To avoid toxins on your skin, you can make your own deodorant.
Easy DIY Deodorant
- 1/2 cup coconut oil*
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup arrow root
- 10 or more drops essential oils ** of your choice (optional)
Mix baking soda and arrowroot powder. Add coconut oil and blend until smooth. Add your choice of essential oils, blend again.
Store in a jar or fill an empty plastic deodorant dispenser.
* I use Refined Coconut Oil. Vitacost sells an odorless, flavorless refined coconut oil that can be used for body care without the overwhelming coconut scent.
