Make Your Own Baby Powder
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup chamomile flowers, dried
1 Tbsp. peppermint leaves, dried
1 Tbsp. baking soda
4 Tbsp. cornstarch or arrowroot powder
In a spice mill, grind oatmeal, chamomile flowers, and peppermint leaves until a fine powder. It may be helpful to grind each ingredient separately. Sift for a fine powder. Mix in the baking soda and cornstarch. Pour in a shaker bottle or container.
If you want another fragrance, omit the chamomile and peppermint and add a few drops of your favorite aromatherapy oil scent. You can also use lavendar flowers instead of the chamomile and peppermint.
