Powder
Put 1/4 cup each of baking soda and cornstarch in a bowl with 10+ drops tea tree oil.
natural moisture absorber (cornstarch), a natural deodorizer (baking soda), and a natural anti-bacteria/fungal oil (tea tree oil)

Stick
Same recipe but add 2tbsp coconut oil.
Empty out a used store bought deodorant stick and push this stuff in there. Apply very lightly. It will "set" (harden) in a few days.


Sensitive Skin
Increase the amount of cornstarch to 6T and decrease the baking soda to 2T.

Have you tested it out? How does it work for you?
My OH's physiatrist just recommended he switch to an all natural deodorant and I was coming here to ask for a recommendation.
This is even better! Especially since I have everything to make the stick for him right now.
Thanks!

I will be trying it out when I go to the store next

All the ingredients are things I already use (minus the coconut oil). I would highly recommend it even without trying it!

Coconut oil is a go to for near everything around here since the baby came along. If I feel better I'm going to whip it up tomorrow too.
