Homemade Whitening Toothpaste

Homemade Whitening Toothpaste

Circulation coordinator Christy Rice puts a homemade deodorant recipe to the test. Don't throw your deodorant out though, just reheat it and add more of the other ingredients without adding more essential oils. The key to the new version of this recipe is to make sure the beeswax is completely melted into the coconut oil before adding the other ingredients. I was just wondering if this would be good to use with a young child (2.5YO) - I'm just not sure whether the baking soda would be too abrasive for milk teeth. The shea butter will be the next one I try, but if beeswax works for you, I'll go for it too. It was probably the baking soda that caused the intense burning sensation I had the first night (after applying it directly after shaving). I have made a similar deodorant that I continue to tweek for the past few years. This time I used lavender essential oil but will have to make something more manly" smelling although my wife loves using this.

A key ingredient in clean deodorant, baking soda can be used on its own for a simple doedorant as a paste made with water. The obvious reason to choose gel deodorant over those in a stick form is the residue left behind. Remember that at room temperature the deodorant will be soft (which I prefer,) but if you want it to be more solid, store it in the fridge.

When it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical or heavy metal, the clay will absorb the toxin and release it's minerals for the body to use. Generally, if you see mold, mildew, or an unwelcomed odor, it's time to toss the homemade natural deodorant product. I can't remember the scent, but it's the only natural deodorant that I used for a decent amount of time. I'll provide two ways to make this: Stick form, which is more labor-intensive, and a simple paste, in case your skepticism requires you try it out first. All of these natural deodorant and antiperspirant methods probably won't work as well as your favorite commercial brand deodorant. Only glass is safe, but I do like using the muffin paper and just using the deodorant as a brick". I haven't had any problem with any oil marks, though, so I'm really pleased with that.

Instead, I do about half the amount of tea tree/melaleuca essential oil and add two of my favorite scents: lemongrass and grapefruit essential oils. Unless someone has an allergy to alcohol, using it as a deodorant is safe for adults and young adults alike. I had a friend tell me recently that she's just been using baking soda and a tiny bit of water to make a paste and put it under her arms in the mornings and that's been working great for her. I've been using this homemade deodorant ever since I got home from the US last month. In a small sauce pan, heat the butter and wax on low just until they're melted.

It is baking powder that you need to watch out for and only buy aluminum-free versions, but baking soda is simply sodium bicarbonate and has never contained aluminum. EHow has several different recipes for the do-it-yourself deodorant - you can either simply dab it on or boil it down with some cornstarch and beeswax and create your own stick. Unlike traditional antiperspirants, natural deodorants are usually made without aluminum, parabens and phthalates, which are ingredients that can be found in your common stick of deo.

I would love to make my husband deodorant but when I made the probiotic deodorant version for myself, it didn't harden that well. I tried arrowroot powder and beeswax in my recipe and it broke me out like crazy-I think I'm allergic to beeswax, as weird as that sounds. Pour it into a small glass jar with a lid, or, if you're using an empty deodorant container , wait until it's cooled down a bit but still runny. While it's not that common, there are people with a specific sensitivity to baking soda-based products, causing skin irritation after regular use, according to Murphy. Then mix the soda and the cornstarch together and slowly add the coconut oil until it forms a thick paste. You may have to wait a few days before a natural deodorant begins to work on your body.

I had this post at Passionate Homemaking bookmarked since December, but I didn't have bulk coconut oil until I found this deal at Soaper's Choice At that point, it was time to make a real mimicked deodorant by adding coconut oil to the baking soda and cornstarch mixture.

Any deodorant can cause irritation or discomfort, but stick forms appear to have a higher rate of this because of their thickness, which can clog the pores and give your skin the inability to breathe. Some people like to use tea tree oil in their recipes for its anti-fungal properties, but I found the scent to be much too strong. Over the years, I've tried so many different natural homemade deodorant recipes, but all of them were either ineffective, irritating to my skin, or just plain too messy to use daily for the rest of my life. Make your own whitening toothpaste at home using baking soda, coconut oil, and xylitol. Natural homemade recipes and/or off-the-shelf brands are the way to go. You should be very cautious about purchasing any skin products that contain aluminum or parabens. Stir occasionally until the beeswax melts, and to make sure everything is mixed evenly.
