Homemade Natural Deodorant

Using natural products, instead of commercial industrial ones can be a clever and safer way to handle things. You can opt for the natural alternative in a lot of domains and with a lot of things. Today, we offer you the steps required for making a DIY natural deodorant. Be warned, this is not an antiperspirant deodorant, but it’s much better in our opinion. Because it will prevent you for smelling as badly, not sweating as much – which is a natural process. Take much care about allergies, to baking soda or any other essential oils, because these are the main ingredients of the DIY deodorant. Also, make sure you don’t use it after shaving, because you will get uncomfortable. Here is what you will need:

• 8 tablespoons of coconut oil;
• a bowl;
• 1/4 cup of baking soda;
• a spoon;
• 1/4 cup of arrowroot powder;
• a small container with lid;
• (optional) any kind of essential oil, i.e. tea tree oil;
• (optional) blender;

Begin with mixing the arrowroot and soda together in the bowl, in same proportions. Use a spoon to stir and slowly pour the coconut oil into the bowl. Stop when the content gets a pliable texture, like the ones of deodorants you find in the stores. Add more arrowroot to get it thicker, if it’s too watery. Take the small container and place the mixture from the bowl into it. Use fingers to apply it on your skin. It is meant to last you for about 3 months. Optionally, use a blender instead of a spoon to get the ingredients smoother. Keep it in a cool place, like the fridge and don’t worry about it staining your clothes as much as industrial products do.

    Can you do this with other essential oils? If I am not a huge lavender fan could I use something else?

    I have been using this for more than 5 years. It doesn’t stain my clothes any more than regular deodorant does. And I don’t always use essential oils. Tea Tree oil has antiseptic properties but I don’t always use it.
