So, Melissa and I have been talking about how we'd like to stop using store bought deodorant/antiperspirant. We know we are protected children of God, however, why do we need to keep putting chemicals under our arms every day? I mean, didn't God design us to sweat? Preventing our bodies' ability to get rid of toxins and cool itself just doesn't seem that smart!
Obviously, no one wants to stink either or smell like a hippie soaked in patchouli oil!! So, I found a super easy recipe to try that several bloggers have sworn by! It might not work for 90 degree days in July, but hopefully it will for most days! I'll keep you all posted as I try it out!
1/4 C baking soda
1/4 C corn starch
6 TBSP coconut oil (I love this stuff)
I just warmed the oil a bit until it wasn't solid anymore, combined the dry ingredients, and then mixed it all together! It smells like the beach and should be really good for anyone with sensitive skin! I put it in a mason jar and use a tongue depressor to apply! Fingers crossed!
