Natural Deodorants

These are deodorisers only, but Shay said that after using hers for a couple of weeks, she noticed an antiperspirant benefit as well.

Shay’s Deodorant

¼ c coconut oil
¼ c shea butter
¼ c plus ½ tsp beeswax (Note: try using less for a more gel-like consistency)
1½ tbsp baking soda / bicarb
¼ c arrowroot powder
5 drops lavender oil
5 drops tea tree oil

Melt oil, butter, and wax together in a double boiler.  Remove from heat and add the soda and arrowroot.  Mix well and stir in the oils.  Pour into old deodorant sticks.

Alternative deodorant
(essentially the same as above, but different proportions and without the beeswax)

3 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp baking soda / bicarb
2 tbsp shea butter
2 tbsp arrowroot powder
Essential oils

Prepare as for Shay’s deodorant above.
