Homemade Deodorant

Store bought deodorants are full of harmful chemicals that you shouldn't be putting on your body. I swear that I used to stink & sweat MORE when I was using store bought deodorants. This homemade version is amazing! My whole family uses it. You can buy empty deodorant containers from Amazon. This batch makes about 6 deodorants.

1 c. coconut oil, melted
3/4 c. aluminum free baking soda
1/2 c. food grade diotemaceous earth
1 c. cornstarch
15 drops on guard oil
15 drops purify oil
15 drops melaleuca oil
15 drops lavender oil
15 drops lemon oil

Whisk together coconut oil, baking soda, DE, & cornstarch. Once it's combined, add your essential oils. Pour into empty deodorant containers and place in the refrigerator until set.

Homemade Conditioner

This is VERY thick and hydrating. I recommend using shampoo to get your hair clean, then use this conditioner & let it soak in for a few minutes, then shampoo again or your hair will be oily from the coconut oil.

1 c. coconut oil, melted
1 t. vitamin E oil
1 t. sweet almond oil
10 drops lavender essential oil

Homemade Shampoo

I put this in a foaming soap dispenser bottle. Works so much better than store-bought shampoo and it doesn't have any chemicals! I use Dr. Bronner's Orange soap.

1/4 c. filtered water
1/4 c. coconut milk
1/2 c. Dr. Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap
20 drops essential oils (I like orange, but you could also use peppermint or lavender)
1/2 t. sweet almond oil
