How To Make a Natural Deodorant

Deodorants are used all around the world to kill body odour. They are available in almost every market, and they come in several varieties.

Commercial-made deodorants contain controversial ingredients in their making. For instance, aluminium and parabens have been used to make the deodorants long lasting, but they have been linked with various conditions like Alzheimer’s disease to breast cancer when tested on animals.

Even though, the American cancer society has made it clear that more tests are needed to confirm whether these substances stimulate the aforementioned diseases or not, one can lower their body exposure to chemical ingredients by making a natural deodorant.

Preparation Time: Around 30 to 40 minutes.
Utensils: Wide-mouth container, cosmetic jar, cup, cotton, makeup brush, saucepan, spoon.

    Take a wide-mouth container or a cosmetic jar that has a lid. Clean it properly from the inside. Add 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of cornstarch in the jar or container. Close the lid tightly, and shake well to mix the ingredients properly. Apply the powder with a cotton ball or a makeup brush.

    Cream Deodorant

    Add 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of cornstarch in a small saucepan. Now, add 1 table spoon of coconut oil in the powder mixture and place the saucepan over the stove on medium heat. Oil and the powder mixture will blend together perfectly when heated, and will turn into a semi-solid mass after cooling.

    Now reduce your stove heat to the lowest, and slowly add up to 7 tablespoons of coconut oil or until it becomes a creamy mixture. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and set it aside to cool down before pouring the creamy mixture into a shallow glass jar that has a tight fitting lid. Apply the cream to your armpits with your fingers.
