Weigh out the zinc oxide, arrowroot powder, magnesium stearate, pink clay, and yellow mica into a small container.Give the ingredients a good mix before transferring them into a mortar and pestle or coffee/spice grinder.
Grind the powders in the mortar and pestle to remove any lumps and to give them a nice smooth consistency. Update: I now use a small coffee bean/spice grinder for this, it combines the powders better.
Add the brown oxide in tiny amounts, grinding them in until you reach your desired color for your skin tone. I like to check the color/tone by rubbing a small amount on the inside of my wrist as I go. The brown oxide can sometimes be difficult to blend into the other powders, especially if it is a bit coarse or grainy. This will usually be noticeable when you are checking the color on your skin. If you do have dark smudges of brown when rubbing the powder on to your skin. Pressing the powder through a small coffee grinder or tea sift will usually solve the problem.
Once you are happy with the color and consistency of the powder, it's time to add the jojoba oil and essential oil if you are using it. Mix these in well until they are fully cooperated into the powders.
1 gram Jojoba Oil, 4 drops Orange Essential Oil
If you havent used a grinder, sieve into a beaker to make sure everything is well incorporated,
