How To Make the Best Homemade Aluminum Free Deodorant-Antiperspirant: Easy Recipe!
Best Natural Deodorant
There are many deodorant brands that claim to be all natural deodorant or that they are made with natural deodorizers. Does it really matter if it is made with natural deodorizers but contains unnatural chemicals in it too? No! It's just a scam! One of the most recent deodorants I used was Arm & Hammer deodorant and it claimed to be made with natural deodorizers but it had triclosan in it, which studies have shown it can cause all sorts of problems & many claim it causes cancer! Triclosan is a chemical they put into your hand soap normally and some reports have shown that it doesn't even kill bacteria. So, why does Arm & Hammer put this into their deodorant? Anyway, their deodorant made my underarms burn too and didn't work well. Most deodorant brands that work contain aluminum as their active ingredient but it has been shown to cause problems like Alzheimer’s and other issues too. That's why I had to make my own natural deodorant without aluminum.
Homemade deodorant using coconut oil is the best way for me. I have tried other natural deodorants like Toms deodorant but it is too weak for me! Coconut oil deodorant is awesome & it's an aluminum free deodorant. There are many health benefits associated with coconut oil & this organic deodorant has worked better for me then all of the deodorants I have ever tried in my entire life. This DIY deodorant & antiperspirant works the best against odor and sweat!

- Empty out an old used deodorant container completely.
- Pour your mix into the deodorant container until full and make sure the part that is used to push up the deodorant is at the very bottom before you add your mix so that you can use it as normal when you are ready to use.
- Put the deodorant into the freezer immediately so that the ingredients don't start to separate in the deodorant. Freeze the deodorant for at least a few hours or until completely solid.
- Transfer the deodorant into the refrigerator and just only take it out when you are using it and keep it in the fridge so it will stay solid.

Using Too Much Baking Soda Can Cause a Rash
When I first tried making my own deodorant it failed because I put too much baking soda which made my underarms really red. I had a rash and it hurt, so that is why I made this new recipe with less baking soda in it. For me, it is just the right amount; It helps with odor, doesn't hurt at all and my underarms are not red. This is the best deodorant I have ever used! If you try it and think you need more baking soda for yourself then add a little more into your mix until you find the right amount for you. Some people don't have such sensitive skin like me and baking soda doesn't bother their skin.

This DIY deodorant & aluminum free antiperspirant is the greatest deodorant/antiperspirant I have ever used. It's a solid deodorant and it smells like coconut. There is no need for essential oils for scent and some essential oils can cause rashes on your skin too. I do not use any essential oils but might try one day just to experiment.
