I will definitely have to try this.  I've been looking for a natural alternative to regular antiperspirant deodorant because of all the horror stories I've heard of it causing cancer.  Thanks for the recipe!

I've been using this (slightly modified, I do add a few drops of tea tree oil for anti-smelly-bacterial purposes) and I love it. Only a couple times in the summer did I feel the need to reapply, and sometimes when I've been lazy on the weekend and didn't shower for a couple days, I didn't have to reapply it at all the 2nd day. of course that's only if I was at home, indoors, doing nothing, being lazy as I mentioned Tongue  The funny thing is... I sweat LESS now that I'm not using an antiperspirant. Interesting no??

I am going to try making this with pure shea butter instead of coconut oil. Similar texture but shea seems to have a higher melting point (sort of just melts on your skin but is solid otherwise). I'll update you next month when I'm able to stick it in my old deo container.

Definitly going to try this. I think it's ridiculous to spend $4 on a bar of something that goes into your armpits.

One tube of chapstick will last you the rest of your life if you magically manage not to lose it.
Otherwise it's a one week supply AT BEST.

The only issue I had with it is that it melted.  I tried to keep it in the fridge, but that was way too much of a cool shock in the morning for me...but then again some people might find it refreshing!

In another thread here, people have talked about microwaving or heating it up so that the cornstarch binds together and then it supposedly doesn't melt.

What a fabulous idea! Homemade deodorant had never occurred to me, I am going to have to try this... thanks for posting the recipe!

I would love to do a personal swap for stuff for my lonely, empty walls!

This stuff really does work. I have been making my own deodorant for a while now!
