There's a thread here somewhere w/ a recipe for homemade deodorant. I've been using it for about a week now and I love it!!

It's baking soda, cornstarch and coconut oil. I waited until my "normal" stick of deodorant was empty and then put my new mixture in the empty stick. Works like a gem!

What is the recipe if you don't mind me asking? Being sensitive to many types of Deodorant it can be expensive. I would love to try this recipe out

1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tbsp of coconut oil

But I found it needed more coconut oil (don't know how much I put in) to get it to the right consistency.

Thanks also where did you find your coconut oil, is it with the baking stuff or over by like the vitamins? I'm going to look for some tonight when I go shopping along with tea tree oil.

So I had to stop using this, I started getting a rash. It's from either the baking soda or cornstarch, not the coconut oil. Very odd!

could be either! Try substituting arrowroot for the cornstarch (same quantity).

I don't think it's the baking soda, if anything my body needs to be more alkaline!

Under my left arm it's a bit swollen

I don't have any arrowroot to substitute, I could have sworn I did. BUT I tried something else.

I have this stick of cocoa butter (it's in like a large chapstick tube), and I tried that and... pretty impressed!!
