Homemade Deodorant Coconut Oil Recipe

Homemade deodorant coconut oil recipes work great for those who wish to avoid the high cost of purchasing holistic deodorant. Of course this also makes it so that you don’t have to use those awful petroleum based deodorants! Shudder, they are so bad for you. I’m not convinced that antiperspirants are directly to blame for the increase in breast cancer for both men and women.  Putting aluminum right on  your lymph nodes can not possibly be good for you.

homemade deoderant Easy homemade deodorant coconut oil recipe with only three ingredients!

1/4 cup of the following:

  • Arrow Root
  • Baking Soda
  • Coconut Oil

Mix and then put into small glass mason jar or load into a deodorant dispenser. You can also add essential oils to this recipe. A few drops goes a long way. Keep in mind that adding essential oils could cause skin irritation.

You should also be sure to let the deodorant soak in a bit before putting on clothing as it might cause slight staining of the material because of the oil, though I haven’t had an issue with it myself.
