DIY Deodorant Recipe

 I recently discovered a DIY deodorant recipe that works!  It's simple to make and uses natural ingredients, which I love.  I've been using this deodorant for a while, and it works great.  I love that it's free of harmful chemicals and keeps me smelling fresh all day.  Give it a try!   DIY deodorant recipe, easy to make that smells amazing and works too!  This homemade natural deodorant recipe has ingredients; you can have it ready in under 10 minutes.  This homemade natural deodorant recipe will quickly become a staple in your daily body routine.

Homemade deodorant is so much better for you.  First, I searched high and low to develop a recipe for homemade deodorant that works.  After much trial and error, I didn't devise any homemade deodorant that worked for me because the summers in Texas are brutal.  

Either way, I wasn't 100% confident in my deodorant; we were smelly, stained our clothes, or burned/itchy armpits.  Also, I have found some natural deodorants on the market that work very well.  

I refuse to use run-of-the-mill deodorants because they can be toxic and harm our bodies.  I'm going to share a recipe that worked.  Hopefully, you will have better luck.  If you make it, let me know your results.

Natural Deodorant Recipe With Beeswax

I never thought the day would ever come when I would be interested in natural beauty or anything.  Natural beauty routine, natural skin care products, and apple cider vinegar seem to be EVERYWHERE, so I embraced it in due time.  I have an inner hippie vibe and decided to leap into natural living and homemade Natural Deodorant.  I also make homemade Shea Body Butter that leaves my skin smooth and silky. 

Up until several years ago, if you had asked me if natural deodorant would be part of my hygiene routine, without a doubt, I would have laughed in your face, and  I would have found it to be humorous.  But look at me now, admitting to using it and encouraging others to do the same.  Oh my, how times change.

Why Use Natural Deodorant?

 Have you ever taken the time to look at the ingredients of conventional deodorant? I'm sure you have glanced at the bottom of traditional bath products and seen a list of ingredients written in a different language.  Did you know that most components may be highly harmful and toxic to your body?

Let's take a look at a couple of them: 

  • aluminum;
  • -parabens;
  • phthalates; and
  • -Triclosan

  • 4 oz Fractionated coconut oil (liquid)  (BUY HERE)
