Why DIY Deodorant? Well… I got sick of all the plastic that comes with a store bought deodorant and thought I would try making my own.
I googled a simple recipe on a New Zealand site that didn’t have weird ingredients which are hard to purchase in New Zealand and added them to the shopping list.
All the deodorant required was
- 1/4 cup of cornflour
- 1/4 cup of baking soda
- 10 drops of essential oil (tea tree oil was suggested for its disinfectant properties but I’m allergic to that on my skin so I’m trying some rose oil)
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
mix it all together and you get the below:
Now I just have to try it and see if it works! I am sincerely hoping that I am not allergic to any of the contents on my skin 🙂
If it does work I will try the coconut oil exfoliating scrub that a friend suggested which is a mix of coconut oil and sugar :).
