Hey loves! Anyone else ever get stinky armpits?
I had not until I moved to Phoenix, AZ. And then an entire new world came into play.
Then I learned that a lot of the mainstream deodorants are full of toxic chemicals. Who wants that? Not this gal! I know what I put in and on my body influences my wellness journey. After doing some research, I decided that I needed to find a safer alternative for me and my family.
I also found this really great app, Think Dirty, that lets you know how “dirty” a product is. It is constantly surprising me at how nasty products are. We did try several of the natural deodorants that you can buy. However, the one I make at home works best for us. Therefore, DIY is the answer for most of the products I use with my family.
Here is the recipe that I like to use. Though I know there are several out there.
What you will need (make organic if possible)
- 2.5 Tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 Tablespoons of arrowroot powder
- 1 Small glass container
- 1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
- 5 drops of essential oil of choice
Mix all the ingredients together. Smooth a small amount onto your armpit. And feel smooth and fresh. 🙂
Let me know what variation you use or what is your favorite natural deodorant. Have a beautiful day!!
