Natural Coconut Oil Deodorant




About: Sometimes creativity explodes in me, so here it is

Hello, in this instructable I will show you how to make natural deodorant that I have been using for so long! It was a true revelation to me, and since I have tried it, I never used deodorant with non natural ingredients! You will need only two ingredients, it's super cheap and easy to make, and you will be amazed by how it works!

If you are curious to see how you can make it for yourself or for your loved ones, keep reading! :D

Step 1: What You'll Need

- 1 tsp Baking soda

- 2 tbsp Melted unrefined coconut oil

- Container

This is the measure for 15 ml container that can last for 2 months.

Step 2: The Process

Mix coconut oil with baking soda, and pour into glass container. I highly recommend sterilizing your container before usage. Just put it into the oven at 150°C for few minutes (you can put it while you are baking something else as I did :))

Step 3: Let It to Cool Down

Put the container in your refrigerator, and after just a few minutes you will have your natural coconut oil deodorant! You will notice that texture has not changed, it will still look like coconut oil, and it will be easy to apply as well as oil itself. You can apply it with your fingers (make sure they are always clean ^_^) to the skin, or you can use any type of cosmetic spatula :D

Let me know if you have tried it! Thank you for reading! <3

    Hey, would this help reduce, if not eliminate, really bad body odor from an athletically active teenage girl?

    Sure! Baking soda is the most powerful odor neutralizer. For better results, add bigger amount of baking soda and any kind of essential oil for nicer smell :)

    Interesting! I've been using one of those mineral stone deodorant things for years, but why not, I'll give this a try!
