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
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.

gifts for your family and friends too?
