I bet you are thinking why do I want to do that when I can just pick one up from the drug store for a couple of quid right?
Because when you buy any deodorant or anti-perspirant you are getting a lot more than you bargained for. Deodorants and Anti-perspirants contain fragrances, chemical compounds, parabens and aluminium. Though deodorants are the lesser of two evils because they work to neutralize the odour rather than anti-perspirants that work by using chemical compounds to completely block the pores and stop you perspiring all together. They are both extremely dangerous!
Many consumer groups are now voicing serious concerns over the possible dangers of the ingredients used in basic everyday health and beauty products. Especially the potential health risks associated with aluminium compounds found in many antiperspirants and also with parabens found in some deodorants. More serious is that both types of products have been linked to serious illnesses like breast cancer. Manufacturers of such products surprisingly say these claims are untrue.
We take the common sense approach, perspiring is one of the ways for body to eliminate toxins if that is blocked the toxins are going to remain inside. If you are using these products daily then the body is not able to perform this function obviously this is going to have adverse effects.
So now that’s out of the way here is what you will need:
1 tablespoon Organic coconut oil (melted)
3 tablespoons Bicarbonate of Soda (Aluminium & gluten free)
8-10 of Lavender, Tea Tree or essential oil of your choice
1 x small glass jar with lid
Leave the coconut oil in bowl inside a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes to melt. Then add the Bicarbonate of Soda to the coconut oil and mix very well, when it is well combined and you have a very thick mixture add your essential oil and mix again. Put in the fridge for about 4-5hours until it has completely solidified.
To use scoop half a pea sized amount or less and rub under your arms.
This is natural, healthy and even whitening for your pits. You will be amazed how powerful this is!
