I made my own deodorant.
I've been using this particular deo for the last year; it was a gift from my SIL. When it ran out, I wanted more. The recipe is very simple. (While making it, I felt amazed and actually thought to myself, "Lookie at what I have time to do!")
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
5 TBSP coconut oil
essential oil to scent to your liking (I used lavender)
- Mix the baking soda and arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
- Add the coconut oil and mash until well blended
- Add the essential oil and continue to mash
- Store in a covered glass container
And there you go -- deo for your BO.
