Now this homemade deodorant will not keep you from sweating. It is simply meant to keep you from stinking. Our bodies were meant to sweat. It's part of how we thermoregulate and release toxins. Sweat is not the enemy. Bacterial growth in the warm moisture of your armpit is. So this homemade product is great for controlling BO.
I do notice a bit of dampness but nothing extreme. I LOVE my new stuff! And there is no stink. Even the next day. I think this would be great for those of us who have children who are starting to wear deodorant. They surely don't need the yucky stuff and can start off right using a product that is healthy for them.
|Are you ready? These are all of the ingredients. I am not kidding. That's it. Coconut oil, corn starch, baking soda and essential oil. I got the recipe from Homestead Revival! Love that blog!|
|5-6 tablespoons of coconut oil.|
|1/4 cup of baking soda and cornstarch. I used my mixer to blend it all together until it was smooth.|
|Homestead called for optional tea tree oil. I opted for this oil blend. It's great because I need a chill pill at least 3 to 600 times a day. Now I carry one with me wherever I go! I used about 7-10 drops of this yummy stuff.|
