If you’ve had it with aluminum-laden commercial deodorants, make your own deodorant stick, and give it exactly the scent you want!
Geranium, lavender, lemon, lemongrass, lime, tea tree, and thyme are all natural antibacterial choices.
What you need:
1/4 cup aluminum-free baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot or cornstarch
15 drops essential oil
3 to 5 table spoons coconut carrier oil
- Combine the baking soda, arrowroot, and essential oil in a ceramic or glass bowl.
- Add the coconut carrier oil 1 tablespoon at a time, working it with a pastry blender until the mixture has the consistency of a paste.
- Press the paste into an empty deodorant container.
- Place the deodorant in the refrigerator for 1 hour or until the coconut oil solidifies. Store the deodorant in a cool, dry place.
I hope this is helpful to you!
