Aromatherapy Deodorant Powder Recipe

Body powders absorb excess perspiration, and a combination of cypress, lavender and petitgrain essential oils combat odor-causing bacteria. This powder can be used on feet, too.

• 1/2 cup arrowroot
• 2 tablespoons white cosmetic clay
• 10 drops lavender essential oil
• 10 drops cypress essential oil
• 10 drops petitgrain essential oil

1. Mix together arrowroot and cosmetic clay.

2. Add essential oils drop by drop to the powder, mixing well with your fingers.

3. Store in a tightly covered container, and let the mixture sit for a couple of days before using. Apply with a powder puff or with your fingers.
