*EASY DIY* Natural Deodorant for sensitive skin!

  • Published: 04 June 2017
  • Today we're making natural deodorant, safe for those with sensitive skin!

    Here is the recipe:
    1/3 cup coconut oil
    3 Tbs. beeswax, grated or pellets
    2 Tbs. shea butter
    1/3 cup arrowroot powder
    2 Tbs. baking soda
    10 – 15 drops essential oils (I put in 10 Melaleuca and 5 Lavender)

    1. Melt coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter using the double boiler method.

    2. Once completely melted remove off heat and whisk in arrowroot powder and baking soda. Then add essential oils. Mix thoroughly, but quickly as mixture will start to thicken.

    3. Pour into two empty deodorant containers and let your homemade deodorant sit until completely set (usually a couple of hours)
    (If you don't have deodorant containers, you could put it in a jar and just use your fingers to apply, messier, but it works!)

        This recipe does have a creamier consistency, if you like the recipe you usually make, just decrease the baking soda by half or so and see how that goes! Happy making :)

        Katalin Kovács it’s a very small amount in this recipe. I get a rash from all the store bought natural deodorants with baking soda, but not from this one! but feel free to omit!

      Tip. Always buy beeswax from your gou try as you don't know if foreign hives have been infested or sprayed with pesticides.

      I use Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Vit E Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Bicarbonate Soda, Pink Himalayan Salt Grounded to powder, Yellow Beeswax pellets, And whatever fragrance the customer orders - if found Orange & Bergamot to be nice.

      I combine everything and melt it all then I strain it thru a drive and add the oil in sterilized Glue Sticks from both my son's class, Or Deo Push-Up tubes or Maxi 15g Tubes ( From the Australian Partner of Bramble Berry called Aussie Soap Supplies
