As the summer season is gearing up, I thought I wouldshare a couple of recipes for natural deodorant andsunscreen.Young Living has 2 great deodorants, Mountain Mint andMeadow Mist. Lately, however, I have been making myown deodorant. It is quick to mix up a batch and thebest part is it works great. Note: This is a deodorant,NOT an antiperspirant. Sweating helps us get the toxinsout!
1/4 - 1/3 cup of coconut oil1/4 cup of baking soda1/4 cup of arrowroot powder (OR corn starch)5 - 10 drops of antibacterial essential oilMix the baking soda and arrowroot in a glass bowl. Addthe coconut oil and use a fork or pastry blender tothoroughly blend it into the dry ingredients. Add 5 - 10drops of essential oil and blend completely. Store in asmall jar. To apply, use your fingers to scoop out a pea-size amount of the deodorant and massage it into yourarmpits daily or as needed. Use care when putting ondark clothing or you may have a little white residue onyour garment.Several of the essential oils that are antibacterial are alsoantifungal. If you have a fungal infection in your body,you may experience a detox reaction manifesting inflaming red arm pits ("Pits of Hell"). That's Good! ; )Think of all the years you may have been usingdeodorants containing aluminum or parabens or havehad fungi circulating through your lymph system. If youhave sensitive skin, substitute baking soda and usearrowroot powder solely. You may also consider reducingand/or omitting any antifungal essential oils.
Hmm...Pits of Hell and white residue...I'll bet yourthinking homemade deodorant is not for you. Give it atry! You just might like it!
