Homemade DIY Deodorant Second Recipe
This video takes you through making a homemade DIY deodorant that can be used in a stick.
In the video I used the recipe as it was given to me. However, since this was the first time I had tried to make a stick deodorant I didn’t try it out before making the video.
It turns out you need a lot more dry ingredient to make this one firm enough to be used in a stick. Here is the updated recipe:
- 1 Cup Baking Soda
- 1 Cup Arrowroot Flour
- 6 Tbsp Shea Butter
- 6 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
- 10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
- 25 drops of your favorite scented oil- Try Sandalwood, Cedarwood, or Cypress for Men. Try Lavender, Geranium, or Neroil for women. Try Vanilla for a unisex deodorant.
- Empty Deodorant Sticks (Buy online or save them after you empty them).
This homeomade DIY deodorant is a little more labor intensive because you have to use a double boiler to melt the shea butter and the coconut oil. But there is not need to go out and buy a double boiler.
You can easily fill a pan with water and then use a mason jar or glass measuring cup to place the ingredients in to melt. Using a measuring cup does make it easier to pour the melted ingredients when you get ready to put them into containers.
If you have sensitive skin the baking soda may irritate your skin due to its alkaline pH. If that is the case simply use a half a cup of baking soda and increase the arrowroot flour to 1 1/2 cups.
You can also substitute cornstarch for the arrowroot flour if you can’t find it in your local supermarket.
Try making this homemade DIY deodorant and let me know how it works for you in the comments.
