INGREDIENTS

100% pure Tea Tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia).

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca oil, is an essential oil that comes from steaming the leaves of the Australian tea tree. When used topically, tea tree oil is believed to be antibacterial. Tea tree oil is commonly used to treat acne, athlete’s foot, lice, nail fungus, burns, sunburn and insect bites

Description

Tea tree oil’s antibacterial effects may help control underarm odor related to perspiration.

Sweat itself does not smell. However, when secretions from your sweat glands combine with bacteria on your skin, a moderate to strong odor is produced.

Your underarm area contains a large concentration of these glands and is mainly responsible for what is commonly referred to as “body odor.” Tea tree oil’s bacteria-fighting properties make it an ideal natural alternative to commercial deodorants and antiperspirants.

Here is a safe and effective natural deodorant that can be made from tea tree oil and a few other ingredients.

All-Natural Deodorant with Tea-Tree

INGREDIENTS
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
3 Tbsp Shea Butter
1/4 Cup Arrow Root Powder or Cornstarch
1/4 Cup Baking Soda
1 Tbsp Bee’s Wax Optional: works well if using an old deodorant container

20-30 Drops Tea Tree Essential Oil or Lavender if you don’t have tea-tree on hand

INSTRUCTIONS
Melt the coconut oil, shea butter & bee’s wax in a glass jar.

Set the jar in a pot of boiling water, to create a double-boiler effect.

Once they have melted together, remove from heat, cool slightly, and stir in the baking soda, arrowroot powder, and tea-tree oil.

Pour the mixture into a small container or an old deodorant stick. If using an old deodorant stick, wait a few minutes until the mixture has thickened a bit As you can see, I’ve used all three options, so just choose what you think will work best for you.

Let the mixture sit for several hours or overnight before using.

Tea tree oil can be used to treat and disinfect minor cuts and abrasions by killing S. aureus and other bacteria that can cause infection in open wounds.

Clean the cut thoroughly with plain soap and water
