This is my favorite one so far!!  I have used natural deodorants for years.  Lots of different brands.  They would work for a little bit then not so much anymore.  I have used plain coconut oil and had moderate results.  I used vinegar for awhile but the smell never seem to fade.  When I came across this recipe and read lots of different reviews I thought it would be the best choice for me.  Since I had a little success with coconut oil in the past I figured in combination with these other great ingredients it would be great... so far, I am right! 

The Recipe:
5-6 T of coconut oil
1/4 cup of cornstartch or arrowroot powder
1/4 cup of baking soda

Mix well until you reach the consistency you desire.  Mine was really soft at first but has hardened a bit.  I store it in a wide mouth glass container and just scoop some out and use as needed. 

A lot of things I have found about deodorant suggests it not to be used everyday.  With an active daily life and exercise routine I haven't been brave enough to try this.  Maybe over fall break I will give it a try.

  1. Don't do it :) don't stop wearing it!! A very close family member of mine doesn't wear it and I feel bad but this person does not smell good! I think I will try this though. I wonder if it will work during my work out :)
