homemade deodorant without baking sodaYou can make your own deodorant by adding together equal parts of baking soda and cornstarch. This homemade deodorant has a good consistency that sinks right into your skin when you apply. If I still get a rash after awhile, I stop using it and switch to a different natural deodorant for a week and then switch back. I'm not sure why I didn't make this connection when shampooing my own hair, but I didn't until this latest baking soda kick I have been on. So if you make it too hard for your liking remember you can always remelt and add a wee more coconut oil to soften the bar or just moisten skin with witch hazel first. To reach this conclusion, the study from University of Ghent in Belgium made eight participants stop using deodorant or antiperspirant for a month. I use a homemade deodorant once daily but I can not use it on the days that I shave. Gel - This type of deodorant is clear when applied, which is preferred when you want to avoid staining your skin or clothes.

The waxy homemade deodorant, while it works great for odor control, and doesn't stain your clothes, can be a little cold and hard to apply on winter mornings, when the bedroom temperature hovers around 50°F. It's really fast, and easy, and one batch lasts for a really long time, so I'd encourage you to try making your own homemade deodorant today! Of course, the best type of deodorant is one that helps your teen feel more confident. Tea tree oil has antimicrobial properties that destroy the bacteria on your skin that causes body odor. I get beeswax at a local health food store and then grate it myself with a cheese grater. I've tried several different brands and homemade concoctions with no real success. Still, because of said 100+ degree weather the coconut oil is NOT solid when left out so it's kind of a gross process to apply it unless I leave it in the fridge.

Now that you know how to make homemade deodorant go and make yourself a batch, and keep your pits stink free without all those extra chemicals. The starch and baking soda help absorb sweat and the shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E oil help to moisturize your skin. Coconut oil has some nice antimicrobial properties that help shelf life and curb odor, but if you know your skin doesn't like it, you could try jojoba oil instead — which mimics human sebum. The problem with bentonite clay is it turns dark gray when wet and all the arm pits of my shirts turned black :-(. That is probably the best solution if you're hoping to use it in a deodorant stick container. Even if your natural deodorant is made up of all essential oils, alcohol could be lurking in the ingredients.

If I could afford virgin cold-pressed coconut oil I would not need to make my own deodorant; I could buy the natural stuff. I thought about the number of times Londyn nursed a day (too many to count…she was quite the milk drinker) and the deodorant that was applied close to my breasts, and therefore, my nursing babe. You can also spray the insides of your shoes with this to prevent bad smells from building up.

Melt together the shea butter, almond oil, beeswax, and zinc ricinoleate in a double boiler until the wax and zinc ricinoleate melt. I use a wooden popsicle stick to stir when needed and to dip" out the deodorant to apply it. I've also left the stick in the deodorant if I found that it was took soupy" after I made it, as it will soak up some of the oils in the mixture. They have three different spray deodorants: rose , sage , and citrus that I love to alternate.

Not only that I found you did not have to apply it every day like you would with a conventional deodorant It is effective, it is safe and it is natural. I have been using a version of your deodorant recipe for about 2 weeks now (found it somewhere else). To keep it smelling fresh between shampoos, use dry shampoo or sprinkle your scalp with baking soda. They also didn't seem to protect against odour as well as the coconut oil — perhaps because they don't offer the antimicrobial properties that cold-pressed virgin coconut oil does. I once tried to make this recipe with patchouli oil instead and it was a complete disaster. We haven't discussed deodorant lately, so I'll have to ask her if she's found something that works yet.

I loved this homemade deodorant, good odor control and does not leave you feeling greasy , the only problem I found is that after a few days of use my armpits started to get very irritated, art first i thought it was just the change, but then it just became too much.

Not only do sweat glands become more active at puberty, oil glands that affect the hair and face do as well. I made a batch (thank u for the recipe :)!) and put some of it in an old deodorant container, nto the fridge and to harden faster and when I went to take it out had melted" through or something. The only recipe I found with beeswax had a few too many ingredients and not enough beeswax. To use, let it rest against your skin for a couple seconds to soften the coconut oil, do one slow swipe under each arm and use the palm of your hand to spread it around. You can also pour it into tins, or pour any excess into storage containers, for applying the deodorant by hand. Always used in smaller quantities, it is soothing and cleansing and may be used in homemade bath bombs, mouthwash and even carpet cleaner. Pour the deodorant into a 4-ounce Mason jar The deodorant will solidify as it cools.
