Lime

Rose Garden Dusting Powder

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dried ground pink rose petals
  • 1/4 cup ground dried lemon peel
  • 6 drops attar of roses
  • 4 drops geranium essential oil
  • 4 drops lime essential oil
  • 2 drops lemongrass essential oil

Mix dry ingredients in a nonreactive (glass is good) bowl. Drop in attar and essential oils, stirring with each addition. Pour into a dusting powder box. Apply with a powder duster.

If this type of packaging is unavailable, pour the mixture through a funnel into a shaker-topped powder bottle. Add a few grains of rise to stop ingredients from clumping.

To use, shake on body, bed, or inside shoes or drawers.
