Earth & Oil Deodorant Recipe

I posted a recipe for homemade deodorant a couple of weeks ago. It was fantastic for eliminating odor, but it irritated my underarms. I think the baking soda was the culprit. So, daughter and I developed a new concoction that we think will work famously. If you so desire, try this recipe.
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp emu oil
  • 4 tsp bentonite clay
  • 2 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tbsp aloe vera gel
  • 30 drops various essential oils:
  • 7 drops tea tree EO
  • 4 drops eucalyptus EO
  • 6 drops lavender EO
  • 7 drops geranium EO
  • 6 drop jasmine EO

How to mix:

  • Use a ceramic or glass bowl
  • Mix the coconut and emu oils together
  • Add the bentonite clay and mix well
  • Add the arrowroot powder and mix well
  • Add the various essential oils and mix well
  • Lastly, add the aloe vera gel and mix well
  • Place the mixture in your container of choice. I prefer a small glass jar
  • Place in the refrigerator and allow to set
  • When ready to apply, use your fingers; rub gently into our underarms
