How To: Make Homemade Deodorant

It really is that easy. A few notes:
  • You can find the coconut oil in the health food department of almost any grocery.
  • Add essential oil if you want it to be scented. I recommend tea tree oil because it smells great and has anti-bacterial qualities.
  • Keep your jar in the fridge or your oil will get a little melt-y. I re-used a pimento jar.
  • Enjoy knowing exactly what is going on (and in) your skin!

this sounds fantastic. I'm going to use you as a test. I'm going to see how you like it in 6 months when it's 95 degrees out. You will then have to tell me your honest opinion before I go for it...

It works!It works! Even on the treadmill I didn't sweat (as much)!

Interesting idea. How do you put it on? If you put it on with your fingers, doesn't it leave an oily residue that is hard to wash off?
