This recipe is easy and takes only a few ingredients. It is also all natural and works great! Using an all-natural, chemical free deodorant allows your underarms to still sweat but neutralizes the bacteria that causes odor.
Your body and underarms are meant to sweat to remove toxins
from your body. Using antiperspirants and commercial deodorants prevent your
underarms from sweating, which prevents toxic materials from leaving your body.
This is especially important for breast health because much of our breast lymph
drains into our armpits to be removed by our sweat. If we are preventing this
drainage process, then we can clog and congest our breast tissue. Also, our breast tissue is made up of a
large percentage of fatty tissue, and toxins have an affinity for getting stuck
in our fat. It is a very important step in our health journey to stop using commercial beauty and body care products and to replace them with natural
products that are free of parabens, potassium aluminum sulfates, alum, phthalates,
petroleum, sodium laurel sulfate, and fragrances. These ingredients are
chemical based and congest the body and lymph system, preventing the body from
proper detox and drainage. Proper detoxification and drainage is essential to our optimal health!
Below is the recipe for homemade deodorant. If you do not wish to make your own, I have included a link that you can purchase your own natural deodorant that is similar to the homemade version.
7 TBSP Coconut Oil (melted)
¼ cup baking soda (if you have sensitive skin, you may use half the baking soda amount and replace it with the same amount of arrowroot or Organic GMO free cornstarch)
¼ cup arrowroot or Organic GMO free cornstarch
Essential oil of your choice- I like to add 3 drops of lemon essential oil, 3 drops of tea tree oil, and 3 drops of vetiver essential oil
*If you do not have any essential oils on hand, that is fine, it works perfectly fine without them
Mix baking soda and arrowroot or cornstarch in a bowl. Add in the melted coconut oil and essential oils of choice. Pour into small glass jars and may keep at room temperature. When ready to apply, rub in a pea size amount into each underarm. May reapply as needed.
