One of the concerns in our home is not just corn in food but in other products. Not just Abby's products but ours. Powders 99.9 percent of the time contain cornstarch. A little bit of that powder circulating in the air or on our bodies can cause a reaction in Abby.
Living in Houston having a little cooling powder for the feet can seem like a necessity at times to stay fresh all day. This worked perfectly to replace the corny store bought version. You could easily use arrowroot, or other fine starch. I used some glutenous rice flour because I have a surplus right now and figured why not? Worked just fine.
Cooling Foot and Body Powder Recipe
You will need:
1 cup powdered tapioca starch(or arrowroot)
1 cup super fine rice flour
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
10 drops tea tree essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops peppermint oil
5 drops eucalyptus oil
Add oils to absorbent cotton pad.
I put the pad in the bottom of the jar and dropped the oil on it, then put the mixed dried ingredients on top.
Add powder mix, shake or stir well, allow to sit 24 hours, shake or stir again, allow to sit another 24 hours, shake or stir powder, remove pad and discard, place powder into containers, it is ready to use.
Same idea for any other scent you would like.
Rose powder etc.
