Natural Deodorant Recipe.
There are some concerns about the relation between antiperspirants, deodorant and breast cancer. Antiperspirants contain parabens and aluminum these ingredients could potentially accumulate in the lymph nodes and create tumors. Parabens are used in many products also lotions and shampoos. Parabens have estrogen like qualities and these are absorbed into our skin. Parabens can build up in breast tumors a study made in 2004 shown. Even when some of the claims are not 100% proven, I would rather avoid these toxic chemicals. Instead you can follow this simple recipe! A good friend gave me this awesome natural deodorant formula. Half cup of baking soda Half cup of corn starch One cup of coconut oil Few drops of your favorite oil or essential oil, lavender, eucalyptus, etc... That is it! You may add little more corn starch if the mix is to liquid. Just pour it in a nice jar with a cover and use it instead your deodorant, this is not only healthier option is less expensive too :)
