Lavender Dusting Powder for the body

Love lavender?  Love using dusting powder?  Then why not combine the two by making this Lavender Dusting Powder recipe from Cultivating Life

This recipe is very simple to make and only needs a few ingredients and tools.  I found adding a pinch of sea salt very odd in a powder recipe and I would leave it out. I get enough salt in my diet anyway.  I  need to be more care with my salt intake.


Mixing bowl
Glass storage jar


1 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon arrowroot
1 teaspoon dried ground lavender buds
(Optional) ½ tsp dried rose, sage, thyme and/or calendula petals,
Pinch of sea salt


Put cornstarch, arrowroot, dried ground herbs/flowers and salt in bowl and whisk together. Remove any prickly pieces of dried plants. Put mixture in glass jars and seal tightly. Allow mixture to rest in dry place for a day or two so ingredients can meld.

To use: sprinkle onto dry clean skin or apply with a fluffy powder puff to areas prone to moisture. Excellent when used as a natural underarm deodorant, foot powder or dusting powder for babies.
