Are you over those stains antiperspirants leave on the underarms of shirt sleeves? Aluminum is the culprit, and guess what? Not only does it ruin shirts, but it’s also a known neurotoxin, meaning it can have adverse affects on your brain. Not cool.
Ditch aluminum-laden antiperspirant deodorants for this alternative. We’ve got a safe and effective DIY deodorant recipe with natural ingredients all available at Thrive Market for 25 to 50 percent less than supermarket prices:
Watch the video to see how easy it is to make this all-natural deodorant! Simply melt coconut oil and shea butter over a double boiler, add arrowroot flour and baking soda, and stir.
