I made the transition to less toxic deodorant a few years ago, but last week, I took a much bigger step and made my own. After trying almost every store bought “natural” deodorant on the market, I consulted with my trusty health coach friends. We came to the consensus that no natural deodorant actually works. I have seen reviews like this that are helpful, but as a regular crossfitter I need something that I can count on working and lasting all day. Nathalie Fraise of Vanille Verte tested several recipes and we made the winning combination together, each adding our own essential oil preferences.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons baking soda
- 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
- 2 teaspoons probiotics powder (use two capsules or purchase in the bulk section)
- 10-20 drops essential oil of choice (I used GenesisPURE organic eucalyptus, lemon and lavender)
Choose your essential oils and add 10-20 drops. Mix with a spoon and then allow to cool or harden in the refrigerator.
To use, scoop a small amount out with your index finger and apply a thin layer to underarms. Let it soak in for a few minutes.
And there you have it, my first do-it-yourself, non-toxic recipe! Let me know if it passes your test?
