Hi everyone! I am B (to.be_natural_beauty) and I’m joining Hannah today for a much welcome blog collaboration. Hope you enjoy the topic
Some people call it eco-beauty. Some people call it a green luxury. Some may believe it is only related to products to use on your skin. Some believe that it goes from what we eat to what we wear. The fact is that it is all around us and nowadays it’s challenging to find someone who doesn’t care (in one way or another) for this topic.
I was 6 years old when I first started to look at natural beauty and my interest in it grew up together with me. Today, I am an aroma, massage and reflexology therapist in love with natural ingredients and their impact on our health and body.
Since I’ve started to make my own blends and natural beauty products, I saw that I had in hands the perfect opportunity to not only adjust my life to a more natural living purpose but also to integrate the zero-waste culture in it. The truth is that nature gives us all we need to live a healthy life and because of the way the society is structured we will always find something around us that is worth repurposing so, why not give it a try?
Let me give you an example: even though I have always tried to live a natural lifestyle, there were a few swaps that I have always struggled to do. Deodorant, toothpaste, mouthwash I just couldn’t believe they would be as good as the ones we bought from the supermarket. And, to be honest with you, I was super scared of going out and suddenly the sweaty smell was coming from me… But, one day, we stayed at home and I decided to give it a try. And you know what? It worked! And today, I wouldn’t swap my natural ingredient deodorant for any other! Can you imagine the relief of knowing that you won’t stink but also that you are not using any chemical, no antiperspirant stuff on your skin? Trust me, that is gold! I’ll share the recipe with you so that you can try and let me know your thoughts:
Natural Coconut & Orange deodorant:
1/3 cup of coconut oil;
¼ cup Baking soda;
¼ cup arrowroot powder;
4 tablespoons of corn starch;
10 to 15 drops of Sweet orange essential oil.
Mix the dry ingredients and add the melted coconut oil and the orange essential oil after. Put it in a repurposed deodorant container and you’re good to go! You can also find the video and the recipe on my Instagram page to.be_natural_beauty.
It doesn’t get any easier than this to be a natural beaut!
