Today Ren and I spent the day making natural deodorant to keep you smelling fresh but without putting all those nasty chemicals in your body.
For many years now the both of us have been trying different store bought natural formulas, and so we thought we would give it a go ourselves. This way know exactly what goes in it, and we can customise our own scents using organic essential oils.
Using natural deodorant is so important as all leading commercial brands are known to include carcinogenic chemicals along with many other nasties. So its time to quit the Sure and Dove and get on the good stuff...
Know whats in your deodorant:
- Organic tapioca starch
- Organic bi carb of soda
- Organic coconut oil
- A selection of organic essential oils
- A dark glass pot with lid
- Sticky label
Combine equal amounts of bi carb of soda and tapioca starch, then add coconut oil (warm it up in hot water if it's solid) until you reach a desired consistency. It shouldn't bee too cakey, but slightly runny. Keep in mind that the coconut oil will solidify. Add 10 drops your choice essential oil. Et voila!
