Store-bought deodorant is full of all kinds of icky stuff. But some of the homemade or all-natural stuff just doesn’t work for me. I’ve finally found one that works great. It’s made from cornstarch, baking soda and coconut oil with a bit of essential oil mixed in. I absolutely love the citrus-cinnamon smell of the Christmas Spirit oil, but Purification works great for smelling nice, so choose what you like!
I’m planning to make my husband some manly deodorant with the Citrus blend essential oil next month. It sounds like a manly enough scent for him. What is your favorite scent?
Homemade Deodorant Stick
Makes 2 sticks
1/4 cup cornstarch (I use this kind) or arrowroot powder
1/4 cup baking soda (I buy it here)
1/4 cup coconut oil (I buy mine here)
10-20 drops essential oil of choice (Purification is great for odor elimination and I love the smell of Christmas Spirit)
Mix ingredients together by hand or in a stand mixer. Pack into deodorant containers. I used a large spoon to pour in the mixture and then regularly packed it down. When it was full, I smoothed the tops off with my hand.
