Which is why when I finally bit the bullet and made a homemade deodorant, I decided to take it beyond all-natural and add a detoxifying ingredient – bentonite clay – which actually pulls toxins from the skin. It’s the anti-antiperspirant. Bentonite clay is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays. According to Wellness Mama: Bentonite clay carries a strong negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins. When it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical or heavy metal, the clay will absorb the toxin and release it’s minerals for the body to use. Bentonite also helps get oxygen to cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen instead. Furthermore, bentonite clay has a very fine velvet-like texture, is odorless and non-staining, which are all important qualities for a deodorant.

Then we started inventing our own suckies—i.e. “sustainabully,” a person who makes others feel guilty for perceived eco-sins—and slipping them in. Once we added the information we’d researched for articles—like the amount of pesticides that go into conventional cotton production, why hemp t-shirts might just save the world and how to figure out if your moisturizer can cause cancer—The Big List got so behemoth that we built a website around it. Yup, that was the beginning of EcoStiletto. Welcome to The Big List of Things That Suck.

Itani Family Pharmacy | Titusville, FL | Wellness Library | Menstrual Cramps (Dysmenorrhea) Rethinking Oral Health Care: A Homemade Toothpaste Recipe for Tooth Remineralization.

Several years ago, I started to question some of the ingredients in commercial toothpastes as well as the approach of modern dentistry in general. I view some modern dentistry practices as appropriate and beneficial. Consider, though, that the foundation of today’s dental philosophy is similar to the mainstream medical model in that it focuses on treatment and not prevention. I believe the focus of dentistry (like medicine) should be prevention of decay and disease through sound nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.

This begins in utero (even pre-conception), when the teeth and jaw structure are formed, is well established through breastfeeding, and must be adhered to for one’s lifetime. Avoiding dental decay and disease through diet is challenging, because it means one must stray far from the standard American diet. Spark Health has a DIY Dental eCourse available.

Homemade Herbal Bug Spray Recipes That Work! How to Make Magnesium Oil to Improve Sleep and Reduce Stress. I’ve written before about how I use magnesium daily and why I feel it is such a vital part of overall wellness . Many people are deficient in this vital mineral that the body uses for hundreds of reactions. Every cell in the body needs magnesium in some way, and it is vital for bone, tooth, muscle and joint health as well as for optimal sleep and stress reduction. Deficiency of magnesium is widespread because many of us have lifestyle factors that actively deplete magnesium such as lack of sleep, excess stress, or alcohol/caffeine/sugar consumption. On top of that, many natural sources of magnesium are becoming depleted (such as the soil due to over-farming and high pesticide use) and water filtration systems remove much of the naturally occurring magnesium in water. I take magnesium internally and use it on my skin daily in the form of magnesium oil .

Have you ever wondered how to blend essential oils together? I know I did when I first started using them on myself and my kids. I’d buy a bunch of single oils as well as several synergy blends because I didn’t know how to make them myself.

Synergy blends are combinations of oils that all work well together and promote something specific like relaxation, energy, keeping bugs away, etc. These blends of essential oils can be used for their aromatherapy purposes as well as their medicinal purposes.

Since we’ve been on the topic of homemade lotion bars the past couple of weeks, I figured I’d share the recipe for homemade deodorant bars (or homemade deodorant sticks!)

These are slightly thicker than my original homemade deodorant recipe , which allows them to be used as a bar, or put into an old deodorant container. Since the homemade lotion bars , sunscreen bars and deodorant bars all use many of the same ingredients, you can order these in bulk from Mountain Rose Herbs or find them locally and save a lot of money on your family’s personal care products. I also love Frugally Sustainable’s idea of adding probiotics to the recipe to help balance good bacteria and prevent odor, and I tried it with this recipe.
