DIY Deodorant Stick

Here’s a recipe from the doTerra blog that I am trying this week for DIY Deodorant Stick. I’ll share some pictures later of my expeiernce. Remember that Geranium and/or Lemongrass essential oils with a teaspoon of fractionated coconut oil work also and Lemongrass actually should help prevent perspiration and is a good  EO for the lymph nodes, an added  benefit. Depending on if you like a stick deodorant or liquid one, you will find a recipe below that should do the trick.
