Perfumed Bath Powder
Author/Submitted by: Cheaper and Better
Several drops perfume or,
Easy and inexpensive. Clouds of fragrance. Rice powder is available from
health food stores and orrisroot powder from a pharmacy.
Mix all and store the powder in a tightly closed tin for 1 WEEK so that
the orrisroot powder will absorb the scent. Transfer to other containers
of your choice if desired.
Ideas: Can be sprinkled from the kind of big shaker that is normally used
in the kitchen. For a special gift, cover a box with an antique style of
paper, add a pretty puff topped with a fancy bow.
Variations: An especially nice powder can be made by omitting any
fragrance from the recipe, and adding 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to the powder and 1-2
vanilla beans. Store in a tightly closed tin. Or, sprinkle a cup of rose
petals into the mixture, cover, and let the roses scent the powder. 24 oz
