We’ve been using homemade deodorant for several years now and still love it. The combination of baking soda, arrowroot, and coconut oil offers the best stink protection I’ve come across, and it provides the protection without the use of any potentially problematic fragrances or other chemicals.
The only downside to this deodorant is that you keep it in a jar, and because coconut oil melts at around 76 F, during the summer it can get a little goopy. Soft is good because it’s easier to put on, but goopy just gets a bit messy.
Fortunately, adding a bit of beeswax (which has a much higher melting point) completely solves this problem. We get to keep the original formula that works so well and add convenience. If you’ve been hesitant to try because of the jar, give this easy homemade deodorant stick a try!
