How to Make DIY Natural Baby Powder with Chamomile

by Andrea Butje on November 26, 2018

Blog-Nov 26-How to Make DIY Natural Baby Powder with Chamomile-title- 600 x 900I recently received a few messages from babies whose moms and dads read The Aromahead Blog . . .

They all asked if I could share a recipe for natural baby powder that their moms and dads could make. The verdict is unanimous—all the babies asked for something super gentle on their skin, that was all-natural and very comforting.

Okay, I’m sure you’ve guessed . . . I didn’t actually receive messages from babies! But I have heard this question from parents who want to care for their little ones naturally.

I don’t have children myself, but I created this natural baby powder recipe for friends who do. They loved it so much that I shared this blend on YouTube, where it’s received over 28,000 views and a lot of positive comments. It’s very gentle even for sensitive skin (we definitely want something super-gentle for babies!)

You can watch me make the recipe, and I’ll share it here for you too. It makes 2 oz (56 g) of natural baby powder.

Really Natural Baby Powder

  • 1 oz (28 g) white clay
  • 1 tbsp dried German chamomile flowers (Matricaria recutita)
  • 1 tsp kuzu root (Pueraria montana)
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder (Vanilla planifolia)

First, we want to be sure the German chamomile flowers are completely ground up. I use a coffee grinder that I reserve just for making body products (coffee has such a strong, delicious aroma . . . but I don’t want all of my body products to smell like it!)

Grind up the German chamomile flowers really well until they’ve created a very fine powder. (We don’t want any intact flower stems in there.)

Stir all of your ingredients together, then put them into a 2 oz (60 ml) powder container.

Here’s a tip I learned from someone who made this natural baby powder recipe and commented on our YouTube video . . . you can use a spice shaker jar instead of a powder container! Spice shaker jars sometimes have smaller holes in their shaker-tops, so not as much powder will come out at once. It all depends on your preferences.

If your baby likes this natural baby powder, leave us a comment below so other babies will know!
