The first question that comes to anyone’s mind is why make your own antiperspirant when you can just buy one from the store for a few bucks? Right❓
With all the information out there regarding the scary things they put in deodorants which causes cancer and what not, the only thing in my head was, who in their right mind would actually even want to touch, forget go and buy store bought chemical loaded antiperspirants when knowing how harmful it is for us? Not me! 🚫
Now this post isn’t to give any scientific explanation and evidence about this whole deal, you can read about it everywhere on the internet, so let’s just move on with the recipe, shall we? 🏃
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
3 tablespoons of baking soda
3 tablespoons of cornstarch
A few drops of essential oils of choice (optional)
- Melt the coconut oil if it is solid
- Mix the ingredients into a stiff paste
- Spoon the mixture into your bottle of choice, it could be a glass jar, an empty deodorant bottle, anything you prefer.
- Cool in the fridge until it is firm and apply as usual!
How easy was that?? No chemicals, an all natural deodorant within minutes! The baking soda helps keep the bacteria in your pits at bay, the cornstarch absorbs the sweat and the coconut oil keeps the skin soft, supple and moisturized. Oh and coconut oil is anti bacterial too! Awesome, isn’t it? 💫
Now you can always adjust the amounts to the concistency you desire, hence, if you want it more runny, use more Coconut oil, more stiff, use more cornstarch. And if you feel like you need more protection from those bacteria guys, use more baking soda and you will be good to go! ✨
Each one of our requirements are different, so play around with the measurements until you reach your perfect spot! Trust me guys, the chemical loaded ones do more harm than good, don’t even go near those dangerous things! ❎
I hope you give making your own antiperspirant a try! Take care! 👋
