Lavender, Lemongrass and Tea Tree Oil – Heavy Duty Deodorant spray
After the deodorant cream recipe from 2 weeks ago I’ve had some feedback from some of you that you do not want deodorant cream…
You want spray!!!
OK, so I googled a bit and made some experiments and I’m quite happy about it because I like this one better!
And this is it:
90ml Rose Water
15 drops lavender essential oil
30 drops lemongrass essential oil
5 drops tea tree essential oil
If you want it really heave duty, you can replace 30ml of the Rose water with apple cider vinegar but if you work in an air conditioned office you may not need it. Give it a try and find out, when you make if your self you can have it just the way you like it, don’t you?
You can play a bit with the essential oils though I do think this is a nice lovely scent but I wouldn’t omit the Tea Tree Oil.
This guy is making it a bit differently, more like the previous deodorant but he is soooo funny:)
Important note: Now I make my deodorant this way. I find it better because of the risk of blocking the pores and causing painful red lumps in the armpits. If you still prefer a solid deodorant you can try this one, might be good for you.
Natural deodorant is so easy to make, easier than making scrambled eggs and there is no cooking involved:
1/8 cup baking soda
1/4 cup corn starch or arrowroot powder
3/8 cup coconut oil
10-20 drops of you favorite essential oil blend – I like neroli which makes a lively scent when combined with coconut. Do not use cinnamon or clove as they can be irritating. People with very sensitive skin can use lavender or just omit the essential oil altogether.
Mix well in a bowl and put into a jar. Your DIY natural deodorant is ready and you have plenty of it. Use very little each time on dry skin.
