No comments yet

While Community Natural Foods certainly has plenty of options for all natural home and body products, sometimes it’s fun to make your own using Alberta Natural Products’ new Essential Oils! These recipes are not only easy to make, they’re also easy on the wallet and are customizable.

¼ cup coconut oil
2 tbsp arrowroot powder
1 tbsp baking soda
15 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops lemon essential oil
deodorant stick container

Heat the coconut oil in the microwave or in a pan on the stove top until it’s melted.
Remove from heat and mix in arrowroot powder and baking soda until smooth.
Drop essential oil into the mixture and mix to combine.
Pour the mixture into the deodorant stick container (make sure the bottom of the stick is at the bottom of the container).
Put in the fridge to harden overnight.
Once hardened, the deodorant is ready to use and can be kept in the bathroom.
