How to Make Homemade Deodorant
We’ve known for a while that store bought deodorants have chemicals that are thought to be linked with cancer cell growth, so why not skip to the toxins and learn how to make homemade deodorant for yourself? Use this homemade deodorant recipe to ward off body odors the natural way. You’ll love this easy deodorant recipe so much you won’t even miss big brand deodorants and wonder why you haven’t been doing this all along!
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup Shea Butter
- 1/4 cup Beeswax
- 3 T. Baking Soda
- 3 T. Arrowroot Powder
- 15 drops OnGuard essential oil
- 8 drops Melaleuca oil
Step 1. Place coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax pastilles in a glass measuring cup. Pop in the microwave for 10 seconds to melt them.
Step 2. Once melted, combine baking soda, arrowroot powder, and essential oil drops to the mixture. Mix until smooth.
Add more liquids or powders until mixture has reached desired consistency (I prefer mine a little more stiff so I like to use a little more arrowroot powder).
Step 3. Pour mixture in a container.
