Make Your Own DIY Natural Deodorant
Important note: Now I make my deodorant this way. I find it better because of the risk of blocking the pores and causing painful red lumps in the armpits. If you still prefer a solid deodorant you can try this one, might be good for you.
Natural deodorant is so easy to make, easier than making scrambled eggs and there is no cooking involved:
1/8 cup baking soda – Some people are sensitive to baking soda especially in the armpits. It’s a low ratio in the recipe. If this is too much for you, just omit or use carnstarch instead.
1/4 cup corn starch or arrowroot powder
3/8 cup coconut oil
10-20 drops of you favorite essential oil blend – I like neroli which makes a lively scent when combined with coconut. Do not use cinnamon or clove as they can be irritating. People with very sensitive skin can use lavender or just omit the essential oil altogether.
Mix well in a bowl and put into a jar. Your DIY natural deodorant is ready and you have plenty of it. Use very little each time on dry skin.
