Today, nearly 100 100 products cosmetics (and everything we buy) is full of chemicals, some extremely harmful to our health. In the case of deodorant, it is important that it is a safe product, as in the underarm lymph connected to the breasts are, that if they are affected can trigger cancer.
In this post I teach to make homemade deodorants free of chemicals that could penetrate the skin , especially if they are used after waxing or shaving.
How to stick deodorant:
For this deodorant you need some of these ingredients:
Essential oils to your liking
To arm deodorant bars you can use muffin cups or use in packaging of a deodorant stick vacuum plastic. The amounts can bend them or reduce them according to size of deodorant you want to achieve.
Melt the beeswax and shea butter in a double boiler, then add the coconut oil, baking soda and essential oils to flavor. Mix well and pour into the mold, allowed to solidify and is ready for use.
Natural deodorant powder or cream:
Another variant is a natural deodorant of sodium bicarbonate and 6 parts of corn starch. Directly employs this mixture over the armpit to remove the smell of sweat.
If you prefer a more effective and convenient alternative to apply, you’ll need:
3 tablespoons of baking soda
3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons of shea butter
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil
First dissolved coconut oil and butter in a double boiler over medium heat. Add the arrowroot powder and baking soda, mix well, and finally add the optional essential oil.
Save this deodorant in a jar or in a vacuum vessel deodorant. Use it when it is completely solid.
Natural deodorant without sodium bicarbonate:
This recipe is suitable for those who have the driest skin. To realize need:
1/4 cup and 1 teaspoon of beeswax
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup of shea butter
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
5-10 drops of an essential oil
Shea butter mixed with coconut oil-bath first. When they are diluted add the arrowroot powder and essential oils chosen.
Let templar few minutes before moving on to the final bottle.
Natural Deodorant Spray
An alternative is mixing water and sodium bicarbonate. A spray bottle filled with distilled water with some baking soda, mix well and add the flavoring oils.
Always remember to shake the bottle before use.
For those who have sensitive skin, it is best not to use baking soda, so the choice of deodorant spray is with witch hazel and colloidal silver. Part of colloidal silver with two parts of witch hazel is mixed, and you can also add flower water (hydrosol) and essential oils.
Deodorant magnesium oil
Simply mix some magnesium oil with a few drops of an essential oil. Unlike traditional spray oils, this need to rub smoothly into the skin after application.
