Cocoa & Shea Butter
One of the most effective natural deodorant recipes starts with melting 1 tbsp of cocoa butter and 2 tbsp of shea butter in a microwave safe dish. Next, add 1 tbsp of baking soda, 2 tbsp of cornstarch and tsp of Aloe Vera gel to the butters. To give your deodorant a personalized scent, you can also add about 20 drops of your favorite essential oil. Once all the ingredients are combined, pour the mixture into a stick shaped container and let it set.
For Sensitive Skin
If you have very sensitive skin, you can make a deodorant using arrowroot instead of cornstarch. Melt 2 tbsp of coconut oil, and then add 10 drops of tea tree oil, 2 tbsp of baking soda and 6 tbsp of arrowroot powder. You can also add a tsp of almond oil to the mixture to help soothe shaved skin. Once all of the ingredients are mixed together, pour it into a stick container. You can use an old deodorant container if you have one readily available. Allow the deodorant to set and then use as you normally would.
