love j+j baby powder?
me too... well, i used to until i discovered the ingredients.
"The ingredients of Johnson's baby powder are listed as Talc, Parfum, Benzyl Benzoate, Coumarin, Citronellol, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol, Limonene, Linalool and Benzyl Salicylate." -From Wikipedia

what the heck have i been exposing my skin + baby's skin to? so now it is only an all natural body powder for me. make your own with just 2 simple indredients. cheap + so effective!

supply list:
corn startch
baking soda
uncooked rice
jar + lid with holes {i used a pizza cheese shaker from the $ store}
essential oils {optional}

how to:
1. mix two parts corn startch with one part baking soda in a bowl.
2. add essential oils to scent preference if desired + mix well.
3. add a pinch of uncooked rice to bottom of jar. the rice will keep the powder from clumping.
4. funnel mixture in to jar, attach lid + shake well.
5. use after bath for a dry silky smooth feeling!
