Natural Deodorant

Okay, this posting is a little bit off topic, but I can't resist.

Haven't you ever wondered what all of those ingredients in antiperspirants are doing to your body? Have you ever thought about what it means to your body to "clog up your sweat glands?"

Well, there is a more natural way to deal with sweat. The website wellnessmama.com has a number of natural deodorant recipes. You can check them out here:

Here is the recipe of hers that I like. It is very basic, very simple, and very effective.

3T Coconut Oil
2T Baking Soda
2T Corn Starch

If the coconut oil is too solid, soften it up in a microwave. Put the softened oil into a small bowl.

Add the baking soda and corn starch to a strainer. Sift it into the coconut oil while stirring.

Put the resulting mixture in a jar with a screw lid. When you are ready to use, dab your finger in the mixture, give it a stir to keep the baking soda and cornstarch in suspension,and put a small amount under your arms and rub it in. You don't need much, so start with a small amount and use more if needed.
