One area many of us neglect are our feet. The one part of our body that is always in contact with something and bears the most weight and we forget about them. Now, I know I have included this in my Handmade Christmas series and you may not want to gift this, but I’m sure those who receive it would be forever grateful. This blackcurrant and sage foot powder is the perfect antidote to tired feet and helps keep away any nasty smells without drying out the skin.
Kaolin is a great powder to use on your body as it naturally absorbs moisture without over-drying the skin. It will retain the sage, blackcurrant and lemon fragrance better than any other powder too.
Blackcurrant and Sage Foot Powder
What to do
- Grind down all the dried herbs with a pestle and mortar, till it becomes a fine powder.
- Add in the kaolin powder and mix thoroughly. Now add the lemon essential oil and mix again. Allow the powder to dry.
- Store the powder in an old body powder dispenser or if you do not have one, a pepper shaker. Ensure the containers are clean and dry prior to use.
- Use within 2 months.
As with any homemade product, please try on a small area before applying to a larger area. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients then please do not make or use this.
