Two-ingredient hair wash
15ml powdered rhassoul clay
30-45ml tepid water
Mix the clay and water and leave to stand for 10-15 minutes, or until the clay has absorbed the water. Remember to use glass or plastic containers and utensils, as metal ones can react with the minerals in the clay.
500ml bicarbonate of soda
500ml potato flour or cornflour
500ml cold-pressed coconut oil
5-10 drops essential oil
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix to a smooth paste. If your coconut oil is in solid form, you can melt it using a water bath. Store your deodorant in a lidded jar.
