Welcome to the Trash is for Tossers YouTube channel brought to you by Lauren Singer!
In this video you will learn to make Zero Waste Deodorant using arrowroot powder, baking soda, coconut oil, shea butter, and essential oils which is a great alternative to deodorant from the store. It is organic, vegan, free of toxic chemicals, and package free.
BUT OHMAGOSH IF THIS DEODORANT DOES NOT WORK FOR YOU PUH-LEAZE DO NOT GIVE UP ON NATURAL DEODORANT! TRY AGAIN!
I can not emphasize this enough. There are so many toxins in conventional deodorant and, again, everyone’s body is different. So if this recipe does not work for you, try another recipe. Play with the amount of each ingredient, leave ingredients out, change the essential oil, and most importantly, give your body time to adjust.
I recommend testing each ingredient on your wrist to ensure there are no allergic reactions (for instance, some people do not react well to baking soda). If that is the case, leave it out. Also, if you shave your underarms, like with any deodorant, it is best to wait a few minutes before applying.
Check out all of the videos on my channel to find DIY recipes, Zero Waste tips, and sustainability tricks in order to live a waste-free or low-waste life.
