This powder is seriously awesome. You can use it for so many different things, and it's super easy to make!
You only need two ingredients:
- Organic Arrowroot Powder
- Lavender Essential Oil
Both are available through Starwest Botanicals.
Find a clean, airtight container to keep your body powder in. Add one drop of lavender essential oil per tablespoon of powder - you don't really have to measure. You can guesstimate and adjust depending on how strong you'd like it to be.
The reason I love this powder so much is that it's so versatile:
- Use it as a body powder to stay smelling puuuurty.
- Use it as a dry shampoo (works best on light hair.)
- Use it as an all natural alternative to baby powder.
- Use it to set your makeup...
- ...or as an eye shadow primer.
No matter how you use it, a little goes a long way. Enjoy!
I was just thinking about powder the other day! Didn't think to make my own. Excellent! I will be trying this out asap. Thanks!
I think this sounds great. I don't like lavender, but I can replace it with something else. Thanks.
That's the spirit! 🙂

I wonder what might be added to this to make it a natural deodorant?
I was thinking about that! I think a little baking soda added would make it a good powdered deodorant, and then also coconut oil or shea butter for something creamy. If you give it a try, report back! 🙂
I have never heard of arrowroot powder. Dumb question but is it the same stuff as in arrowroot baby cookies?
Hi Kristen! Not a dumb question, I actually had to look into this a bit. Arrowroot cookies have arrowroot flour. I believe they are the same thing. Arrowroot is marketed as both "flour" for baking and "powder" as a starch, but as far as I can tell they are the same. You actually helped me stumble upon a money-saving tip, because the flour is cheaper! Thanks for commenting. 🙂
That's great. Glad to help. 🙂
