Now that I do not plan to purchase regular deodorant anymore I needed a replacement if that one day I forgot to use my Crystal stone and it ends up being a really stressful day where I sweat a lot; I have something to fall back on. In order to not smell up the workplace, I wanted to try to make a homemade deodorant with healthy and non toxic ingredients.
I found this tin among all of the garbage in my husband’s car and I was about to throw it or recycle it. This is a perfect size for storing my deodorant. Please note: I am not sure if I would travel with this container because if the deodorant does liquefy, I do not feel confidant that this container will contain what’s inside. This is really a trial run with this deodorant since I do not know if it will work for me. I will add an update after I give it a go for a few months.
I won’t document the process with images or a video since there is a great video on Trash is For Tossers here. The recipe is below.
2 Tablespoons Arrow Root powder
1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Shae Butter
5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil
Combine all of the above ingredients and melt down in a double boiler.
Transfer into a jar or a canister that has a lid and pop in the fridge for 10 minutes to solidify.
**You can replace Arrow Root powder with cornstarch. I had to order my Arrow Root powder online so if you already have cornstarch, use that instead.
