How To Make Deer Scents

home made deodorantSo we know that deodorants are packed with chemicals that are bad for you. I started doing an apple cider vinegar spray prior to applying this deoderant but that has not solved the problem either. The only time I really noticed body odor with plain baking soda was when I was due for a shower and wore synthetic silky PJs at nighttime. When I first tried making my own deodorant it failed because I put too much baking soda which made my underarms really red. I'm excited to try this simple because deodorant is getting too darn expensive!

The main deal with beeswax is that it helps keep DIY recipes solid without them melting, but I don't like how it feels heavy on my skin, especially during hot sweaty summer days where I'm looking for non-greasy skin care products so that's why I omitted it in this recipe.

If you are in a warmer climate, you can keep your deodorant in the fridge and remove a few minutes before applying. It keeps it's shape in the container but when I put it on it's very creamy (not like regular stick) Is there something that I can add, or take away, to make it a little harder! So I let it melt outside the fridge and poured it into a jar, and stick my finger in and get a pea sized amount and smear it on my armpits. Thank you for all of your really great ideas, we are actually tackling our oven this weekend using your description and the baking soda method….wish us luck!!

Suave Clinical Protection is an extra effective antiperspirant deodorant that provides 24 hour protection. I was using baking soda and glycerin, with a little clary sage essential oil to retard sweat, which works quite well. Measure out some corn starch, it doesn't really matter how much, just as long as you know how to make deodorant much baking soda to add next. Splash corporation makes an whitening deodorant called the Extract Papaya Calamansi Skin Whitening Deodorant. Been making my own deodorant for a while now using this recipe and it's awesome!

Whether you choose spray or stick antiperspirants, no product will make a significant difference if you don't practice sensible hygiene habits. I use rosewater in this recipe because it's slightly drying and astringent which is a good thing when it comes to deodorant. I bought a mineral deodorant (chamomile and green tea) I also exfoliate my armpit with baking soda and lemon juice, but that irritated my skin. Coconut oil hardens at just below room temperature and for whatever reason…we keep our house a bit on the cool side. I used all cocoa butter (no Shea), kaolin clay, soy wax, and no probiotic (had none)! I also added about 1 tsp calendula oil as an extra soothing ingredient for my sensitive skin.

I know other people on here have had a sensitivity to baking soda, but I've used baking soda on my skin before without issues (deodorants, exfoliants, etc.) I told my mom maybe we should leave out the baking soda next time, but she's concerned about odor control if we do that.

If the deodorant jar is large enough you could leave the deodorant in the jar and try heating it in a double boiler, then adding the oil directly in the jar (and deodorant) and stirring. Great easy-to-use fresh smelling deodorant with a cool feel to it. And it works real well! It's a pH thing- the baking soda makes your underarms unhospitable to odor-producing bacteria. For some people, JUST coconut oil works for them - maybe you are one of those lucky folks! I would strongly recommend not using the same essential oil for an extended amount of time. I've been using my own homemade deodorant for two years now, and I have no desire to go back. Some folks also just skip the baking soda, others have luck with simply coconut oil, and others find that certain brands of baking soda have fewer contaminants. Once the beeswax pellets are melted take your pan off the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Then measure out an equal amount of baking soda, and add it to the corn starch.

Not having one of those fantastic tubes on hand, I just poured my deodorant into a small mason jar. I guess I had been using regular deodorant (not even antiperspirant) for so long that my body really needed a massive cleansing. FYI - be careful with the tea tree oil - I found out the hard way that my skin can't tolerate that. A side note: If you're an avid store-bought deodorant user, it may take your body a little while to adjust to the natural deodorant - you may sweat a little more for a time. Non-organic deodorant brands include Old Spice, Speed Stick, Degree and Right Guard, and are also effective for psoriasis when skin sensitivity is moderate to mild.
