Id read somewhere about people using baking soda and coconut oil as a natural deodorant. Id been hanging on to an empty Toms Of Maine Lavender deodorant container for whenever I got around to figuring out how to make my own. I did a few days ago, and I was surprised at how well it worked.
Solid Deodorant 1/4 C coconut oil melted 1/8 c cornstarch 1 Tbs Baking Soda Essential oils of your choosing a total of 15 drops- Combine coconut oil, baking soda, cornstarch in a mixing bowl. When well combined, add your essential oils. Lastly, pour into an empty deodorant container and refrigerate for 15 minutes or until hardened. Remove from fridge and use as needed
Ok, so apparently I’m a delicate flower because every single amazing-smelling deodorant has been giving me a rash so of course I asked Eric to experiment with ingredients to find a deodorant recipe that doesn’t! A little less baking soda and a few other things and voila! No rashes… Love that man! Homemade Deodorant(...)
