Creamy Homemade Deodorant

Skin is the body’s largest organ. Not only are we nicely wrapped in it like a present but also it does some crucial work to keep us healthy. It protects us from external influences such as dirt, bacteria and viruses and regulates our heat balance. And it has a big influence on detoxification.

That’s why it’s important to me to know what ingredients the products consist that I put on my skin.

For years, I tried to mix my own deodorant, which is not too fluid, not too hard and keeps the same consistence, no matter in which country and at what temperatures I’m hanging around. And for some time now I am most satisfied with this mixture which I would like to share with you.

Ingredients

2 tbsp Coconutoil
1 tbsp Baking Soda
1 tbsp Maizena
2 tbsp Shea Butter
1-2 tablespoons of Almond Oil, depending on the desired consistency
Use essential oil as desired, very sparingly

Mix all ingredients and pour it in a sterile glass container. Depending on the desired consistency, you can add more or less coconut or almond oil.

Officially you can stor a self-made Deo for 4 to 8 weeks. I have mine since 4 month and it’s still perfect.

 

Coconut oil is rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. It has an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect
Baking Soda/Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes odors and has a alkaline effect
Maizena binds the sweat
Shea butter is rich in minerals, moisturizing, healing effect and contains Vitamin E
Almond oil protects and soothes the skin
Essential oils are for fragrance and they have a healing and nourishing effect

I wish you lots of fun trying it out and of course I am looking forward to your feedback!

 

Sad News

With a heavy heart I have to tell you that Dominic and I have separated. Our plans and dreams have not changed, only that we will not realize them together anymore.

We have decided that I will continue the website on my own.

I hope that our paths cross again in the future and I wish that our dreams come true despite everything.

Our First Post

We are so excited to finally publish our first Blogpost.

It took us almost 6 month to kick our butts and write this text. At least now we know, that our Slogan ‘Slowly but surely’ is picked wisely.

We are Tanja and Dominic from Switzerland and Canada. Our passions are cooking and eating, skydiving and hiking, reading and traveling, climbing and lots more.

Our goal in life is to have a minimum impact on nature, to be as free as possible from any convensions and to buy land, where we can build our sustainable life.

On this Blog we want to share our dreams, plans and adventures, our experience and struggles along the way. We want to inspire and encourage people to a life in harmony with our planet earth.

We are looking forward to feedback, comments and a lively exchange!
