Edible Deodorant

This is hands-down the best deodorant I’ve experienced. While it might taste terrible to eat, it’s made from ingredients that are safe to so you can feel good about having it on your skin. Baking soda kills odor-causing bacteria and gently exfoliates your skin. The arrowroot draws out toxins and the coconut oil and aloe vera are antioxidant, antibacterial and healing. Choose essential oils that help to energize, calm and nourish your soul.

  • 1 T baking soda
  • 6 T arrowroot
  • 2 T + coconut oil
  • 1 T aloe vera {optional}
  • 20 – 30 drops essential oil {lavender, lemongrass, vanilla, etc.} {optional}

Slice your aloe vera leaf {if using} down the center longwise and gently scrape juice out with a spoon. Make sure to mix powders well before adding oil and aloe. Add enough oil to make a paste. If you find the coconut oil makes your deodorant too solid in cold weather, you can switch 1 t coconut oil for grapeseed or other liquid oil. Add essential oils to your liking.

Apply with your fingers and rub in a circular pattern. This also helps stimulate your lymph nodes {located in your underarms and inner thighs} which boosts your immune system.

If you have a reaction to the baking soda {redness or rash}, you may need to adjust the ratios or pulse the powders in the blender or food processor to make sure the powders are dispersed and you don’t have pockets of pure baking soda.
