I’m always reading and trying to find new ways to get chemicals out of my house. If I can find a product that replaces a chemically laden one I’m going to either buy it or make it myself. That just happened with this diy deodorant recipe. After finding the recipe I quickly made it and feel in love with the feel and the smell of it. This is day 2 of using it and it’s working great so far. I’m, uh, very hard on deodorant. I need a strong one that works well. Which is why it’s taken me so long to try this one out. This one I made has a faint citrus scent that I love.
Check out the homemade deodorant recipe below.
- 5-6 tbs of coconut oil
- 1/4 c baking soda
- 1/4 c cornstarch
- 3 drops essential oil I used orange
- add baking soda and cornstarch together and mix. Add the coconut oil and mix with the baking soda and cornstarch. Stir in essential oils. Store in a container with a lid. Use a pea size and rub under the arms generously. Get too much? No problem just rub it on those problem areas like elbows, knees, etc.
Chemicals are in everything. There is no reason for most of it. Are you aware of the chemicals? I gave my cleaners a makeover to get a lot of unnecessary chemicals out. Check out my article on green cleaning recipes. My daughter made a lovely sugar scrub instead of buying one, and this one is all natural. Check out her sugar scrub recipe too. She’s also made her own lip balm. How about a make up cleaner that doesn’t use any chemicals? We all need that. Check out my review of the make up eraser and see how to take your make up off without chemicals too. Chemicals are often unnecessary part of our life. I’m trying so hard to do this small thing to help my family by getting the chemicals out of the house.
