Using a few simple ingredients, you can make your own all-natural, skin soothing deodorant, scented exactly the way you like it. It's so simple and gratifying, you'll never go back!
Step 1: Materials
- 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
Tea tree, sandalwood, lavender, lemon, and neem oils are all good alternatives. Use one, none, or create your own blend!
Step 2: Mix it up
Add essential oils - I used 8 drops of lavender with 3 drops of sandalwood.
Add 2 Tablespoons coconut oil and a few drops of vitamin E oil (opt). Though the coconut oil I got for this project had a low melting point, the stuff I have at home has a higher one, which I would recommend. That kind I bought in my grocery store near the Crisco and other baking needs.
Mush the ingredients together until they start to form a silky mass. Add more of the coconut oil or dry ingredients to adjust. Then you're ready to start packing it in to your container.
Step 3: The Genius Part
Fill your container with about and inch or so of deodorant, insert your flag, and fill the rest of your container!
