Instructions
  1. Add 10 drops of essential oils* to the roll-on bottle.
  2. Then fill the bottle with the carrier oil of your choosing to the top lip of the container.
  3. Put the top on.
Notes
*These carrier oils work great: Fractionated coconut oil, camellia seed oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil. Evening primrose will help if excessive sweating is hormone related.

* Some good essential oil to use here are lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, vanilla, peppermint, thyme, tea tree, lavender, patchouli, frankincense, ylang ylang, and vetiver.

Lemon essential oil (all citruses, in fact) help with odor-producing bacteria. However, you may want to avoid using citrus only in this deodorant. Instead, also add myrrh, sandalwood, vetiver, frankincense, or any of the other heavier oils. These will add middle tones to the fragrance and carry the citrus oils a lot longer. If you’d like to tone the blend down, reduce the amount of citrus and increase the amount of lavender.

Mix and match these fragrances any way you’d lile. Grapefruit has cellulite reducing properties. Patchouli, vetiver, frankincense, and pine convey grounding benefits.

Lastly, keep in mind that certain citrus oils are photosensitizing and can cause your skin to burn or develop sunspots. For a list of photosensitizing oils click here.
