Here is another citrus project featuring the orange or tangerine peel that you can do while they are in season (and therefore affordable or free) ~ I love products created from simple pantry ingredients and this bath powder can be made in minutes. Who says that being a keeper at home is dull? It's a lot of fun to create concoctions in the kitchen!
List of Ingredients:
List of Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup of dried orange or tangerine peel (drying directions are found here)
- 1 cup of oatmeal
- 1/4 cup of baking soda
Oatmeal is very soothing and softening to the skin while the baking soda neutralizes pH levels and draws out toxins from the body. Orange and tangerine peels are known to help reduce wrinkles, scars, stretch-marks and acne while being pleasantly aromatic.
To make, grind up ingredients in a blender until mixture is nice and powdery. Pour inside a clean jar or container with lid. You will find free printable labels for this project here.
To use, place 1/2 cup of bath powder directly into your warm tub or scoop inside a bath sachet and soak your stress away. You will find more bath and body recipes here. We are also sharing our printable recipe in case you would like to add it to your herbal. Simply download and print from this link HERE.
