A fresh new idea

I have been wanting to share this 'recipe' with you for some time. This isn't the edible kind but it's easy to make and will transform your life. I'm not exaggerating, I swear!

What is it?

It's homemade deodorant. My friend Kirsten is a very talented nutritionist and recommended it to me and I was amazed when I tried it. It's really simple and you can pick up most of the ingredients from your local health food shop, supermarket or ethnic store. 

Here's how to make it:

Take 2 parts Coconut Oil and 1 part Bicarbonate of Soda (aluminium free is best if you get your hands on it). Put them in a jar and mix together. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature but it melts at body temperature. It'll moisturise your skin and it works so well - by far the best natural deodorant I've used. What's more, if you want to add your favourite blend of essential oils, you can. 

Stay fresh!

  1. That sounds great! The women in my family use coconut oil with flower extracts a lot, but I've never heard of the baking soda/deodorant idea.
    So do you rub it in with your fingers or apply it some other way?
