Make Your Own Baby Powder

Making your own baby powder reduces product waste that may end up in the landfill.  However, many baby powder containers are recyclable. Here is a recipe for homemade 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.

I see 'em bloom for me and for you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world'
