Creatively Simple ~ How to Make Homemade Deodorant
Most store bought deodorants these days contain harmful chemicals. Anytime we can make our own soaps and beauty products we usually end up saving money, and benefiting from a much healthier product. Homemade deodorant is very simple to make and can be made using any scent you like, without the harmful chemicals. It works just as well if not better. The baking soda and corn starch can be purchased anywhere, along with an inexpensive Coconut oil. We use the Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil and really like it. It is more expensive but also has a nice coconut smell. Especially with the coconut smell the extra scents are not necessary. It is all a matter of preference.

How does the deodorant “dry”? Is it “sticky” when men use it or does it dry quickly and nicely? Thanks.
it dries nice

Thanks Penny for this awesome recipe! I have been using Tropical Traditions coconut oil for several years now for many things: cooking, moisturizer, acne treatment, deodorant. I just rub in the hands to warm/liquify and start rubbing. I have been using the coconut oil straight as deodorant but now I can make a real deodorant and not feel so weird when I tell people I use coconut oil. I love your recipe and its so easy. I want to try adding som imitation coconut or lemon and see if it works for me as I love those smells.
I recommend this recipe to everyone!
You have great recipe ebooks. I have a just a few but I love them, laundry soap and rag curls. We use them and love them. I print them out and put them in a binder I use for organizing my kitchen and home notes.
Great Job! You are truly a blessing and you have “creative” talents!
