Due to the heavy toxins in store-bought deodorants, I’ve wanted to stop using it for years, but didn’t know what the alternatives were. Recently, I stumbled on a recipe for homemade deodorant.
It has three ingredients:
- ¼ cup baking soda
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- 5 tablespoons unrefined, organic coconut oil
Mix the ingredients together well, then heat in the microwave for 20 seconds to melt and mix again. Allow to cool and set.
To use, apply to underarms with fingers.
I’ve been using this homemade deodorant for months now and I’m thrilled. It works as an antiperspirant
and also prevents odor.
The best part? The recipe makes 6 oz. for roughly $1.30 in supplies. For 6 oz. of the clinical strength deodorant I’d been using, I would’ve paid approximately $28.25. Plus, I use way less of the homemade than I did the store-bought deodorant, which means I’m saving even because I am using less. Carmel
This didn’t work for me. But I have learned that some drops of tea tree oil will kill bacteria-causing odor.
I told my sister about this, and she made it that very day. She says it works great! As soon as I run out of my store-bought stuff, I’m going to try it too. Thanks!
Does it stain clothing… sounds like it is greasy.
