I guess I finally crossed the line this time, I decided there has to be a better option than the natural deodorants for sale.. and I came up with my own! It’s so super easy and I think it works so much better than any natural brand I’ve tried…. You can buy empty new deodorant containers or you can just recycle used ones you’ve cleaned out.
My recipe made enough to fill 2 deodorant containers, I made one for me and one for Ray – only changing the essential oil scents. Here’s my recipe:
Over medium heat, melt together in a small pot – I have a old pot and spoon that I only use for beauty concoctions 🙂
1/8 cup Cocoa Butter (buy HERE)
2T Melted Bees Wax (I keep it melted in a recycled can and heat it in a pot of hot water) buy HERE
3T Coconut Oil (buy HERE)
Remove heat, Then add:
1/8 cup Baking Soda (aluminum free)
3T Arrowroot Powder (heaping tablespoons)
2T Kaolin Clay (buy HERE)
Once the dry stuff is mixed into the melted stuff, fill your deodorant containers.
Since I make 2 different scents – I just add in my essential oils into the liquid in the deodorant containers then stir with a wooden stick…
Allow to cool in the fridge until solid!
