Originally, my deodorant recipe was great. But I found a few problems with it.
1. I was still sometimes stinky especially after dancing.
2. I was getting this white powder on my clothes from the shae butter.
So, my original recipe included arrowroot powder, coconut oil, shae butter and essential oils.
I then tried no pong, a brand of natural deodorants that does work really well. The only thing they include that is extra to my recipe is bees wax (instead of shae butter) and bi carb soda (the ingredient to make you not smell).
So I have now modified the recipe to be
2tbsp bi carb
1tbsp coconut oil
1tbsp cedilla wax (vegan version of bees wax, can be found at biome)
Double-boil everything but the essential oils until it makes a paste. Take off heat and add essential oils and stir. Put in a container and refrigerate overnight. You can keep it out of the fridge after this time.
