Healthy Home Made Deodorant from Scratch

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!
