Recipes adapted from: sustainablecooks.com
- 1 tbsp and 1 tsp baking soda (where to get it)
- 20 drops lemon eucalyptus essential oil (where to get it)
- 4 tbsp coconut oil (where to get it)
- 5 tbsp corn starch (where to get it)
- First, Combine all ingredients (except the essential oil) in a pan over a low flame.
- Then, Stir with a wooden spoon until everything melts.
- Now let it cool off for about a minute then gently pour it into a GLASS jar. Do not use plastic because it’ll melt.
- Add the lemon eucalyptus essential oil and stir well with a chopstick. You can use this small ball glass jar. It will get into a kind of creamy but more solid consistency that you can easily scoop out with your finger. I love this consistency.
- Voila! It’s ready! Store at room temperature in a cool dark place. It lasts over 3 months!
- To use, scoop out only a tiny pea sized amount using a clean fingertip and apply. Make sure to use clean and dry fingers – do not introduce water into the deodorant. This homemade deodorant has a good consistency that sinks right into your skin when you apply. Even if you have armpit hairs, you can still use it without any problems – it will not leave a trace like some store bought deodorants that are a chalky mess.
