If you’re reading this, I’m sure you’ve tried your fair share of natural deodorants that don’t really work that well. After years of searching (unsuccessfully) for the perfect non-toxic deodorant, I finally decided to try making it myself! I was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s very simple to make (only 4 ingredients), and it actually works!
All you will need is:
- 2 tbsp aluminum free baking soda
- 2 tbsp organic arrowroot powder
- ~ 6 tbsp tbsp vegetable glycerine
- 15 drops lavender essential oil (or your essential oil of choice)
Stir the ingredients together in a small glass mason jar, adding the essential oil at the end. I like to use an immersion hand blender to make sure that it is really mixed well. The consistency should look like this when everything is blended together:
If the consistency is too solid, add more vegetable glycerin until it is smooth. Vegetable glycerin is very hydrating for you skin, so always add more if you find the recipe too dry.
This is a deodorant cream, and you will only need to use a very small amount under each arm. 1/8th to a 1/4 of a tsp should do the trick. This is the only natural deodorant I have found that actually works – all day long!
Always make sure you’re using the most pure essential oils… After all, anything that goes on your body, should be good enough to go in your body. This is why I choose to use and share Young Living essential oils, over any other oil company – they are the most pure essential oils in the world! Read more about their Seed to Seal quality here.
