2 c. I Samuel 30:12(raisins)
2 c. Revelation 6:13(chopped dried figs)

Homemade Deodorant

Just found this recipe my chat with farmgirls.
It is so true what she shared. The Lord made us to perspire because it is the natural way that your bodies get rid of the toxins. The antiperspirant deodorants are keeping these toxins in our bodies. Which can lead to a unhealthy body, and maybe even sickness.

Making your own you know what is in it!! And it is a natural clean!

Homemade Deodorant
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot
5-6 Tbps. coconut oil or (optional Tea Tree Oil about 5-20 drops)
which has natural antibacterial qualities.
Then mix this all up, and store in a small bowl with lid. If your home is warm this will cause your deodorant to be soft. But , if you want it to stay solid put it in the fridge ( in the fridge it is cooling and refreshing.) To use just apply under the arm.

Enjoy and please comment on how you think it works.
