Sage & Lavender Deodorant

All natural deodorant to keep you Spring-fresh!


With the warmer weather fast approaching we're looking for all the ways to keep fresh and clean. This week Catalyst Tea Company is bringing you a soothing recipe for an all-natural lavender and sage deodorant.


Lavender Benefits

The calming attributes of lavender are what the herb is best known for. Lavender can naturally calm down the nervous system by lowering your blood pressure. It's also a great anxiety deterrent, a natural sedative, and may even help to stave off depression.

It also has natural anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it the perfect skin-healing herbal remedy.


Sage Benefits

Sage is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. It is very high in vitamin K and other minerals such as magnesium, zinc, and copper. Studies have shown that sage carries strong antibacterial and deodorizing properties, making it the perfect herbal additive for a natural deodorant.



This fun and quick recipe can be altered in a pinch, however, you might want to have the following on hand: A mesh sieve, a small muffin mold, and a mason jar


Ingredients For Oil Infusion:

  • 1/3 cup of dried Lavender

  • 1/3 cup of Sage Leaves

  • 2/3 cup of Sweet Almond Oil

  • 1/4 cup of Coconut Oil


Ingredients For Deodorant:

  • 1/2 cup of Oil Infusion

  • 1 oz Shea Butter

  • 2 oz Beeswax

  • 10 drops of Lavender Essential oil

  • 10 drops of sage Essential oil

  • 2 tsp of Baking Soda

  • 2 tbsp of Arrowroot powder



Directions:

  1. To create your oil infusion, place herbs into a mason jar and pour in melted-down coconut oil. Add sweet almond oil and cover, then leave the infusion in a cool, dark place for two to six weeks.

  2. Strain out herbs from your oil infusion with a mesh sieve into the top container of a double boiler. Add beeswax and stir consistently until the beeswax melts down completely.

  3. Add in your shea butter and stir till it dissolves as well.

  4. Remove from heat and transfer your mixture to a clean bowl.

  5. Slowly stir in the essential oil drops, baking soda, and arrowroot powder. Make sure your mixture is well combined and the consistency has thickened a bit before pouring it into your muffin molds, halfway full.

  6. Let your deodorant bars firm up for about 3 hours, and enjoy!


*Wrapping your extra deodorant bars in wax paper and storing them in the fridge helps them keep for an extended period of time.
