Although I've been using more natural deodorants for years, it can be hard to find the right one that actually works for you and doesn't cost a fortune. I tried to make my own deodorant from a recipe I found on pinterest about three weeks ago.. but I lasted about two days before I gave up and ran out to buy some Secret. And moreso, out of pure devotion to you, gentle armpit-possessing reader, I wandered around Yokohama for three hours yesterday looking for the most elusive of all household staples (in the US, at least): baking soda. I really appreciate the personal review and great tips for using a crystal deodorant stone! The coconut oil is one of the key ingredients because it doubles both as a carrier oil and natural antibacterial. Some people report experiencing irritated skin after prolonged, topical applications of baking soda. I made your recipe but I omitted baking soda and beeswax and used clay instead but it's not setting. Scoop the mixture into your old deodorant dispensers or place in a small container with lid (I used a small mason jar).
I also found even when using antiperspirant deodorant that they didn't completely work and kind of caused their own funky odor that stayed in my clothing. Trust me, this deodorant works to combat odor and soothe sweaty pits like no other! Anyway, this blog has gone on way longer than I had expected to write about Easy-Do-It-Yourself Deodorant so I hope you have stuck with me. Making your own homemade body powder could not be easier and more cost effective. So as I don't do anything moderately, I decided to go whole-hog au-natural with my deodorant. I recently found a few that were OK, but still, it sucks to settle when it comes to deodorant. I have taken notes on the comments to send how to make deodorant spray
my daughter along with her first batch of homemade detox deodorant, so that she can be informed if anything unusual happens. The essential oils, and coconut oil alone should be enough to combat mild sweat/stink.
Using alcohol as deodorant is just as safe as use as an antiseptic on cuts and scrapes. One thing people should be clear on is that baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is naturally aluminum free. I'm truly shocked, and thrilled, to have found such an effective recipe for deodorant. After some trial and error with proportions, I finally got the recipe just right and have been happily using my knock off deodorant ever since! What is the best mouthwash?Your own DIY homemade mouthwash is the best mouthwash.
Good idea on letting your underarms breathe for a few days, I know when I stopped using conventional deodorant I definitely had to let them detox for a few days! Most antiperspirant also contains deodorant which may be why many use deodorants and antiperspirants interchangeably. To counteract this, we added more baking soda and arrowroot and it became more pasty, which I prefer. If you prefer a more natural approach, witch hazel or a bit of lavender essential oil works wonders. I put about 2 cups of cornstarch in a bowl and to that I added drops of pure essential oil of lavender, a few at a time, mixing it thoroughly with the cornstarch until I had the desired fragrance level that I wanted. Silica is a common ingredient in stick deodorant that absorbs excess grease from the essential oils. Stir in the vitamin E oil, arrowroot starch, and baking soda with a fork until smooth.
