I ditched non-natural store-bought deodorant over a year ago. I now make homemade natural deodorant using only 3 ingredients. I ditched the stick due to all of the toxins that deodorants contain. Non-natural deodorants contain aluminum, parabans, propylene glycol, TEA, DEA, triclosan, talc, and FD & C colors. These nasty ingredients may be linked to breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, and severe allergies. Homemade natural deodorant contains coconut oil, arrowroot powder, and baking soda…sounds much better, right?
I have been using homemade natural deodorant for well over a year now and it works great for me and I love the coconut smell. Making homemade deodorant is super easy and cost-effective!
Here is what you need:
Here is what you do:
Combine equal portions of baking soda & Arrowroot Powder. Then slowly add coconut oil and work it in with a spoon until it maintains the substance you desire.
I simply store mine in a glass jar and rub a small amount under your arms daily or as needed. This homemade deodorant does thicken up and you could place it in a recycled deodorant container but make sure you keep it in a cool place as it softens up when it gets really warm due to the coconut oil. My husband now asks me to label the jars after he brushed his teeth with the deodorant after mistaking it for our homemade toothpaste!
