We made this to be not only great to smell, but by adding pure ground lavender & chamomile we give you those benefits well documented for these two flowers – besides mosquitoes and most bugs hate lavender. I use it on our dog’s bed because fleas also hate lavender and it leaves Abby with a nice lavender smell. NO TALC – just pure tapioca starch (wheat free), ground lavender and arrowroot – organic of course. We’ve also added a therapeutic blend of 100% essential oils for aromatherapy purposes. You can use this for your linen closet, sprinkle on your sheets and for a great after bath powder – a little goes a long way. Take a look at our Blissful Baby Lavender Silk Powder as well – this is a blend of natural ground chamomile and lavender.
