Natural Homemade Baby Powder. Or "The Crotch Duster."

Attention to ALL WHO NEED BABY POWDER in their daily routine!

Moms of Babies.



You name it - someone in your family religiously uses this white, sprinkly, soft, messy stuff - making life so much easier, and less, well, "raw."

While baby powder is one of the best things since sliced bread considering the fact that it conveniently keeps you dry, prevents chafing, and soothes irritated skin - the hidden dangers in store bought baby powders are actually quite frightening.

One of the main ingredients in most conventional products is talcum powder - that, of which, contains a highly toxic ingredient called talc.

Researchers have warned the general population of this toxin, as it has been studied and linked to multiple different types of health problems, including cancer. 

Don't believe me? Look it up.

Grab the baby powder you've been using on your infant son's hiney, the stuff your husband generously dusts into his underwear in the mornings, the stuff your teen girls sprinkle on their greasy hairline for a quick "dry shampoo" fix.

Look at the toxicity of the brand you're using in your home on the "Think Dirty" app for your smart phone. And if seeing the results doesn't scare you enough to toss that crap - I don't know what will.

So, what's the natural solution? I've found it! It's natural, talc-free, and quite easy to make yourself.

We'll simply call this recipe, "Healthier Hannah's Natural Baby Powder."

Or if you're a gal, and that 'supermodel thigh gap' simply isn't a part of the beautiful body shape God perfectly designed just for you, we'll call it "Fairytale Mermaid Sprinkles."

Or if you're a guy, we'll just bluntly call it "The Crotch Duster." 


2 Tbsp White Kaolin Clay

2 Tbsp Arrowroot Powder

5 Drops YL German Chamomile Essential Oil

5 Drops YL Lavender Essential Oil


In a small container, add white kaolin clay and arrowroot powder. Drop in designated amounts of YL essential oils. Mix well with spoon. Apply on desired areas. When finished, cover powder in container or store in a separate shaker bottle.

I was able to find the clay and powder on Amazon with no problem. However, DO NOT purchase the essential oils on Amazon! That can be extremely dangerous, as it is not coming from the company directly. Instead, buy them here with a 24% discount. 

I'll be honest - I'm not much of a DIY person. The convenience of buying something like this pre-made has always been the route I took in the past - UNTIL I EDUCATED MYSELF.

Now, if it means that I have to spend literally two minutes creating a baby powder for my son that will eliminate his exposure to a harmful cancer-causing toxin - YOU BET I'LL TAKE THE TIME MAKE THIS STUFF.

Don't you agree?

Natural Throat Soothing Tea


I woke up this morning, and a frog had moved into my throat.

Or was it a horned toad?

It legitimately packed its bags, settled into the top of my esophagus, and has put in a request to pay rent on the 15th of the month.

Well, guess what, my annoying little metaphorical amphibian friend. You're not welcomed. And you're about to get evicted.

Today is a big day for this momma. Some exciting new ventures that are going to require me to be talking to folks, being on the phone A LOT - on top of taking care of two sweet babies, who require my full attention, to breast feed or to sit and watch their living room interpretive dances to a Maren Morris song. 

Either way - being healthy, strong, and able to tackle today, of all days, is extremely important right now.

Every time I need any sort of immune support, I always take the road less traveled and go down the natural path first.

And when it comes to my throat, I've found my favorite natural combination of herbs and essential oils that allow me to tackle the day.

Natural Throat Soothing Tea


1 Cup Hot Water

1 Bag of Throat Coat Tea

2 Tbsp Honey

2 Drops YL Lemon Vitality Essential Oil

2 Drops YL Thieves Vitality Essential Oil

2 Drops YL Frankincense Vitality Essential Oil

1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper


Now, again, before you flip a lid and wonder why whiskey is involved - no, it's not because I'm wanting to get a buzz. Whiskey, in very small amounts, is a timeless ingredient used for ages to sooth throats in hot tea. I've used this recipe many times, and always feel a much better difference when I add a small splash of whiskey to the mixture. And hey - if you don't want to do that - totally cool, my friend! It's all personal preference.

The main ingredients that make this tea work the way it does - is the YL essential oils. Those are the only ones I would EVER use to drink in my tea, as they're the only ones I'd ever remotely trust to take internally, because I know all about how they are sourced and created. Thieves, Lemon, and Frankincense are highly powerful in supporting the immune system, and always leave my throat feeling refreshed and renewed when I drink drops in my tea.


Steep tea bag into cup of hot water for 1 minute. Add in drops of YL vitality essential oils. Mix in honey and whiskey. Add a dash of cayenne pepper and mix well. Drink and enjoy!
