How To: Make Your Own Deodorant

by conwaycourtney

So, everyone knows that deodorant is pretty toxic. And if you don’t, now you do. It’s filled with aluminum which can cause breast cancer. So if you’re a women, you should probably some what concerned about sticking aluminum right by your breasts everyday. So, I’ve decided to go to Pinterest and look up some homemade recipes and found a few to try out. I tried this one and it surprisingly works even better than my old Secret deodorant ever has. It’s also pretty easy to make, which is always nice for a Pinterest DIY.


4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp of Tea Tree oil
4 Tablespoons Baking Soda
4 Tablespoons Cornstarch

Melt everything together until everything is blended. You can do this over the stove or in the microwave. Next put in to where you are going to store it. I just used an old Lush container which worked really well. You’ll be applying it as a paste so storing it in a pot is best.

Let me know if you tried the recipe and what you think of it in the comments below!
