Antiperspirants have been linked to breast cancer, and ingredients such as parabens, aluminum, and pesticides can be found in almost all deodorant brands found at your local drugstore.
Using an all-natural deodorant is one of the most important switches you can make for yourself when changing to a natural lifestyle.
Shelf Life: 1 year
Benefits: Baking soda and arrowroot powder will limit sweating while allowing your underarms to breath.
Coconut and almond oil are both moisturizing and increase the skin’s elasticity and water retention capacity.
Tips and Tricks: This deodorant can separate in warmer temperatures. You can keep a spoon nearby so it can be stirred regularly, or you can keep it in the fridge.
Variations: Almond oil can be replaced by avocado oil, grapeseed oil, hemp oil, or another oil of your choice. We like the fresh scent of grapefruit, but any essential oil can be used here.
Level of Difficulty: Easy
