DIY Deodorant: Ditch the aluminium!!
Super-easy, absolutely toxinfree and it really works!!
Just be honest, the first time you read the phrase “homemade deodorant” you laughed, right? Do you still think that deodorants should only come from the drugstore? That’s right, if you want to have breast cancer or alzheimer. We tell you how to make you own deodorant, that is cheap and really works.
Why Use Natural Deodorant?
Of course, conventional deodorants smell good and work great, but at what price? If you don’t mind infusing your armpits with cancer causing aluminum or parabens, just crack on as normal.
Many ingredients used in deodorants are toxic!
– Aluminum: It’s a metal which has been linked to breast cancer in women and increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease
– Parabens: This chemical is found in so many cosmetic products. It can disrupt our hormonal balance and is linked to birth defects and organ toxicity.
– Propylene glycol: Can cause damage to the central nervous system, liver, and heart.
– Phthalates: Another class of chemicals that have been linked to a variety of health issues including birth defects.
– Triclsoan: This chemical is actually classified as a pesticide by the FDA and a probable carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency.
You have already looked for a more natural option? Then you may have noticed that the pickings are rather slim. There are a lot of natural deodorants out there, but most of them don’t work well.
This recipe REALLY works and is super-healthy.
What you need:
– 1/2 cup coconut Oil: Antibacterial and soothing
– 2 tablespoons baking soda: Fights odor
– 2 tablespoons cornstarch: Antiperspirant
– 10 drops essential oil (We recommend tea tree oil, patchouli, rosemary oil or lavender oil): Adds fragrance
How to do it:
1. Melt the coconut oil.
2. Add baking soda and cornstarch. Mix it thoroughly until it gets a paste.
3. Add a few drops of essential oil.
4. Then pack it into an old deodorant tube (You can also store it in a glass jar und use your fingertips).
5. Let it cool until it gets hard. That’s it!
NOTE: It may be best to refrigerate your deodorant since coconut oil has a low melting point.
