My Favorite Deodorant Recipe
Deodorant Paste Recipe
I ditched my standard deodorant years ago and couldn’t find a natural one I liked, so I tried making my own and loved it. It is easy, inexpensive and works so well, I still use it every day.
2 tablespoons baking soda
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
3 tablespoons coconut oil
5 drops tea tree oil (or other preferred essential oil)
Mix ingredients together and store in a glass jar. Rub on a small amount of paste. Since there is coconut oil this paste will separate if it gets too warm. Just stir and it’s good to go.
- Use a bowl dedicated to mix the deodorant. The tea tree oil can coat the bowl/jar and cause food after it to take on the taste. Trust me, you don’t want to make this mistake as I did!
- I love tea tree oil for its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties.
I have tried store-bought brands but always go back to this and don’t try others anymore.

I have high-end brands but one of my favorites is under $25! They are almost exactly like my $100 pairs, even the fabric, and people always think they are high end.
Stop Raccoon Eyes
Stop Raccoon Eyes for Good
I always got mascara on my eyelids, even with all of the best-reviewed waterproof mascaras. The typical advice never worked on me and then recently I came across a tip that actually worked!! Once your mascara is dry, apply a thin coat of clear mascara to the front and back of the end of your top lashes. That is it and it works with every mascara I have tried it with!View
I almost always got mascara smudged on my eyelids and ended up with raccoon eyes. Now with this trick, it no longer happens!
