Sustainable recipes

As you already know, we like to take care of the environment and we want to change some of our habits to achieve a more sustainable world.

Today we want to share with you two sustainable recipes easy to make at home, in case you also dare to change some habits for others that are more respectful with the environment:

SOLID DEODORANT

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons of cornstarch (Maizena)
  • 3 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 5 drops of essential oil (optional)

We will need a container first. We can reuse a bottle of hair mask or any glass jar, type of pâté or similar.

Process:

Inside the container, we will first pour the 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, which we can heat a little so that it is more liquid and it is not difficult to mix with the rest of the ingredients. Next, we add the cornstarch and baking soda. We mix everything for a couple of minutes and when we have achieved a creamy texture, we add the drops of essential oil.

Coconut oil has antibacterial properties and is very moisturizing for our skin. The cornstarch will help us to obtain a creamy texture and fight humidity. The baking soda camouflages the smell of sweat and helps eliminate toxins, and lastly, the essential oil will add a touch of perfume to the deodorant. It is important to bear in mind that essential oils are highly concentrated and, if we suffer from dermatitis or have sensitive skin, we must monitor their use (irritations could appear). We recommend tea tree oil, which, apart from the smell, gives us its antifungal properties. You can also use peppermint, lavender, rose oil … whichever you like the most!
