Simple, Detoxifying DIY Deodorant

After years of experimenting with natural deodorants, a friend made me some of the following deodorant recipe and it has been fail proof.  It’s the first time I have used a deodorant that I do not have to reapply multiple times a day, and that’s saying something for a fitness professional.

For this recipe I used:

3 oz. Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp Baking Soda
3 Tbsp Cornstarch
20-25 drops of Essential Oil of your choice (I used Tea Tree for it’s antibacterial benefits and Lemongrass and Orange for a nice citrus scent)

Optional 1-2 Tbsp Bentonite Clay
Optional 1/4 tsp activated charcoal

Note: some people may be sensitive to the grittiness of the recipe. If so, you can try adding in more coconut oil.

Let me know your thoughts when you try this out.
