Homemade Deodorant Without Baking Soda

When I learned about aluminum being in deodorant I decided to stop using it. I found a brand of deodorant at Target called Smidt's but the baking soda inside of it made my under arms itch. I decided that I would then make my own.


Why The Ingredients:

  • Coconut oil helps this deodorant to glide on easily.

  • Shea butter is derived from the nuts of the shea tree, grown in Africa. It’s incredibly moisturizing and can help to protect skin from dryness.

  • Beeswax is moisturizing and helps to keep this natural deodorant in a solid form that makes it easy to travel.

  • Arrowroot powder is made from the roots of the arrowroot plant, which is native to South America. It helps to keep skin dry and wick away moisture.

  • Bentonite clay helps to absorb moisture, and is good for detoxing toxins.



I don't have a double boiler so I used two pots and put one on top of the other.

I then combined all of the ingredients in the order listed and stirred it until melted.

then poured it into a deodorant container.

simple :-)
