To make your own deodorant, gather up:
- Corn starch
- Baking soda
- Coconut oil
- Essential oils (opt. - adds smellpretty!)
- Vitamin E (opt. adds ooohskinsoft!)
- An empty container to be filled with your new deodorant
Some great essential oils for deodorant also act as antimicrobials (since bacteria is what causes the smell, using something to wipe them out is even better!) While the oils of bay, cinnamon, clove and thyme are the most inhibitory, they can also lead to major sensitivity in the pit-ular area.
Tea tree, sandalwood, lavender, lemon, and neem oils are all good alternatives. Use one, none, or create your own blend!
