In 5 minutes, you can make your own natural deodorant at home without all that icky Alzheimer’s disease!
Step 1: Materials
- Corn starch
- Baking soda
- Coconut oil
- Essential oils (opt. – adds smellpretty!)
- Vitamin E (opt. adds ooohskinsoft!)
- An empty container to be filled with your new deodorant
Step 2: Mix It Up
Combine 1/4 cup (60mL) cornstarch with 1/4 cup baking soda.
Step 3: The Genius Part
If it’s ever bothered you that you don’t know when your deodorant is going to run out until suddenly the whole thing has dropped out onto your bathroom floor rendering it scuzzy and no longer useful (though you pick out the gross and use it anyway) I suggest cutting out a piece of colored tissue paper to use as a flag.
Fill your container with about and inch or so of deodorant, insert your flag, and fill the rest of your container!
Step 4: Finis!
Clean up the container and make your own clever label for it (like you won’t remember what it is. . . )
just made it! Thank you|
Surprisingly, oregano oil (though potent at first) can smell quite refreshing and is an excellent anti-microbial/bacterial agent.
I made this and I loved it, however I have noticed that I now have a dark spot on my underarm has this happened to anyone else
I am using one that I bought with nearly identical ingredients and have noticed this as well.
Great, I am so glad its not just me! I need to look for a different recipe but my lazy self still hasnt done it yet. LOL
I made this using cinnamon and dragons blood oils, Works really well and smells great! It filled two empty deodorant stick containers.Thank you for this.
Lovely. I always have disliked the powdery scent of women’s deodorant. Now I can smell like lavender.
Thanks for posting!
Aluminum is bad news! Stay safe..go with Lavilin. It is consistently rated the best among all-natural deodorants.
Oh goodness people it’s not just the alluminum that’s causing alzhiemers.. It’s all the metals.. Small parts of the metals collect in the brain. Thus..alzhiemers. Zinc.. Copper. Ect. And yes skin does absorb these metals as well.
The most effective deodorant that I have ever used is Ozone Layer Deodorant, it also happens to be all natural. It’s just Shea butter and beeswax infused with oxygen, eliminating the bacteria that cause odor in the first place. It is so effective that you can apply it after you already experience some body odor, its incredible. Check it out at www.OzoneDeodorant.com
wow, so many ‘attacks’ on personal beliefs for a “how to” post. Regardless of whether or not you personally believe aluminum causes Alzheimer’s or breast cancer or any other disease for that matter; it still prevents your body from its natural processes which in and of itself can be toxic to your body. Sweat is a waste product produced by your body just like urine and feces. Sweating allows your skin to purge impurities (hence the reason native people often use what they called a sweat/hot box (and what we know today as a sauna) when they were ill. The reason big box companies add aluminum to their products is that aluminum enters the sweat glands when applied and when the individual begins to sweat the aluminum swells thus blocking the sweat pores and allowing the ‘waste’ of sweat to exit the body. So even if you don’t think that “low levels of aluminum” on a daily basis are toxic to your body, the process those low levels of aluminum prevents from taking place ARE toxic to your body’s overall well being. And that kids, is science!
I’ve been using blocks of alum. There are “good natural stuff” stores that sell big chunks of it as deodorant from the start. I hope I don’t have to tell you how expensive that thing can be! Then, since I know a bit of chemistry, I just go to a hardware store and by a barber’s stone, which is a rectangular block of “cast” alum. It doesn’t have aluminium in it, so it’s not irritant for my skin. The only downside is that I tend to drop my stones and curse at the small useless chunks on the floor!
Oh no! Look what I just found: Alum is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a food additive, but in large quantities — well, an ounce or more — it is toxic to humans. Alum is short for potassium aluminum sulfate. (Notice the aluminum in there?) Should have been obvious, but I guess that’s what kept me looking.
