Quick Stick Deodorant
Making a perfumed body powder is simply done with a few kitchen cupboard classics
rather than spend a fortune on a store bought brand. Simply sweep a small amount of organic coconut oil on top of makeup and leave it alone. I buy my coconut oil by the gallon from them and love it. I also got the arrowroot and essential oils from them as well. You will get a deodorant powder that is just as effective in the end but a little more friendly for those with a corn sensitivity. One reader suggested using zinc oxide and I highly recommend substituting this in place of the baking soda.
Luckily, I was able to treat the stains with a combination of white vinegar, baking soda, peroxide and hot water. Yes, it should work to put the mixture in an old deodorant container if you prefer applying it that way, because it does firm up nicely, even without refrigerating. I personally didn't have the detox, but it may have been because I was already using a natural deodorant.
I used a home made thieves oil, which is highly anti bacterial and very good for the body, with coconut and olive oils, some shea butter….clay would have been a great addtion… and while it made the deodorant a little slicker, I didn't stink, though I smelled like Christmas spice all year….
It wasn't until AFTER I added the clay that I wondered why no one had talked about the fact that this would RUIN your clothes. Putting bentonite
clay and apple cider vinegar in my pits would just further irritate and dry them out, so I wouldn't recommend detox" as an answer to anyone and everyone having a reaction to this or other formulas.
I had tried the crystal, which did nothing for me. I didn't have all the ingredients, but I mixed up the coconut oil and baking soda and it really worked! So even if you're currently at your ideal weight and have great skin and oral health, there are still significant reasons you should consider consuming coconut oil on a daily basis. One important thing to remember is there will be some adjustment if you're switching from an antiperspirant to this homemade deodorant with coconut oil
recipe-because this isn't an antiperspirant! He won't let me make him his own deodorant yet, but maybe if I make it smell like bacon…. Try using any essential oil scent you like, but pick something that smells good mixed with coconut—the coconut oil contributes scent, too. Some brands of coconut oil I like are from Trader Joe's, Aldi, Tropical Traditions, Nutiva, Spectrum, and Nature's Way. I found an article by Dr. Christine Farlow, outlining the 7 ingredients that you should avoid in your deodorant.
