Various deodorants that we buy from cosmetic stores to neutralize the smell of sweat usually contain chemicals which can have negative impact on the skin and the sweat glands.
Although they are offering 24 hour protection, natural ingredients and care, they clog the pores and prevent the natural process of releasing harmful substances through the sweat.
In order to neutralize the smell from the sweat and to maintain proper function of the sweat glands all the ingredients should be natural and they shouldn’t cause allergies or serious diseases.
Therefore, it is best that you make homemade deodorant with the following ingredients:
- ½ cup baking soda
- ½ cup corn starch
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 20 drops of some essential oil
- Sterilized and dry jar
Mix the baking soda and cornstarch in a small bowl. Slowly add the melted coconut oil, and stir until the mixture becomes thicker than pasta, similar to glue.
Add essential oil by choice and stir well. Pour the mixture into sterilized jar and leave it in the refrigerator for about 1 hour until it becomes thick. Keep the domestic deodorant in cold and dry place and apply a little bit underarms every day.
