A bar of deodorant soap can be purchased for under $5.

Should you want to make a larger batch, just note the ratio is 3 parts arrowroot to 1 part baking soda, and then coconut oil to consistency. Do a patch test on your skin, a drop or two of tea tree oil cut with a tablespoon of coconut oil, and see if you react. I've found that I have to add more oil to the batch as it ages to bring the consistency back where it spreads well. I keep a small bowl of plain, dry carb soda in my bathroom to use as deodorant, and applied with a scrunched nylon bath ball. My SIL bought me a jar of homemade deodorant spray deodorant with the baking soda, coconut oil & cornstarch. The baking soda solution was completely liquid, so it usually ended up all over the place, leaving a white powdered mess behind once it dried.

It won't be as solid as a conventional deodorant stick, so don't twist it up very high before using it. Twist it just high enough (just a few millimeters, or 1/8 or 1/6 of an inch above the rim) to get what you need, but higher than that and you might smush some of it onto the sides.

The Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant Stick is formulated from stabilised aloe vera gel that is gentle on the underarms yet provides all-day protection against odour and can be applied directly after showering. Available in both cream and stick bar" options, Stinkbug Naturals Deodorant has one of the cleanest ingredients lists out there. Because the baking soda irritated my skin, I began to try out numerous baking soda free deodorant recipes that I found on the internet. The oil on the clothes hasn't been a problem - I hear you on some deodorants ruining clothes!

Add 1/4 cup shea butter or cocoa butter to the recipe for its healing benefits is another alternative. Its antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic qualities also add medical benefits and help this mixture's effectiveness as a deodorant. One did sweat for 2 weeks but then she stopped sweating as much, and still buys the deodorant to this day. I have been using only" baking soda which worked very well for close to a year; but now I am starting to feel that by the end of the day I have a yeasty" scent, and so need to take it to a new level.
