Thursday, January 18, 2007 Bath and Beauty Recipes - Scented Bath (Talcum) Powder with Rose Essential Oil

Scented Bath Powder
Hey all, this oldie but goodie recipe is from a 2000 newsletter I sent out. It's a fantastic little homemade toiletry recipe. Plus, because it uses only baking soda, cornstarch & some essential oil or fragrance - it's easy AND easy on your wallet too. Yay for inexpensive gift ideas!

Here's the original recipe:

This is a wonderful after-bath powder to give as gifts, or you can
use it everyday.

1 cup baking soda
1 cup cornstarch
10-20 drops of Rose essential oil, or essential or fragrance
oil of your choice
Glass jar, to store

Combine the baking soda and cornstarch in a big glass jar. Add the
essential oil, a few drops at a time, shaking very well after each
addition. (You can use a small wire whisk or fork to get out any
clumps.) Test the scent of the bath powder after each addition to
get a powder that's perfectly scented for you. (Some people like
a strongly scented product, others like a very subtle scent.
It's up to you!)

Allow the powder to sit for about a day before using, to let the
fragrance or essential oil completely absorb. That's it! This
is a wonderful, simple recipe that you'll use for years to make your
own wonderful bath powder!
