DIY Deodorant

Did you know that chemical deodorant is thought by some to be one of the most harmful products in most of our homes? It contains aluminum. Some scientists suggest that aluminum applied near the breasts can cause breast cancer. Scary stuff. So WHY are we putting this right near our lymph nodes?? Right!?

Did you know that you can use several of the oils in your Young Living Premium Starter kit to make your own homemade deodorant?

Here's how it's done. Easy peasy!

Sit a small glass jar in a pan of boiling water with just enough water to come up about 1/2 way up the jar.
Melt 2 tbsp shea butter and 3 tbsp coconut oil over VERY low heat until just melted. 
Remove from heat and add 3 tbsp baking soda and 2 tbsp cornstarch. 
Stir until smooth.
Add 10 drops lavender, 10 drops purification and 10 drops Frankincense. 
Pour into glass storage container and refrigerate until solid. Apply to underarms.
