  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup of baking soda
  • peppermint essential oil, 12 to 14 drops

Mix well set aside overnight to dry. If there are lumps, sift it. Store in airtight container. I love this powder better than the store bought.

Use cinnamon oil to freshen up shoes, hands and feet. Just dab some on a tissue and get to wiping. Doesn't take much and smells great! Add 1-2 drops to soapy hands and wash as normal when wanting to freshen up hands or feet.
