🌿Simple Earth and Clay Deodorant Recipes


Diatomaceous Earth

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of our food grade Diatomaceous earth

  • 3/4 cup of **natural starch powder

  • 1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil [softened]

  • 10-20 drops of essential oil [optional]

  • non-metal bowl

  • non-metal fork/spoon/spatula

  • non-metal container

Directions

In a non-metal bowl, with a non-metal fork/spoon/spatula, mix the ingredients together until smooth. Using your non-metal fork/spoon/spatula, move the mixture over into a non-metal container for storage. I recommend you make sure your non-metal container stays in a cool place, so it doesn’t liquify [unless that's your preference]. To use your homemade deodorant, use two fingers to rub the mixture under your arms.

**Starch powders - "starch, a white, granular, organic chemical that is produced by all green plants. Starch is a soft, white, tasteless powder that is insoluble in cold water, alcohol, or other solvents." [britannica.com/science/starch]

Examples:

  • Arrowroot starch

  • Cornstarch

  • Tapioca Powder

  • Potato Starch


Non-metal = Do not use metal bowls or spoons with the clay or earth. Metal can ruin some of the healing properties. Go for plastic, wood, glass or any other nonmetal bowls/utensils.
