how to make deodorantThere is something that makes sense about turning to wholesome, natural pantry ingredients for nourishing our bodies from the outside as well the inside. The main deal with beeswax is that it helps keep DIY recipes solid without them melting, but I don't like how to make deodorant spray it feels heavy on my skin, especially during hot sweaty summer days where I'm looking for non-greasy skin care products so that's why I omitted it in this recipe.

Id advise diabetics to find a substitute for corn/arrowroot starch and use tea tree essential oil as its an antifungal. This worked wonderfully in the beginning, then the baking soda became too much and actually made my underarms raw and inflamed. Smells great, never need to reapply in a day, and this recipe fills 2 old deodorant containers. It's a vegetable wax that is supposed to make a great substitute for beeswax in natural recipes. I've just made it, melting the 2T coconut oil; and adding about 3 drops castor oil like I read somewhere, if not here. If you don't want to make your own deodorant, you can buy magnesium based deodorant here I love that there is a product on the market that is non-toxic and contains magnesium. He quit all deodorant and now just uses pure aloe vera gel and it works wonders for him, but we both can't wait to try this. Others have luck with a crystal deodorant that you can find at health food stores.

I use baking soda for many of my DIY recipes, but I think it may be too harsh for the underarms. Natural deodorant is the best option that one can walk with which is less costly and free from harmful elements used as ingredient in its production. I melt the coconut oil in the microwave until it's a liquid and add the corn starch and baking soda 6:1 ratio to the melted oil. First take your coconut oil, beeswax pellets and either cocoa butter or shea butter and heat them up. Use an old sauce pan or a glass pyrex cup over simmering water, and heat until the ingredients start to melt together. Found this blog after researching my horrible burn from Tom's of Maine deodorant.

I will say that my best friend used the same recipe and LOVES it. but she's a little more tolerant to perfumes and baking soda. Straight baking soda is too strong to apply directly to underarms, but it is incredibly effective at preventing odor. I put a little puddle of coconut oil in the palm of my hand, then add a few drops of palmarosa essential oil.

My son is only 10 and doesn't currently need deodorant yet, but I am sure the day will come rather soon. Most cold wax strip kits like the one by Parissa come with an oil based wax remover that works pretty well. When I were white tops, and after along days of work my shirt's underarms are oily looking and feeling and they smell like tea tree oil. Right now we're going through a series on 31 Days to Green Clean , talking about everything green, natural and homemade cleaning for all around your home. Thanks for such a great recipe, I just wish the baking soda didn't make my pits feel like fire!

The dermatologist told me to immediately discontinue the use of the deodorant and put me on a string of meds and salves. I now make it with soda:arrowroot:coconut oil in the ratio of 1:3:2. I also apply a little neat coconut oil to the armpits before applying the deodorant. I find this really eliminates any irritation. Some people don't have such sensitive skin like me and baking soda doesn't bother their skin.
