Cooling Foot and Body Powder

1/2 cup powdered arrowroot
1/2 cup cosmetic clay
2 tbs. powdered ginger
20 drops tea tree oil (or lavender essential oil)

This light, fragrant powder absorbs moisture and fights bacteria to eradicate perspiration and body odor. It also helps relieve athlete’s foot.
It contains tea tree oil and powdered ginger, both of which have antiseptic and antifungal action. If you’re making a body powder, you may prefer to use lavender essential oil in place of the tea tree oil; it has a little less antiseptic power, but more fragrance. Instructions for making powder: In a large jar, combine the arrowroot, cosmetic clay and ginger. Cover and shake to mix. Add the tea tree or lavender oil and shake again. You may want to sift the powder through a fine mesh strainer to break up any drops of oil. Store in a covered, dark glass jar. Apply as needed to feet or body. Stored in a cool, dry place, the powder will keep indefinitely.
