Crafty Becasue I Have Too...

Africa can be hotmost of you are thinking it is always hot. Not true. There are many comfortable days here in Kampala. The best description I have of Uganda is...Hawaii. Both are green and lush. Great fresh fruits all year long. Rain that comes and goes. The only thing that is different is Uganda is land-locked!

Some days are hot and Lack Victoria is close by it can be humid some days (some days not all). One thing I have learned is that body dusting powder is helpful.. Not the kind Grandma used. This is homemade and smells sweet!

Here is the recipe I use to make it. It is easy, smells great, and works amazing!

Dusting powder:

1 cup of rice flour (soy flour will work just a well)

½ cup of baking soda

½ cup of cornstarch

1 cotton ball

few drops of your fav essential oil (I use vanilla)

Sift all powders together into an airtight container. After all the powers are sifted together add some oil drops to the cotton ball. Place the ball with oil on it into the powder and keep closed for 24 hours. After the 24 hours shake the container and let sit for another 24 hours. After 48 hours use and enjoy!
