Homemade Deodorant Recipe

Homemade Deodorant Recipe

Are you sick and tired of avoiding meetings because of the embarrassment of excessive perspiration and the bad odor? Using clean tools, hands, and not adding water to the product will help protect the deodorant. Today I'd like to publish advice on the best deodorant for women given by several respondents. If you live in a warm climate, you might need add more baking soda and arrowroot like you did— which will thicken it up if it's too liquidy. I didn't stink from my homemade deodorant side as much as I had a scent' from the commercial. The clay gives it a medium grey-brown color, making it the darkest of the deodorants we tried. Make sure to break up, and mix in, any clumps of arrowroot powder or baking soda. Make your own spray deodorant by combining 20 drops of essential oil for every 4 ounces of distilled water. It works great here in upstate SC. A few drops od CASTOR oil is great for glide. I gave your receipt a swing (hippie and sucker for coconut out that I am) and I loved it!

When I quit wearing antiperspirant, I sought out and tried numerous brands of organic deodorant. Coconut oil is antibacterial which kills the critters that smell up our pits in ways that some find offensive (I used to be offended to, but now I tend to love the natural healthy smells of people). However, some people have found that the baking soda will give them a rash, which I think someone mentioned above. I talk about how Bentonite clay heals acne, cures problematic skin and my personal experience + tips.

Seems from the comments it could be too much baking soda so I guess I'll try adding more of the other ingredients because otherwise it's great! Place the coconut oil, and the shea butter in a double boiler, and stir until it has all melted. What we can do is make a natural deodorant which inhibits bacterial growth so you smell sweet all day long. Not only did it help calm my irritated skin, but I was surprised to find that I had no unpleasant body odor, despite not wearing any deodorant of any type. After a solid month I finally gave up and went back to my less-effective and more-expensive all natural" store-bought deodorant. Coconut oil melts at 76 degrees, and the rest of the stuff would be much easier to mix into melted oil, so I would melt the oil first (If you don't want to use the stove, just about any warm spot in your house will do). It is also the same as the homemade feminine hygiene with vinegar and works great!

I started doing an apple cider vinegar spray prior to applying this deoderant but that has not solved the problem either. The only time I really noticed body odor with plain baking soda was when I was due for a shower and wore synthetic silky PJs at nighttime. When I first tried making my own deodorant it failed because I put too much baking soda which made my underarms really red. I'm excited to try this simple because deodorant is getting too darn expensive!

Not only that I found you did not have to apply it every day like you would with a conventional deodorant It is effective, it is safe and it is natural. I have been using a version of your deodorant recipe for about 2 weeks now (found it somewhere else). To keep it smelling fresh between shampoos, use dry shampoo or sprinkle your scalp with baking soda. They also didn't seem to protect against odour as well as the coconut oil — perhaps because they don't offer the antimicrobial properties that cold-pressed virgin coconut oil does. I once tried to make this recipe with patchouli oil instead and it was a complete disaster. We haven't discussed deodorant lately, so I'll have to ask her if she's found something that works yet.

I've heard great things about unrefined sunflower oil for skin, or any favourite liquid oil that you would use on your body. Picking a deodorant to help prevent body odor seems straightforward, until you head down to the drugstore aisle overflowing with options. In the summer months I use all kokum butter and only half kokum and half shea or mango for the winter batches. The irony here is that coconut oil has recently been rumoured prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's. Christine, just use a grater to grate the beeswax bar into shreds, then you can measure the 1/2 cup easily. I'm curious to try this, but I'm wary, because my sweating problem is so bad that I'm worried I'll just sweat off the natural deodorant. After my latest jar of deodorant ran out, I decided to take a look at the ingredient list before tossing the bottle in the trash: shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, baking soda, arrowroot powder, lavender, vitamin E oil.

I had bad underarm odor since I was a teenager-now in my mid 40's, and I used to use clinical strength deodorant. It is especially important for women to take thought to the harmful aluminum materials in deodorant as it has been linked to breast cancer, being that the breast tissue extends up into the armpits.

Common brands of men's deodorant found in drugstores that do not contain aluminum include Old Spice Classic Deodorant Stick, Speed Stick Classic Scent Deodorant and Arm & Hammer Ultramax Deodorant. This recipe fit perfectly into it. Just be aware that the coconut oil will melt at warm temperatures so don't leave it in your hand bag in the car. Feel free to experiment and combine other bases and essential oils with the magnesium oil in this Homemade Deodorant recipe. If ur dog has ticks, the oil will dislodge them & suffocate them & with the following shampooing, they will be dispensed with. I continued using baking soda exclusively for a month or two until my mom gave me a gorgeous powder puff container that she had sitting in her cupboard.
