DIY – Deodorant

By  |  0 Comments

Many moms I know are moving toward making their own stuff – household things, health and beauty products, arts and crafts products, you name it. Whether it’s for health reasons or financials, the list of “make it yourself” products is growing among moms. Now you can add deodorant to your list! Yes, it’s a little awkward the first time or two you put it on, but it works well and is healthier.

You will need coconut oil, baking soda, cornstarch and any essential oil you would like to add. While this can all be found relatively easy, I would recommend the Chemistry Store if you are also looking for other similar items or buying larger amounts to make many items at once. Not only are the very nice, but they are actually local. So you can save shipping and time by swinging over to Cayce to pick it up.

1. Mix 1/4 cup baking soda and 1/4 cornstarch in a mixing bowl. (If you are not a fan of cornstarch, you can also use arrowroot.)

2. Mash in coconut oil with a fork until it is super mixed in.

3. Add a few drops of essential oil if desired. I used grapefruit.

4. Store in a small glass jar or old deodorant container for use.
