I know that deodorant has a lot of bad stuff in it...mainly aluminum which can be considered a health risk. I've purchased a lot of different "all natural" deodorants and haven't had much luck with them. I have been seeing a lot of recipes to make your own so I picked one and so far am loving it! Here's the recipe (compliments of Plant Therapy's essential oil blog):
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (I used organic)
1/2 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Corn Starch
1-1/2 Tbsp Bees Wax
40 drops of Essential Oil (I used 15 Lavender/15 Lemon/10 Frankencense)
Slowly melt the coconut oil, baking soda, corn starch and bees wax over low heat until melted. Add your essential oil (mix well) and pour into deodorant containers. This filled 3 deodorant containers.
I can help you get started with doTERRA essential oils and for my deodorant containers, it was cheaper for me to go the the Dollar Tree and buy 3 deodorants. I emptied and cleaned them out...that worked great!
Side note: This was oily when I first applied it...but it soaked right in. Personally, I would rather have healthy stuff soaking into my body over chemicals any day!
I would love to hear how this recipe works for you if you'd like to share...
