Intro:  Using a powder after a bath or shower just makes you feel fresh, plus it leaves you smelling wonderful.  This all-natural bath powder also has deodorizing properties.

Step 1:  Sift ½ cup baking soda, ½ cup cornflour, and 2 tablespoons powdered arrowroot to remove all of the lumps.

Step 2:  Add 2 tablepoons white cosmetic clay and mix well.

Step 3:  Add 15 drops of essential oil of lemon, 15 drops of essential oil of neroli, and 10 drops of essential oil of lemongrass.

Step 4:  Store in an airtight container and keep in a cool, dark place.

Step 5:  Use a powder puff to apply.


•The essential oils will eliminate odor-causing bacteria.

•The white cosmetic clay absorbs moisture.

•Neroli is frequently used in perfumes and as an element in aromatherapy.  It, along with the other essential oils mentioned here, can be found at your local organic food store and/or your local herbal store.

•Use this on feet that get sweaty and dust a little into your shoes to cut down on odors.


•Pregnant women and children should only use half the recommended amounts of essential oils.  If you have any concerns, first consult with your physician or a certified herbalist.

•As with all herbal remedies, test a small patch of skin before using.
