Why do I make my own deodorant?
Commercial deodorant contains dangerous chemicals like: aluminum chlorohydrate, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, TEA, DEA, FD&C colors, talc and more and is very bad for your health. Commercial deodorant can cause: cancer, Alzheimer’s and allergic reactions.
Making your own deodorant is very easy and you only need 2 ingredients:
- organic coconut oil
- your favourite essential oil (I use lavender)
When I get up in the morning, I simply get a fingertip of coconut oil, I rub it in my hands so it melts and I add 2-3 drops of lavender oil. I rub it in my hands again so the lavender mixes with the coconut oil and apply it on my armpits. It’s that easy!
If you want to take your homemade deodorant with you, you can make as much as you want and store it in a little stainless steel container for example.
