Yesterday I got called out again by The Show for smelling like BO. A few years ago I learned how bad some deodorants can be for your body. Putting heavy metals on my skin to get absorbed into my body....no thank you. When I first discovered this I made the switch to "all natural" deodorant that you can buy in the store. All that did was made me smell like fruit and BO mixed together. Then I tried some crystal thing that you rub on your pits.....still smelled. Finally we hit last winter and I decided to f***-it and just went no deodorant. This was fine during the winter but once it started to heat up a bit the BO was back in force. It go so bad that The Show shamed me into wearing deodorant at work M-F. Lame, but I did it for the comfort of my co-workers.
Starting today no more heavy metals in the pits for this girl!!!! Yesterday the hubby and I made some homemade deodorant. I had seen this recipe on some hippy websites and then my friend Laura told me she gave it a try and it worked great. I am interested to see what The Show thinks and if they prefer my new coconut smell to that of my BO.
All Natural Deodorant Recipe -
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Baking Soda
1/4 cup Arrowroot or Cornstarch
Essential Oils (optional if you want a scent other than coconut)
Mix together till smooth. Keep in jar on your counter and apply with big make-up brush or sponge. Or empty out old deodorant container, fill with your creation and keep in fridge for more solid consistency.
