Simple Homemade Deodorant Recipe
6 tbsp Cornstarch
2 tbsp Baking soda
3 tbsp Virgin Coconut Oil
15 drops Lavender essential oil
15 drops Melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil
10 drops Lemongrass essential oil
10 drops Rosemary essential oil
(Oil combinations are suggestions, use less or more if you wish)
1. In a small mixing bowl combine cornstarch, baking soda, and essential oils. Add one tablespoon of coconut oil at a time. Blend with back of spoon until past forms.
2. Store in covered container in a cool place. Apply with fingertips. Or clean out an old deodorant container and reuse.
In high temperatures, coconut oil will melt; in low temperatures, it will become hard. Store at room temperature to maintain the perfect texture. For roll-on deodorant, try doTERRA's fractionated coconut oil in place of virgin coconut oil. Clean out an old roll-on container and reuse.
