How To Make Homemade Powder Deodorant

Cut back on plastic packaging and store bought purchases and start making your own deodorant powder out of household ingredients! It's pretty easy to do but because this recipe makes a powder, it's important to think about application methods. I've heard everything from a damp wash cloth, to a powder puff. Check out the recipe after the jump!

What You will Need:

  • 1/2 cup of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of cornstarch
  • A few drops of an essential oil such as lavender

How to Make It:

Place the ingredients in a glass jar and shake to blend. It's that easy!

If you prefer a solid deodorant, try mixing up these ingredients with around a 1/2 cup of coconut oil.
