NO-Aluminum, Non-Toxic, EASY, Natural, DIY Deodorant

Ever google “aluminum in antiperspirant”? It’s kind of scary what problems have been potential linked to clogging your sweat pores with aluminum for decades on end. But let’s be honest… I smell like a the bad end of an onion if I go with out and that’s a little bit of an issue too. While I am a bit crunchy I an not THAT crunchy. So, what’s a girl to do? Make my own!

I wanted to test this recipe for several weeks/months before bragging on it, but I am pleased to say that it is AMAZING! Everything I have ever wanted in a DIY/Natural deodorant

  • Made from easy to find (CHEAP) ingredients
  • No annoying processes making it (Mix and go)
  • Easy to apply
  • I DON’T stink with it!

I do apply it before bed and in the AM – but really I had to do that with my Rx strength DO too (Yeah, I am THAT smelly… hanging head in shame)


(Remember to use PURE unadulterated oils for this so you don’t end up putting something else potentially harmful in your body) HERE is more info on my company of choice!

Also, I add in 3 drops of Clary Sage, BUT if you are pregnant or plan to be – omit the Clary Sage. It is the one oil that is not wise to use while pregnant until you are in labor or FULL term as it could encourage contractions.

I did a “thing”

Anyone who has followed me for very long KNOWS my hair has been super long for… like…ever!

Well, on Saturday I found a couple of cute (shorter) hairstyles on Pinterest and starting thinking about lopping off my LONG hair. By Sunday I had scissors in hand and was rearing to go.

No, I don’t have cosmetology training, I am self taught… mostly through YouTube. BUT, I have been cutting my own hair for over 10 years and *most* of the time it turns out amazing.

I went for a long bob, or lob, as it is known in internet land. I probably cut it a bit longer than most lobs are, but, BABYSTEPS, yo.

Here is the final result.

I am SOOOO happy with it!


And if you can’t tell by the sweaty workout picture – I am finally getting back in the habit of working out regularly! These last 20 pounds of pregnancy weight are going to be GONE by the time I take my FREE trip to the Dominican! More on that later!

If your interested in seeing how I did it I actually vlogged the whole process!
