Description

So let's go - because with good conditions, production is the (fun) icing on the cake.

The deodorant from today's recipe treats the armpits quite nicely - the skin, which - let's face it - is not only damaged by shaving, is soothed by panthenol, lavender and oil components, while baking soda and essential oils take care of unwanted odor.

What will be needed?

- Coconut oil

- Grape butter, or other lighter butter

- Jojoba wax

- Baking soda

- Panthenol

- Starch - I use kuzu, which you can buy in Zdravá núžně, it's no problem to reach for potato or tapioca

- Lavender essential oil

- Tea tree essential oil

How to do it?

Honestly, nothing can go wrong. In a water bath, dissolve jojoba wax, coconut oil and grapeseed butter in a volume ratio of 4:4:2 (again, the unreduced ratio to make it easier to work with the other ingredients). In most recipes you will find more beeswax, I personally prefer jojoba because it is softer and after all it is essentially an oil. Even butter is not completely traditional in the lineup of deodorant ingredients; however, the deodorant with it glides better on the skin compared to my earlier attempts, in which only coconut was featured.

While you are waiting for the mixture to dissolve nicely in your mug, prepare the dry ingredients. That is , starch of your choice, panthenol and baking soda in a ratio of 2:1:1. So that the final deodorant does not scratch you, be sure to put all the ingredients through a sieve, even the struggle with the mortar and pestle is definitely worth it.

Add tea tree and lavender essential oils to the heated mixture; both are antiseptic, tea tree fights bacteria very effectively and lavender soothes the skin of the armpits. The resulting fragrant combo also smells ultra-fresh. Now all you have to do is mix in the properly sifted dry ingredients - there's no reason to worry about any precipitation or similar things (don't I keep saying that cooking cosmetics is easier than cooking food?), so feel free to sprinkle everything in there at once. Mix thoroughly, pour the mixture into the prepared containers, wait for it to harden, shout "glory and rejoice for five days". :)

A lot has been written about the harmfulness of commonly available deodorants, as I researched the composition of solid "deodorants" (I somehow overate the sprays at the gym, where our girls' locker room was turned into a gas chamber for eight years) from the drugstore, aluminum salt and similar beauties are already disappearing.

Of course, deodorant doesn't make the sweat stick and crawl back through the pores - "thank goodness" . On the contrary, I would probably be quite afraid of such a deodorant. Sweating is simply part of us, we like sweating, sweating is nice, we need sweating. A good deodorant just distracts from the fact that we're still human and don't smell like roses (honestly, we usually smell more like Chanel No. 5). :)
