Make Your Own Safe Deodorant!

Make Your Own Safe Deodorant!

It’s easy to use and you can add essential oils for an “essentially yummy smell”, if you want.Deodorant Recipe 


6-8 Tbsp Coconut oil (solid state)

1/4 cup bi Carb of soda

1/4 cup arrowroot powder or c (arrowroot is preferred)


Combine equal portions of bi carb soda & arrowroot powder.

Slowly add coconut oil and work it in with a spoon or hand blender until it maintains a firm but pliable texture.

It should be about the same texture as commercial deodorant, solid but able to be applied easily. If it is too wet, add further arrowroot powder/cornstarch to thicken.

You can either scoop this recipe into your old deodorant dispensers or place in a small container with lid and apply with fingers with each use. Makes about 1 cup.

This recipe lasts about 3 months for two people with regular daily use.
