ESSENTIAL OIL 101 RECIPES: NATURAL Deodorant

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.

NATURAL DEODORANT

  • 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!
