DIY DEODORANT // no baking soda

May 29, 2019

Deodorants are always in the headlines for being linked to chronic illnesses, so making my own was a no-brainer. Also my underarms used to be VERY discolored due to all the chemicals in mass-produced deodorant sprays.

Here are some links to articles going into more detail on WHY deodorants aren't the best for our health:

 INGREDIENTS:
1.5 tbsp beeswax pellets
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp shea butter
8 drops lavender essential oil
4 drops sandalwood

4 drops lemongrass
Large deodorant stick (like this one:https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07Q38B8YS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1)  OR a small glass jar

METHOD:
Fill up a small sized pot with 2-4 cups water, bring it to a boil and reduce heat
Place a large bowl over the pot ready to double boil the ingredients
Add in the beeswax, coconut oil and shea butter
Allow them to melt together and combine
Add in the essential oils and take off the heat
Pour the mixture into your empty deodorant stick or glass jar (FYI this must be done quickly because the deodorant solidifies once it cools down)
