DIY Natural Deoderant

So I have gotten into Essential Oils lately! Namely, DoTERRA essential oils (I do have my reasons for choosing DoTERRA and will blog about it soon)! And when I came across an all natural, easy recipe for making my own deodorant, I was thrilled! I’ve been wanting to stop using the antiperspirant I’ve been using half the time, and am excited to see if my newest recipe works!

The Recipe:
Fill 10ml roller bottle halfway with Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fill 1/2 of the remaining space with Citrus Bliss essential oil blend
And the rest with Lemon essential oil

My alterations:
Before adding the Citrus Bliss and Lemon oils, I added:
5 drops Purify (for it’s cleansing properties and ability to kill odors)
5 drops of Lavender (because I have very sensitive skin and get bumps under my arms after shaving)

First, I absolutely love the scent!!!! It’s so refreshing smelling!!! But then, I am a fan of anything citrus!

I will be posting updates as I test my new deodorant and would love to hear anyone else’s favorite deodorants, or deodorant recipes!
