I started making my own deodorant, and I am in love with this new DIY!!
Most of the time aluminum plays an essential ingredient in manufacturing a deodorant. Deodorant containing aluminum kills the bacteria (which causes bad odor) and it controls sweat. However, during this process the aluminum makes a short-term coat over sweat pores. This way it affects the natural mechanism of sweating in the body. Using deodorant with aluminum can develop medical problems-affecting the lymph glands. Aluminum is absorbed in the cells of the body very easily and so, the body also tends to absorb the harmful compounds through deodorant.
Deodorant containing aluminum can be one of the causes of some harmful diseases such as-Breast cancer, kidney problems and Alzheimer’s disease.
Checkout this simple recipe:
3 tbsp Baking Soda
3 tbsp Cornstarch
1 tsp Bentonite Clay
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tbsp Shea Butter
1 tbsp Coco Butter
1 tsp Beeswax
1 tsp Vitamin E Oil
15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops Balance Essential Oil
5 drops Lime Essential Oil
1 drop Clary Sage Essential Oil
Combine all of your dry ingredients first.
Melt your butters and beeswax, I used a double boiler, but you can use a microwave.
Once all butters are melted, let cool for 5 minutes and add your Coconut Oil, mix together! Once combined add your Vitamin E oil and all of your Essential Oils.
Add all of your oils to your dry ingredients, add your deodorant to a glass jar, and let sit out over night before use. (Do Not place in the fridge)!!
(Remember to use PURE unadulterated oils for this so you don’t end up putting something else potentially harmful in your body) Go here for my company of choice!
Hope you enjoy this healthy DIY Natural Deodorant!!
If you are allergic to any of the dry ingredients, use less!!
