We are making non-talc herbal body powders today that combat excessive sweat and body odor. We start of with astringing herbs such as organic sage leaf and lotus leaf and combine them with herbs that combat dampness such as job’s tear as seen below.
After grinding the herbs to a fine powder, we mix them with organic arrowroot powder and organic cornstarch to make a silky-smooth body powder.
Other herbs can be used to make body powders depending on the desired affect: our cinnamon-cedar combination kills odor causing bacteria; our fennel-calendula combination is ideal for areas where fungal infections may occur; our lavender-rose combination is ideal for baby’s bottoms. You can find all of our organic body powders here.
