Sunflower Acres Body Dusting Powder made with crushed Calendula petals, Talc-free.
Is anyone else looking for help staying cool or at least appearing to be cool calm, and non-drenched? Here is another natural concoction that I have been playing around with lately, using the natural ingredients and herbs that I already have.
This works great alone or over our natural deodorant and in shoes to help keep dry. Our deodorant is for odor, this helps with moisture.
Body Dusting Powders can be of great benefit to a natural skin care routine. Dusting a pleasantly scented, or even a natural fragrance-free powder (this) on your body after a shower or bath can help to keep your skin feeling smooth and fairly dry during hot humid weather. Body Powders can also help to regulate skin's moisture by absorbing excess oil, and can help reduce friction that can cause heat rashes and irritation, which usually occurs on the legs and arms.
The base ingredients are Baking Soda, Corn Starch, and finely ground dried herbs and flowers. They are slightly gritty, due to the Baking Soda, but seem to really do the job of staying dry, until I find a way to make them more silky.
Sold in a plastic zip lock bag. Maybe you can find a recycled shaker jar, spice jar, vintage powder container, or pretty glass bowl to put the powder in and refill it as needed.
* Contains no toxic Zinc stearate, talc, or silicates.
