It's that time of year when life seems to get crazy with
family gathering's, gift shopping, meal planning, etc.
So don't "sweat" the holiday's......
by making your own deodorant :)
I have been using this homemade deodorant for a while and I love it!
A lot of store-bought deodorant's have aluminum in them
which is very bad for you.
The skin is the largest organ of the body and it absorbs all that you put on it.
So stop and think about what is going on and in you.
An interesting fact is that a lot of store-bought deodorant's cause you
to have perspiration problems and sweat stains.
I had someone who has a sweat problem try this homemade deodorant
and since this individual has been using it, the problem has vanished.
Anyway, enough of that......
Let's move on to how you make it :)
1/4 cup aluminum-free baking soda
1/4 cup cornstarch
5 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
5-10 drops of tea tree oil
10-15 drops of orange or other fragrant essential oil
you don't have to use a fragrance, just the tea tree oil is fine.
Mix all the ingredients together.
Store in a sealed container (glass is best)
or you can put it in an old deodorant bottle.
Store at room temperature.
If it gets too warm, it will turn to liquid because of the coconut oil.
If this happens, just place the container in the refrigerator to solidify.
You will need to use only a small amount of this.
