Centuries of Research

on the uses and effectiveness of essential oils helps us to understand what they are and how they work..

Lavender

is calming and soothing. It may be used aromatically, topically, or in some cases, internally.

Most Essential Oils

are safe for the whole family to use. Be sure to dilute oils when used topically, especially for small children and infants.

Essential Oils

are aromatic plant compounds, extracted from the leaves, bark and flowers of specific plants.

Our Lavender

is sourced from France, where it grows indigenously in optimal climate conditions.



Homemade Citrus Deodorant

 

This deodorant has a fresh citrus scent that is suitable for anyone.
You can also make up this recipe with the oils of your choice - lavender, sandalwood, cedarwood, melaleuca, geranium and patchouli are all good options for this recipe.

Ingredients:
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp shea butter
2 tbsp baking soda
2 tbsp arrowroot powder
2 drops lemongrass ssential oil
2 drops melaleuca (tea tree oil)
1 drop lime essential oil
3 drops bergamot essential oil

Directions
1. melt the coconut oil with the shea butter to combine (may be done stovetop with a double boiler or in the microwave in a glass bowl. 

2. add the essential oils to the melted coconut - shea butter mixture

3. add in the dry ingredients and mix well

4. pour into a mason jar or let harden then pack into a deodorant stick.

Note. If you would like for this recipe to go in a deodorant stick and not melt so easily, you can also add 1 tsp beeswax pellets to the recipe, however I prefer to leave them out as I think they are a little clogging for my pores.
