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!
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.
