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!

Birthing surprise

Before I gave birth to my first child I had clear skin and glossy hair naturally without ever having to do anything other than wash and go. My first child was the beginning of things going wrong, but after my second child…things took a turn for the worse. My gorgeous long hair began to fall out in bunches daily, my skin broke out in burning hot rashes all over my arms, and my fingers. On my face and across my eye developed a scaly, itchy rash which would keep me up at night wanting to scratch my face until it was raw. Doctors and skin specialists had no idea what it was and there was nothing that could stop it or get rid of it. To top it all my much loved make up and beauty products made the rash worse, much worse.


Do the research

I battled with myself not to wear make up for a few months in the hope the rash on my face would disappear and it did. But I didn't feel myself when I went out of the door without make up. After all I had worked with make up for many years and it was a huge passion of mine.


So I started to research the ingredients in this stuff to see if I could buy make up without the ingredients that irritate skin. The results were upsetting as I discovered that for years, actually centuries women had been sold beauty products that contained everything from comedogenic and irritating oils, minerals, salts, alcohol, parabens, waxes and worse dangerous lead in lipsticks


From cosmetic brands to natural alternatives

Still, I needed make-up, I loved make-up! So I decided to go back to wearing it but there would be a compromise. I would replace all my cosmetics with a natural or organic alternative


Natural and organic

Years later I only use natural or organic products and have found wonderful, cutting edge make up and beauty products that are safer, more affordable and I want to share my findings with you!
