Make your own natural Deodorant

A few years ago I decide to start using deodorants that does not contain Aluminium. I was not keen on applying this mineral under my arms, particularly as there are lymph nodes there. I tried so many different brands and a lot of them had other added things it it, such as perfume or very low quality essential oils. I simply wanted to know exactly what was in it. So I decided to start making my own with beautiful therapeutic, pure grade essential oils that also have a positive impact on your body.
It is so easy to make a natural deodorant and the best thing is that you can add your favourite essential oils.
Here is a simple recipe on how I made this deodorant.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 tbsp Certified Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Shea Butter
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking soda
  • 6 – 8 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
  • 6 – 8 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • 1 – 2 drop os Tea Tree Essential Oil

Start by melting the Shea butter and then add the coconut oils and let it melt together. Once it’s melted, add arrowroot and baking soda and then the essential oils. Put it in a glass jar and then in the fridge until hardened.

So simple to make! You can watch the video below and make sure you subscribe to our Youtube channel so you get updated when I post more Health, Wellness and Essential Oils Tips.

Massage Oil

Massage Oil

It’s so easy to make your own Massage oil Blend. I though I will share one with you that I call the Swedish Blend. It’s relaxing, yet a happy and joyful blend.

My preferred Massage Oil / Body Oil is Jojoba as it’s so incredible good for the skin, but you can also use Almond Oil.

I add 3 drops of Cardamom Essential Oil and 3 drops of Orange Essential Oil in 100grams of Carrier Oil (Jojoba or Almond Oil).

 
Jojoba Oil regulates sebum production because it’s so similar to the sebum that your body produces naturally. When you put Jojoba on your skin, your skin is soothed and moisturized. … This keeps skin from looking oily and helps prevent acne caused by clogged pores.
 
I even put Jojoba oil on why face. It may seem counterintuitive to smear oil on your face, especially if you’re prone to breakouts, but Jojoba might actually make greasy skin better.  Jojoba is a great moisturiser for your skin all day long and it’s ideal for dry faces, too. 
Jojoba soothes skin as it has anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce redness caused by drying, ease the effects of rosacea and eczema. The vitamin E and B-complex vitamins in Jojoba help in skin repair and damage control.
 
Cardamom Essential Oil is uplifting, refreshing and invigorating and has numerous amazing properties, Orange essential oil brings peace and happiness to the mind and body and joy to the heart. Both these oils are Culinary oils as well. Keep in mind that Orange is a Photosensitive oil so don’t apply the oil to the skin and then go out in the sun. This can create discolouring of the skin. Make sure you read the instructions on the oils.
 
Have fun making your own Swedish Massage Oil / Body Oil.

Delicious Caramel Slice

Delicious Caramel Slice

I made my favourite nut free caramel slice for the last Wellness Retreat I held and also made some for my last workshop and the participants loved it!! It’s very sweet but has no white sugar so it’s a healthier alternative.
The second time I made it I added some Peppermint oil which I really loved but that is an option of course. If you are going to add the Essential Oil make sure you use the Young Living’s peppermint as this is a pure, therapeutic grade oil and it’s a culinary oil.

The Base is made up out 1 1/2 cups of plain activated buckwheat and 15 medjool dates. Just combine the who ingredients in a food processor. Keep mixing it until it’s evenly combined and so it’s sticking together when pressed. Then I press it into a lined 15 x 25cm tin and put it in the freezer for an hour or so.

After that I prepared the Caramel Layer which contains of 30 medjool dates, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 60ml water ( 1/4 cup water), 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder and a pinch of salt. I combine all these ingredients in a food processor and keep blending until it’s creamy and smooth. I then take the base out of the freezer and put this caramel layer on top and then return it to the freezer for doubt 4 hours.

I then prepare the Chocolate layer which contains of 100grams of cacao butter, 1/2 cup cacao powder, 1/4 cup maple syrup and 4 table spoons of coconut oil. I melt it over a double boiler and which is well.
The I take out the tin from the freezer and put the chocolate layer and return to the freezer for about 30 minutes. If you want to add a few drops of Peppermint oil – do it just before you our it on.

I return it from the freezer 30 minutes before slicing to allow the chocolate topping to thaw a bit. I slice it with a hot, sharp knife.

Delicious! Enjoy!
