Homemade Deodorant Recipe
Commercial antiperspirants contain a slew of toxic ingredients including antibacterial agents; artificial scents, talc, preservatives and aluminum just to name a few. What is worse is that these compounds act as a physical barrier for toxins in the sweat. This is a major elimination channel of the body and plugging it up with neuro-toxic chemicals is bad news for the body. But you can make your own at home, no sweat! (no pun intended) Here is my super simple recipe: Ingredients: 1-2 tbsp Baking Soda ¼ cup Arrowroot Starch 4-6 Tbsp Coconut Oil 20 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil 20 drops Lavender Essential Oil Directions: Stir together arrowroot and baking soda and add essential oils. Use a fork or spoon to mash coconut oil in.
