Homemade Baby Powder

I’m running very low on money and couldn’t even buy baby powder which is $1, I wondered if there was a way to make your own. I searched online and found a recipe using baking ingredients.

It actually makes a lot at a time.

The recipe called for an oil fragrance, but I didn’t have any, so I used coconut extract because I wanted a nice coconut smell. Never used this extract before so it was still sealed and smelled pretty good. Maybe I can use almond next time.

Homemade Baby Powder

• 1 cup white rice flour
• 1/2 cup cornstarch
• 1/4 tsp extract (coconut this time)

Whisk ingredients in a large bowl.
Place the cornstarch and rice flour in a resealable jar. A mason jar, or a reused glass jar with a lid, works well.
Add 15 drops of your favorite essential oil, but I added 1/4 tsp of coconut extract drop by drop. Invigorating scents work well in body powder. Some invigorating essential oils to consider are mint, rosemary, or lavender. Rosewood also has a very enjoyable fragrance that is commonly used in making perfume. If you would like your powder to have a masculine scent consider patchouli oil.
