DIY DEODORANT

Making your own body friendly, aluminum-free, deodorant is easy and fun. You will need  1/3 cup coconut oil (solid state), 1/4 cup baking soda (aluminum-free), 1/4 cup arrowroot powder ( you can find this in the baking section of any grocery or health food store) , and of course my favorite…essential oils (optional). Mix the baking soda and arrowroot powder in a glass bowl.

Add the solid coconut oil (do not warm or melt it) and use a fork to thoroughly blend it into the dry ingredients. Add 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oils and blend completely. Deodorfab!

This would be perfect for those patients, just skip any heavily scented essential oil. This is a great tip I’ll be passing on for sure!
