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!
