sample-post

There are so many different natural ways to deodorize one’s underarms or try to minimize sweat but the truth of the matter is that we need to sweat, it’s natural and it’s our bodies way of cooling us down.

I know there are people out there who sweat a lot and it can become a problem and sometimes embarrassing. Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can be a sign of thyroid problems, diabetes or infection. Excessive sweating is also more common in people who are overweight or out of shape. So if you do think you may have a medical condition the best thing is to get a medical diagnosis otherwise here are a few of the same but different natural ways to deodorize and sanitize our lovely arm pits.

Natural and Organic Deodorant

Ingredients:
4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons bi-carb soda
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
Your favourite Essential Oils

Instructions:
1. Melt your coconut oil and mix with the arrowroot powder and baking soda.
2. Add your essential oils and put mixture in a small glass jar.

How much essential oil you use is up to you. I love the dõTERRA range of oils  for their purity and strength and you will only need a few drops because of this. My favourite is Clarys Sage. I use it because not only do I love the smell but it is also a good hormone balancer and it’s herbaceous and spicy hay like scent is lovely and not over powering. Also the essential oil Cypress has been used through the ages for its deodorant properties. It is antibacterial, anti infectious, antiseptic and astringent oil and it also has a lovely herbaceous scent with evergreen overtones.

Natural and Organic Deodorant with Shea Butter

3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons melted shea butter
2 tablespoons bi-carb soda
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
Your favourite essential oils

Instructions:
1. Melt the coconut oil and shea butter in bowl over hot water
2. Add the bi-carb and arrowroot powder and stir in your essential oils.
3. You can pour the mixture into a clean but used deodorant container and then pop it into the fridge to harden.
4. Depending on the climate in your area you can keep the deodorant stick in the fridge so it stays hard.

Easy and Natural Deodorant

Ingredients:
Coconut oil
Essential oil

This is the easiest way to make a deodorant.

I keep a jar of coconut oil in the bathroom at all times. After a shower I just scoop a little of the coconut oil out with a clean spoon and massage my underarms with the oil until it is absorbed into my skin and then I dab a few drops of Clarys Sage oil under each arm. That’s it! No mess, no preparation, no worries.
