After learning that there are harmful ingredients in most deodorants sold in stores, I decided to try to make my own. After trial and error I finally have a natural deodorant that works! Try it out for yourself💛
🔸6 Tablespoons Raw Organic Coconut Oil
🔸1/2 Cup + 1 Tablespoon Pure Baking Soda *
🔸1/2 Cup Pure Arrow Root (Starch/Flour) *
🔸1 1/2 Tablespoons Organic Beeswax
🔸10-15 Drops Essential Oils (Wild Orange, Tea Tree (melaleuca)** or Ylang Ylang** are good to use. (
I like Tea Tree Essential Oil because it has a fresh scent, is anti-bacterial and healing. However, it can also be a little strong.)
* I used Bob’s Red Mill
** Can cause skin irritation if used in excess or have extremely sensitive skin
Combine all ingredients in a pot and heat on low heat until everything is mixed well and melted. Do not overheat. Let cool slightly in pan, then pour into deodorant containers. Put containers in the refrigerator for about 4 hours or let sit overnight before using. Do not worry that it is runny after heating, it will set up very nice after it sits for a while as instructed above.
I bought my empty deodorant containers off Amazon. Yang ylang and tea tree essential oils smell nice and fresh in the men’s deodorant. Wild orange and lemon essential oils give the deodorant a fresh, citrus scent that you will love!
