A few years ago I decide to start using deodorants that does not contain Aluminium. I was not keen on applying this mineral under my arms, particularly as there are lymph nodes there. I tried so many different brands and a lot of them had other added things it it, such as perfume or very low quality essential oils. I simply wanted to know exactly what was in it. So I decided to start making my own with beautiful therapeutic, pure grade essential oils that also have a positive impact on your body.
It is so easy to make a natural deodorant and the best thing is that you can add your favourite essential oils.
Here is a simple recipe on how I made this deodorant.
- 2 1/2 tbsp Certified Organic Coconut Oil
- 2 1/2 tbsp Shea Butter
- 1/4 cup arrowroot
- 1 1/2 tbsp baking soda
- 6 - 8 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
- 6 - 8 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
- 1 - 2 drop os Tea Tree Essential Oil
Start by melting the Shea butter and then add the coconut oils and let it melt together. Once it's melted, add arrowroot and baking soda and then the essential oils. Put it in a glass jar and then in the fridge until hardened.
So simple to make! You can watch the video below and make sure you subscribe to our Youtube channel so you get updated when I post more Health, Wellness and Essential Oils Tips.
