Below we have our favorite deodorant recipe. It is unbelievable!!! We have tried it and it worked amazing every time, it doesn’t matter how hot it is outside, you will be protected. It’s also a great alternative for girls who are just reaching the age of needing deodorant. It’s very easy for preparation and use, and if you want, you can even add essential oils in it for a “pretty smell”.
¼ cup of arrowroot powder or cornstarch (arrowroot is preferred)
6 – 8 tablespoons of Coconut oil (solid state)
¼ cup of baking soda
Combine portions of arrowroot powder and baking soda in the same ratio.
Slowly add coconut oil while stirring it in with a hand blender or spoon until it maintains a firm but pliable texture. It should be solid but able to be applied easily, about the same texture as commercial deodorant. If it is too wet, add more arrowroot cornstarch/powder to thicken.
You can either place it in a small container with a lid and apply it with fingers with each use or scoop it into your old deodorant dispenser. Makes about 1 cup. This recipe should last about 3 months with regular daily use for two people.
