DIY BABY POWDERS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Homemade-Baby-Powder-1-660x461

I think I’m in love with DIY Natural. They have so many wonderful DIY Health and Beauty recipes.  This one is for Talc Free and Cornstarch free baby powder.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons White Kaolin Clay (White Cosmetic Clay) – absorbent and mild
  • 2 tablespoons Arrowroot Powder (Arrowroot Starch/Flour)
  • 3 drops each Essential Oils – chamomile and lavender – these have anti-inflammatory and soothing characteristics
  • Dried Herbs – an be used in place of, or added with essential oils; great for deodorizing; grind into a powder form.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients and stir carefully.
  2. Drip essential oils on top and stir thoroughly to combine.
  3. Transfer to a powder shaker bottle like this or this, or a re-purposed spice bottle with shaker top.

The creator of this recipe states if you are using this on a baby alway shake into your hand so the baby doesn’t inhale the powder and it’s not for baby’s under 3 months of age. Don’t use on broken skin.
