Homemade deoderant

Filed under: Uncategorized — fairyguts @ 7:28 am

I was inspired by a Pinterest post and used a recipe like this one to try making my own deodorant/antiperspirant. I like the idea of using fewer chemicals in my cleaning and hygiene products, but I am a fan of antiperspirant. All the alternative products I’ve tried so far are only deodorant and never quite made the grade.

I packed my concoction in an old deodorant tube and tried it for a week. It controlling my odor well, but the baking soda left my armpits feeling gritty and I started getting all red and raw. The other draw back was the coconut oil kept melting, so if I wanted it solid I had to store it in the fridge.

So, a good try, but not successful for me.

Next project!
