I’m still a total newbie when it comes to essential oils and green/DIY beauty products. I purchased my Young Living Premium Starter Kit more than a month ago and I still feel a bit overwhelmed about how I’m going to do with ALL these oils.
Since some of you may be experiencing the same thing, I thought I’d share some of the easy recipes I’ve been trying with the oils in my kit.
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 10 drops Purification
- Mix ingredients (may need to melt coconut oil first, but it’s not necessary)
- Apply to arm pits with fingertips. Store in a glass container
NOTE: Natural deodorant isn’t typically an antiperspirant, like we’re used to with traditional products. You will still sweat (that’s a good thing… it’s your body’s natural way of getting toxins out of your body)! Good news – your sweat will smell lovely!
Thanks to Ann from Annie’s Simple Life for this recipe.
