In this article I will share with you how to create a wonderful, healthy & effective natural armpit deodorant, just by adding three pure & natural ingredients.
The three main benefits you can have by making your own natural deodorant are:
1st to shield and protect your health from the toxic chemical components that the conventional deodorants contain & not let them be absorbed anymore into your bloodstream,
2nd to treat and moisturize your skin as this recipe contains coconut oil which is known for its excellent moisturizing properties,
3rd to save money, as the packages you buy will be enough to make more than 4-5 jars of deodorant!
In the video below, you will see step-by-step the whole process of making your own DIY natural deodorant, with 3 simple & healthy ingredients. The process starts at 00.30.
But why do the conventional deodorants on the market are considered dangerous to our health & should be avoided? The reason is hidden into their ingredients… They usually contain the following toxic chemicals that you should avoid:
Aluminum, Parabens, Triclosan, Talc, Propylene glycol, Synthetic fragrances, Phathalates, TEA & DEA and more..
This natural deodorant is unisex and its smell is slightly tropical. It mostly smells coconut and if you need the fragrance of your choice, you could add a few drops of organic essential oils. For instance, you can add some drops of organic ylang ylang essential oil & you will get the most perfect tropical & sensual aroma ever!
The materials you will need are:
A glass or a recyclable plastic jar
Three tablespoons of gluten-free baking soda (and of course without aluminum)
Two to three tablespoons of arrow root powder
Two to three tablespoons of organic coconut oil, cold-pressed.
Where will you find the ingredients?
Usually in bio & organic stores that sell natural products.
Pour the three ingredients one after the other into your jar and stir well with the spoon until your mixture gets a creamy and velvety texture. Then let it solidify at room temperature or in the refrigerator and then apply a small amount gently to your armpit, enjoying the excellent aroma, the awesome texture and the duration of the result !!!!
It is amazing how just 3 pure natural ingredients can be so effective against perspiration. They do not clog the pores of the skin and the soda absorbs all the undesirable odors. The deodorant action of this natural deodorant in my case has lasted up to 48 hours! ♥
Arrowout is not mandatory. We only add it to better solidify the mixture and make it thicker.
The more soda we put the more effective the deodorant action will be. However, it is advisable not to exceed the recommended content of soda, as it may slightly irritate the skin.
Although in the beginning when spreading our natural deodorant to the skin it appears white, a few seconds later it becomes transparent & does not stain the clothes.
—- My final advice is to first make an allergic test on a small spot in your body, and if you do not get any irritation within 24 hours, then apply the deodorant with confidence. —-
Good luck with the recipe and please write to the comments section your thoughts!
