With its invigorating herbal scent from rosemary and thyme, and antibacterial properties, this homemade body powder appeals to both men and women.


This rosemary body powder also works great as a natural deodorant, and is especially good for people who are sensitive to chemical-based deodorants. It's perfect to use after exercise, especially in hot summer months.


This homemade natural dusting powder recipe makes about 2½ cups.


Rosemary and Thyme Bath Powder Recipe



1½ cups cornstarch


¾ cups baking soda


¼ cup thyme, finely powdered


¼ cup white clay


100 drops rosemary essential oil


50 drops thyme essential oil



How to make body powder

1. Mix cornstarch, baking soda, powdered thyme, and white clay together in a large bowl. You can combine these ingredients in a food processor for about 15 seconds. Transfer to a large resealable container or use a glass jar.


2. Scoop out 6 tablespoons of the powder mix, and place in small bowl.


3. Add rosemary and thyme essential oils, drop by drop until the oil is well absorbed.


4. Pour this oil/powder mixture back into your container, and mix thoroughly. Seal tightly.


5. Let the mixture sit for about 2 days so that the fragrances of essential oils can blend through completely.


6. Transfer your rosemary powder to smaller containers. Shaker containers, which are available cheaply at most local craft stores are great for this purpose. If you can't find them locally, you should be able to get them online.


You don’t have to refrigerate your homemade rosemary body powder, but please remember to use within 12 months for maximum fragrance.


Don't you agree homemade rosemary dusting powder makes very beautiful and personal gifts for your family and friends too?
