Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I found a recipe for deodorant. It works quite well and the best thing is that I know for sure there are no harmful chemicals.

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup corn starch
A few drops essential oil of your choice (Citrus Fresh works well)

Melt the coconut oil over low heat and stir in the other ingredients. Take an empty deodorant stick and screw it back down. Pour in the mixture and let it set up.

The corn starch absorbs moisture and the baking soda neutralizes odor. What more do you need?

Have fun
