HOMEMADE DEODORANT - It feels GREAT to be Aluminum FREE!!! I have been using homemade deodorant for almost a year and it works WONDERFULLY! YESSSSS my sweating has STOPPED since I switched from using commercial deodorants. There are a few recipes where some people use 1/4 cup of baking soda to match the 1/4 cup of cornstarch. My skin is very sensitive to baking soda b/c it can be abrasive so I reduced the amount and it works fine for me. There is no right or wrong way to make this. It`s based on your personal preference. As far as shelf life, tea tree oil is an antibacterial and vitamin E is a natural preservative so my guess would be a few months. The ingredients and measurements are as follows:
1 ounce of pure cocoa butter (I got from CVS for $1)
1/4 cup of cornstarch
2 tablespoons of baking soda
5 drops of tea tree oil
5 drops of lavender essential oil
1 drop of pure vitamin E oil
3/4 teaspoon of sea fresh fragrance oil- purchased from camdengrey(dot)com
The average cost of making my own deodorant, which is FREE of harsh chemicals is around $1.50, NOT BAD!
