So I made moisturiser and now onto deodorant since I ran out!! I’ve never really been a fan of deodorant in the first place, I’m not sure why but blocking your sweat glands doesn’t sound that healthy?? Maybe because I’m from a colder country it hasn’t been a priority. But thought I’d give homemade deodorant a go as it’s natural, cheaper and less waste is involved!
To make it all you need to do is melt a few tablespoons of coconut oil in a pan, add a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda and a few tablespoons of cornflour! Apparently the bicarb of soda is the most important ingredient. Then I just scooped it all into an old Lush container and that was it. Application wise I sort of just put it on like cream but I reckon you could get it into an old roll on deodorant package somehow. I’m not sure if this is what the consistency is meant to be like but it works so I won’t complain! Give it a try if you’re looking to reduce waste and have more natural products filling up your cupboards! Xx
