Homemade Deodorant (Gentle Lavender)


One of the first things I did after I adopted a real food diet was turn over all the body care products in my bathroom to read the ingredients.  Holy chemicals, batman!

I mean, if we don’t want to eat crap them why would we ask our skin to drink it.  As one of the largest organs we have, our skin is great at absorbing.  Unfortunately it takes in the good with the bad.

If you’re not a DIY-er you might just want to purchase a few of these all natural deodorants to have on hand for your family.  But, if you want to save a few bucks and make your own homemade deodorant for just a few pennies, you’ll love this recipe below.  I like experimenting with different essential oils.

The great thing is that they last a long time because you only need a tiny bit.

  3. Transfer to appropriate container, like this one.
  4. Enjoy!
