Are you ready for no more toxic pits???
It’s really easy and much less expensive to make your own deodorant.
Technically the recipe is:
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup corn starch (or arrow-root starch)
5 or 6 tablespoons of coconut oil
with a long drawn out complicated mixing instruction, but because my nature is to seek out easier ways to accomplish the same end…this is MY way of making the deodorant I use.
I use baking soda, arrow-root and coconut oil.
I scoop a bunch of coconut oil into a pan and heat it up.
Then once melted…(I try not to let it boil, but no biggie if it does at this point)
…I add equal parts of arrow-root and baking soda. I start with 1/4 cup of each and keep adding equal parts….
…until it mixes up to a cream soup like texture.
Then I pour it into my jar and stick it in the freezer immediately.
The reason I put it in the freezer is because once when I left it at room temp, the ingredients separated.
I do not keep it in the freezer…once solid, I store in my bathroom cupboard. It will thaw to a deodorant consistency.
When it is about room temp, I use a spoon to chunk up some bits for a starting point (that might make more sense once you are trying to get a bit out for use haha)
Then I take a pea size chunk and rub into my arm pit.
No more toxic pits!
