Organic arrowroot powder and kaolin clay make a fantastic powder base with gentle absorbent and skin softening properties.

Three calming and skin soothing botanicals are added - lavender, chamomile and calendula. They also lend a subtle fresh and clean scent to the powder. All three are grown, harvested and dried by "yours truly" without the aid of pesticides and herbicides.

7 Ways to Use Herbal Body Powder

1. Light Deodorant

Our body powder can be used as a light deodorant, absorbing perspiration and naturally helping to neutralize odours.

2. Baby Powder 

With our gentle and natural ingredients, herbal body powder is a great choice for baby. Infused with skin soothing chamomile flower, calendula flower, and lavender buds, first shake powder into your hand and then smooth on baby's bottom and/or folds to help absorb excess moisture & prevent chafing.

3. Dry Shampoo for Lighter Toned Hair 

Some days can be "crazy busy" and a shampoo and blow dry are not in the cards! For those days, we have found that our powder makes an excellent dry shampoo to absorb extra oils. With the shaker-like nozzle, it's easy to apply to hair roots.

4. Gives a better result from waxing

If you do your own waxing, apply a small amount on the cleansed area prior to waxing. This will help absorb any moisture and allow the wax and cloth strip to adhere better resulting in hairless, baby smooth skin!

5. Prevents chafing 

After bathing, towel dry and apply to chafe prone areas. It gives that silky "slip" preventing rubbing and pulling of skin that can cause irritation.

6. Soothing Razor Burn

Pat and lightly rub on skin that suffers from razor burn. Calendula, chamomile and lavender help calm and soothe irritated skin.

7. Foot Powder

Prone to sweaty feet? Rub powder on feet prior to putting on your shoes. You can also apply a sprinkling in shoes to freshen them up as well!
