AMY'S BLOG: Homemade Aluminum-Free Deodorant

Bobby was talking about how he bought new deodorant that smells awful on his skin. Heads up: it's called “swagger” by Old Spice, so don’t buy that one. It came up that I make my own deodorant, so some have been asking for the recipe I use. Well, here ya go!



1/3 cup of coconut oil (solid state)

1/4 cup baking soda (aluminum-free)

1/4 cup arrowroot powder essential oils (optional -- I used Vanilla)

Mix the baking soda and arrowroot powder in a glass bowl.
 Add the coconut oil (do not warm or melt it) and use a fork or pastry blender to thoroughly blend it into the dry ingredients.

Add 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oils and blend completely. Add more coconut oil or arrowroot powder/baking soda if needed until the texture is about the same consistency as commercial deodorant. 

Scoop the mixture into a small jar or container and store at room temperature. (Refrigeration may be required during summer months and warmer weather because the coconut oil will melt at 76 degrees).
