We’re enduring a particularly hot summer, right? Body butters and lotions are melting all over the place. But here’s a DIY oil that actually helps control sweat and odor.
SAGE: This essential oil is known for its astringent powers and actually works to restrict sweat glands and reduce perspiration. It’s also anti-bacterial and antifungal
LEMON: Lemon also controls sweating. It contains citric acid that eliminates the bacteria and is a known deodorizer.
COCONUT OIL: Use coconut oil as a carrier oil, which contains lauric acid that eliminates the bacteria that causes sweat.
CREATING YOUR OIL:
When you mix these ingredients together, you end up with a pretty powerful body oil that helps during the muggiest of summer days.
Add ten drops of lemon and ten drops of sage to a 4oz jar of coconut oil to create a body oil that helps keep you fresh all day.
