Making your deodorants and perfume allows you to blend your favorite scents to develop a signature perfume all your own.
Here is a natural deodorant recipe that I have been playing around with
3 Tbls rosemary antioxidant in olive oil
3 Tbls arrowroot
2 Tbls baking soda
2 Tbls kokum butter
1 Tbls Beeswax
1/2 Tsp emulsifying wax
4 small gells of vitamin e
essential oils (tea tree) I used 20 drops but you can use less for sensitive skin
Tea Tree may be the hands-down most popular antibacterial essential oil. Lavender essential oil is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory (AND stress reducer, especially for kids), and is helpful in the healing of small burns, cuts, and insect bites, don’t use if pregnant. When more serious antibacterial action is necessary, natural medicine professionals turn to Oregano essential oil. Also a highly-regarded antibacterial, but with gentler action and scent, a Geranium essential oil is a very worthwhile addition to the home medicine chest. The ‘old stand-by’ of Lemon should not be overlooked when searching for ways to convert your home to a healthy ‘green’ lifestyle. My Personal favorite yet it is a little pricey is Rose Otto, Rosa damascena, also known as Damask rose. I discovered this little less known antibacterial from my travels to Turkey. they are the main producer with approximately 10,000 tonnes of flowers grown annually for essential oil production. It is anti-inflammatory and cooling to skin conditions such as rosacea, tones capillaries, and fights to age with antioxidants. I currently get my rose absolute from lalaessentialoils.com
Preparation for Natural Deodorant
microwave in a glass measuring cup for 30 seconds and stir. If not melted microwave for 15-second intervals until blended. Warm and fused liquid suspension is what you want. Don’t microwave too long or hot you don’t want to burn off the essential oil of rosemary extract.
ONLY add essential oils and vitamins after heating. Store in a cool place, I use my refrigerator.
What deodorants have aluminum?
Aluminum isn’t normally found in deodorants. Most antiperspirants, on the other hand, do contain aluminum. Two-in-one products — meaning they’re both a deodorant and an antiperspirant — will also include aluminum. Aluminum from antiperspirants may build up in breast tissue after years of use. Aluminum does have the ability to disrupt your endocrine system, but there’s no scientific evidence to show that aluminum from antiperspirants causes breast cancer. More research is needed.
