I love the smjiplicity! I made this today and used lotus essential oil. Wow I smell nice and feel so silky.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 10 -20 drops of rose essential oils (or essential or fragrance oil of your choice)


  1. Combine the baking soda and cornstarch in a big glass jar.
  2. Add the essential oil, a few drops at a time, shaking very well after each addition.
  3. (You can use a small wire whisk or fork to get out any clumps.) Test the scent of the bath powder after each addition to get a powder that's perfectly scented for you.
  4. (Some people like a strongly scented product, others like a very subtle scent- it's up to you!) Allow the powder to sit for about a day before using, to let the fragrance or essential oil completely absorb.
  5. This is a wonderful, simple recipe that you'll use for years to make your own wonderful bath powder!
