DIY Deodorant

Soooo, Why????

It's easy peasy to make your own deodorant.

I had been going back and forth on this whole deodorant thing for a while. Is it good? Is it bad? Definitely knew it was a good thing when it came down to hygiene. But, why so many chemicals? I tried the deodorant crystal. Nope. Not a fan. I tried Tom's. Still not a fan. Sorry Tom. It just didn't do it for me.

I knew I had to make a change. I was totally finished with continuously adding synthetic chemicals to my body. So, I just went for it and stopped using store bought deodorant. I started using a mixture of baking soda and corn starch. Eeeh, better but boy was the transition a not so pleasant to the nose one. 

Then Came The Oils

I started playing around with my YL essential oils to come up with a blend that worked for me. This added a pleasing smell to the body. Still was a nice little transition while I was detoxing all of the synthetic chemicals. Once this process was finished I am able to use my deodorant cream (recipe below) and dust on the baking soda and corn starch mixture with confidence.

For Your Health

I highly recommend that everyone start making their own deodorant and STOP using synthetic chemical ridden deodorant. Your body will totally thank you!


Deodorant Cream

Plastic or glass container

3 0z of unrefined coconut oil

1/4 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil

4-6 drops of YL Lemongrass essential oil  ------antibacterial

4-6 drops of YL Lavender essential oil ------ soothing

4 drops of YL Melaleuca essential oil ------antibacterial

Blend together .......I usually sit my coconut oil out a head of time to soften.

After shower apply small amount to dry under pit.

Then dust a mixture of baking soda and cornstarch to armpit

Can store at room temperature. Warmer storage will result in the cream liquifying.
