There is a drawer in my bathroom – http://www.speakingtree.in/search/bathroom that is stuffed full of different natural deodorants. I’ve been using homemade deodorant without baking soda – https://www.smore.com/023eg-homemade-deodorant-or-spray-option deodorant for a few years now, after I got fed up with the traces left by regular deos, the strong headache-inducing perfume of some, the prohibitive prices of some well known natural brands and the fact that no deodorants worked as well as I expected them to.
You are thinking this is one of those over-the-top blogs about getting all kinds of tubes and scales and measuring tools together along with hard-to-find ingredients so that you can save about $.50 per package over the regular natural” deodorant that you have been buying at the health food store.
I then tried to make it softer, more like a cream, by adding more coconut oil (in liquid form), and that was ok when applying, but later on again, when I brushed my fingers on the armpits, the pieces were coming off from there as well, just as before.
When working with these sorts of recipes, I work in grams and ounces because it is very difficult to quantify in volume ingredients like beeswax (some people use sheets, others use beads of varying sizes, etc.). Plus, some of the ingredients are used in such small amounts (less than 1/4 tsp.) that I wouldn’t know what measurements to use.
I very recently made my first batch of your deodorant down in Florida while we were there on vacation…a small batch (1/8 cup each of baking soda and arrowroot powder and 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil that I first softened in the sun out on the patio-a window sill should work too).
I can shower and an hour later, I smell.) Anyway, there was no time to undress, wash the pits,” dry them off, apply the deodorant, and then re-dress, so I simply lifted up my blouse, held my fingertip in the jar of deodorant long enough to let some melt (sort of) ON my fingertip and proceeded to apply a small amount to each underarm.
But rather than just consider this post a casualty of the Great Move, I knew I had to write it. For my homemade deodorant went through the greatest test deodorant can undergo: packing up an entire apartment in Hawai’i, in the middle of August, in high humidity, with no air conditioning, and being too tired to shower for days on end because what’s the point because I’m just going to get hot and sweaty again tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.
I think it’s that my body is happy with the lack of chemicals so it isn’t working so hard to get it the heck out ðŸ‚ My husband is a baseball player and very sweaty under the pits and hasn’t gone so far as to entrust his pits to me (isn’t that what marriage is about?!), but he did take my advice and stop using his ultra-extra-hulk-strength deodorant for a few days in place of something simple like baby powder.
