Day 12 of the 365 Day Green Home Challenge...

   For today's Green Challenge I am making Homemade Deodorant...Yes you heard it will you give up your anti-perspirants?? Well to tell you the honest truth...anything that has been invented to stop one from perspiring is really not good for the body and can be potentially unsafe. Not only is your body meant to perspire, but also it is through these pores that your body rids itself of impurifications and toxic substances that enter the body, also your body temperature is regulated by its ability to perspire. If you would like to know more about this I suggest you do a little research on line and see for yourself.
     Now body odor is another story altogether...I am all for deodorizing oneself, but instead of putting unnecessary chemicals on our body that can seep into our pores and wreck all kinds of havoc on our internal systems, we can find natural ingredients that work just may take you a bit to find the right blend of essential oils that work best with your body chemistry...


1/4 to 3/8 cup baking soda
1/4 to 3/8 cup cornstarch
5 tablespoons coconut oil
Essential Oils (I used cedarwood, teatree, and vanilla)

Blend all ingredients a little online research to make sure the Essential Oils you use are safe for skin and also it is good to try a little on the wrist to make sure that you do not have a reaction.
I've saved up all of my used deodorant roll up plastic bottles to be refilled...Use a spoon to put deodorant batter into bottle and push down well....It may seem as if it is not thick enough...just place in the fridge for several minutes and it will become nice and solid. So give it a try Greenie Babies...I would love to have some feedback on this one...

Love and Light,
