Today I had some terrible news. A close friend who is so full of life, beautiful, vivacious and health wise has breast cancer. Diagnosed just a few days after her 36th birthday.
I have wanted to post this deodorant recipe for a while now, and I am prompted more than ever to share it with you. While technically not a food, it is a healthy and made from food grade ingredients.
There is no “proven” link between deodorant and breast cancer – or none that we would be privy to. Plenty of articles write about the connection and to me it makes sense. Toxic chemicals are seeping directly into a large clump of lymph and delicate tissue that is prone to metastasis day after day.
After a long trial of store bought natural deodorants I have been using this as my deodorant for almost 12 months and couldn’t be happier with the results.
Try it for yourself.
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder (also known as tapioca flour)
4 tbsp coconut oil
10 drops grapefuit essential oil (or any that takes your fancy)
Mix the ingredients and store in a tin or jar with a lid.
