Ingredients: 1/4 baking soda, 1/4 cornstarch and  5 tablespooons of coconut oil
mix together and store in a jar or used deodorant container.
This works really well and held up during my Zumba workout.

My inspiration came from http://www.tammysrecipes.com/homemade_deodorant_recipe

Do you think you could you use another oil besides coconut? Really great idea, I've been wanting to switch to a natural deodorant.

I'm no expert, but I bet you could use tea tree oil.

This is roughly the same deodorant recipe I use! It's awesome and even lasts more than a day (for those days when you are feeling too lazy to shower).  Tongue
I made it without the starch once and man did the baking soda burn my pits without the starch buffer!


You can use any vegetable oil in place of the coconut oil (I use olive).

Tea tree oil is an essential oil that is very concentrated and should only be used in small amounts. I've added a few drops of lavender oil to this recipe for fragrance.

Cool man, I have to try this! I haven't seen any containers to put it in like that in Australia though...

You could add a few drops of tea tree oil but it would not be a substitute for coconut oil.

You could use palm kernal or babassu potentially.

Just a bit of a warning tho....tea tree oil tends to start disolving plastics.  It makes stiff plastic go all gooey and rubbery

i've been trying to find the perfect deodorant recipe. i'll have to try this one.
does this deodorant apply smoothly without coming off in big smears? i find that with most homemade deodorants, the stick easily gets smooshed around when applying.

Trying this!  Since the investment is so small (really, cornstarch and baking soda!), it's silly not to just test it out!
