If you love to make your own products, then you will love bath recipes. One in particular I like is homemade baby powder or also called bath powder.

You don't have to buy the expensive baby powder or bath powder from the store, you can make your own and it is really easy. If you happen to have an empty container from your last baby powder then you can use it for sprinkling powder on you after a bath, or you can use a container with a soft puff.

Otherwise you can purchase really cute shakers at the dollar store or discount store, they would be in the kitchen section. They are usually a jar with a lid with holes in it, and are great for bath recipes such as this one..

Things You Will Need

To make your own baby powder

1/2 cup of baking soda

1/2 cup of cornstarch

Step 1

That is it! Just mix them together and use a shaker jar, or a puff to put this on after your shower or bath. This is unscented and is gentle for your body as a after bath powder.

If you would like to have a bit more of a scent to it, then you can add a bit of crumbled lavender, but personally I like it plain, and use scents in the tub itself.

There is nothing more relaxing then a bath, especially after a hard day. It helps to relieve tension and soothes frayed nerves.

Brew yourself a great cup of chamomile tea, then run your bath, and light a few candles, and just relax. Afterwards, you can use this bath recipe of homemade bath baby powder or bath powder to help prevent any chaffing or to help you stay cool and dry.

This combination of baking soda and cornstarch is also safe enough for baby's bottom. It is a great feeling making your own bath recipes. More than likely your great grandma had to use this type of bath powder for herself and for her baby. By making your own, you know exactly what is in it and you will save money. Baking soda and cornstarch are totally affordable ingredients.

So, keep this in mind if you like to use bath powder or baby powder after your shower or bath, and if you have run out of your expensive type! Go to the kitchen, and if you have these two ingredients then you have the makings baby powder!
