In 5 minutes, you can make your own natural deodorant
at home without all that icky Alzheimer's disease! I started using matcha in my first homemade deodorant, a recipe that I almost posted on this blog last year. It's smoother than the average baking soda deodorant, but grainier and not as smooth and creamy as my zinc oxide deodorant. Neem oil is bitter, so dogs won't lick it. HOWEVER, MAKE SURE THAT UR DOG ISN'T ALLERGIC TO THIS MIX. There is one thing about this formula that you can change quickly, and that's making a better selection in your deodorant. Dr. Winston Wong, a podiatrist based in Manhattan, has your simple solution: put deodorant on your feet. Combine 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/2 cup of cornstarch
and a few drops of essential oils such as lavender or cinnamon to give it a hint of sweet smell. I hope someone could maybe guide me a little as i want to stick with this deodorant so much!! As far as clean up, I melted my beeswax in a mason jar I use specifically for that purpose.
I've always tried to use natural deodorant but since I moved to Asia I've found it really challenging to keep this up. I haven't found ONE woman's deo that doesn't have aluminum except for spray-on deo which has butane and all kinds of other nasties.
I just bathed my dog with this mixture except i accidently got the clear liquid soap and it was not antibacterial, i added some vitamin E oil that comes in a bottle from the dollar store, she smells great right now and she is so soft, i think we will be using this again!!!....Thanks so much for the dog shampoo recipe!!!
I come from a family of sweaters & thought I'd have to bear the burden forever, but this homemade deodorant WORKS and has LITERALLY changed my life. It smells like alcohol, but can be supplemented with a few drops of your favorite essential oil. I made this deodorant and put it in 2 containers for my mom and me to try, and it did a great job the first 4-5 days. When the wax is completely melted, add the cornstarch/arrowroot and baking soda, and mix until thoroughly combined. If you want easier mixing, melt the coconut oil first and then let harden before using.
I've been using homemade deodorant for a few years now, after I got fed up with the traces left by regular deos, the strong headache-inducing perfume of some, the prohibitive prices of some well known natural brands and the fact that no deodorants worked as well as I expected them to.
I've been using this type of home made deodorant
for about three years.Â At the start I developed itchy red bumps under my armpits, though didn't get the peeling you've described.Â After much experimenting I found that modifying the dry ingredients to 1 part baking soda to 3 parts arrowroot/cornstarch fixed the problem.
I very recently made my first batch of your deodorant down in Florida while we were there on vacation…a small batch (1/8 cup each of baking soda and arrowroot powder and 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil that I first softened in the sun out on the patio-a window sill should work too).
