Homemade Healing Baby Powder
The more I make Homemade recipes, the more I am amazed on how easy, less expensive they could be, comparing to the over priced chemicals, toxics loaded store bought products.
In addition to these positive properties, I really enjoy making them. I feel like I am doing my best for my kids and the environment. I remember the first time I bought baby powder with my first child I started sneezing as soon as put it on him, I immediately thought to myself; if I am sneezing what can this do to e few days old baby? Really, what can this do? According to some researches the talc powder found in most baby powders can lead to cancer.
Read what doctor Weil has to say about baby powder. It can cause cancer. Do you really want to put that on your first born after carrying him/her with care inside your womb? If really want to use baby powder here is a natural version that you can make at home and be guilt free.
