I hope you enjoyed your first video!  In this second video, I’m going to share all my secrets for smelling fresh and staying natural even when the pressure’s on!  Everything you wanted to know about deodorant!



For all you guys out there, I know that video was more woman-centered, but just keep in mind that we all have women we love and dudes can get Breast cancer, too.

 Make Your Own Deodorant:

My All-Natural High-Performance Deodorant

homemade deodorant3 T Raw Shea Butter (buy it here)
2 T Unrefined, Virgin Coconut Oil (buy it here)
3 T Baking Soda
2 T Arrowroot (buy it here)
10 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil (Buy it here)
6 drops Sweet Orange essential oil (Buy it Here)
or essential oils of your choice
In a double boiler, melt the Shea Butter and Coconut Oil.  Stir in the baking soda and arrowroot until combined.  Remove from heat and mix in the essential oils.  Pour into a small glass jar or empty deodorant container (I use these).  Allow to cool overnight or place in the freezer to speed up solidification.
To apply:  Scoop out a small amount in your hand and spread evenly over armpit until rubbed in and transparent.
*If you don’t have a double boiler, you may fill a small saucepan with an inch or two of water and bring it to a gentle boil.  Place a slightly larger bowl into the saucepan.
*Alternatively you could pour the final product into mini muffin tins, freeze for “pucks” of deodorant.

    This is great info E. I JUST bought deoderant, but next time, I’m going to use your recipe above. Would love for you to do a piece on sunscreen, as I have to wear it every day and even the good stuff has bad stuff. xoxo

      Thanks, Amy! I am actually working on a blog on sunscreen right now. Look for it in the next couple weeks. Because you are so right….even the good stuff has bad stuff! :-)
