So…. a long time ago, I made a batch of body powder. At first I liked it. The fragrance was great and it helped me feel fresh during the day.
Unfortunately, the combination of ingredients were kinda scratchy… uh, in sensitive places and now instead of being THAT person who uses something up to not waste use it, I’m going to start from scratch (no pun intended).
I used the same recipe, but instead of grinding the rice and lavender, I’m going to leave the pieces whole. I hope to get the same benefits sans the scratching.
Lavender Body Powder

Add rice and lavender buds to powder container. Set aside.
Whisk the cornstarch and baking soda in a bowl (not plastic).
