powder is excellent for hot flashes. Just sprinkle a little powder under your breasts and around your neck after having a hot flash and you’re good to go.
Of course, back in the day, we didn’t worry about bad chemicals in our body products like we do today. So this time around I made my own. It’s so easy to make this body powder. I promise you’ll never need or want to buy store-bought body powder again. Use this natural body powder as talc-free baby powder on your babies too.
How to make all-natural body powder
- 1/4 cup arrowroot*
- 1/2 cup aluminum-free organic cornstarch*
- 1/4 cup oatmeal (ground)**
- 10 drops Roman Chamomile (affiliate) essential oil (optional)
*Arrowroot is found in health food stores. I buy it in bulk so I can purchase exactly how much I need. I also store all my unused arrowroot in the freezer to keep it fresh.
*If you do not want to use cornstarch, you do not have to – just use arrowroot. It’s costly, but it can and does work without having to use cornstarch.
**Oatmeal is very good for the skin, but I use oatmeal in my body powder simply because it helps with the flow of the powder coming out of the shaker. Without it, the powder just splatters out.
You’ll need something to put your body powder in like a powdered sugar shaker or another shaker-style bottle with lid. I use a Pampered Chef shaker that I already had. It works perfectly.
- First, ground the oatmeal with a grinder
- Second, combine cornstarch and arrowroot
- Third, add in oatmeal
- Fourth, (optional), drop in 10 to 15 drops of 100% pure essential oils, such as Lavender or Roman Chamomile, or the mixture of the two.
Use when needed.
