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 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?
