In case you couldn't tell by now, I love simple recipes that are just a few ingredients. I found a lot of recipes online for homemade deodorant, but almost all of them included beeswax or certain costly ingredients. I came across this recipe and adjusted the measurements for my personal use. I will often double or triple the recipe and place it in a closed pint-sized mason jar to store it. I love using this deodorant because I can actually smell the essential oil mixed in it all day long. I just use a spoon and scoop out a very small bit of it for daily use. A little bit goes a long way! My next project will be to make a deodorant spray for this busy, on-the-go days.

* I only use Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils because of their high purity. Many essential oils on the market today are adulterated and are not put through a Seed to Seal process that Young Living lives by. I highly recommend these essential oils for their outstanding purity and also because, simply put, they really work. I began my journey two years ago with Young Living EOs and have never looked back. They are remarkable!
