It is hard to know what you are getting when you buy a product nowadays. All kinds of chemicals and toxins added for what? to make it last longer, or give it a certain scent? I have found most store-bought deodorants irritate me, and that is how I came to making my own DIY all natural deodorant.

When putting something on our skin, it is worse than ingesting it. When something is rubbed onto the skin, it is absorbed into the bloodstream without any filter. Whereas when we eat, it is broken down, and filtered out of the body.

 

Healthy Peace of Mind Ingredients Deodorant 2

The ingredients:

 

Step 1: Melt coconut oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, and shea butter in a double boiler on low heat (if you do not have a double boiler, I use a saucepan with a little water, and a metal bowl I set on top with the ingredients). Stir until all is melted

Step 2: Once all melted, remove from heat and whisk in arrowroot powder and baking soda. Once mixed, add the essential oils. Mix quickly, because the mixture does start to thicken and cool quickly.

Step 3: Pour into your empty deodorant containers and let sit until completely cooled (it takes a couple of hours).

Notes

*Essential Oil (You can add whatever oils you would like. I always like to do a mix of oils. Right now I am liking mixing 5 drops Tea Tree Oil and 10 drops <Insert Oil>. Another combo I like is 5 drops Tea Tree Oil, and 10 drops lavender. Tea Tree oil is a natural deodorizer, so I always like to use that and mix in another
