Little babies are most of the time in diaper & every time I change my baby’s diaper I need to apply some talc, so I decided to use home made talc, which is fragrant as well.Coz talc is the only product used very frequently on babies & I heard a lot about harms of talc.

Lemon grass essential oil
I take baking soda & add few drops of lemon grass essential oil in it .It is still in powder form even with essential oil added, so you can easily use it.
Put it in jar or old talcum bottle or baby’s puff box & dab it whenever you need. It worked well but for a short while & I had to reply it, but that’s fine with babies as I have to reapply talc every time I change her diaper , when i am dressing the baby after bath & when taking her on walk.
It didn’t work for long on underarms when my baby is perspiring a lot (coz she runs a lot) & it also leave some stains on her dark clothes. I also tried this on my under arms & it worked quite well till evening, which is not bad but not on those days when I am perspiring a lot.
Why baking soda:
It will help in keeping skin dry & itch free
Baking soda absorbs both moisture & smell.
However, I have noticed it didn’t work for long on underarms when my baby is perspiring a lot & it also leave some stains on her dark clothes. It was slightly rough for skin & due to this reason I tried one more DIY/home made talc that I will share with you all soon.
Have you tried this? Then please share your experience.
