Deodorant Recipe #2 (stick version)

Friday, March 31, 2017

Why would you need to make your own deodorant when you can easily purchase it at the store when you buy your weekly groceries? Deodorant is a product we use everyday and a staple in most peoples homes... this staple contains ingredients that have been connected to breast cancer and Alzheimers...

This recipe is straight from the pages of my book: ApotheKayla Year One and I have decided to share it with you here because it is such an awesome recipe and one that I know you all will love!

Lurking in the ingredient list of the average deodorant are harmful substances such as aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, phthalates, & triclosan. Read more about why I quit using regular deodorant on my scoop-able deodorant recipe by clicking here.

On to the good stuff!! The recipe:

I made three batches at one time (note the three Tablespoons of beeswax).

 -1 Tablespoon beeswax
 -2 Tablespoons Shea butter
 -2 Tablespoons coconut oil
 -2 Table spoons baking soda
 -2 teaspoons vitamin E oil
 -10 drops of essential oils


1.On a double boiler or small crockpot melt down beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil. Stirring occasionally.
2.Remove from heat and stir in baking soda a little at a time, then add essential oils, and vitamin E oil.
3.Place into the container of your choice (I found mine at a thrift store and they are actually reuseable twist up push-pop containers, but you can also order deodorant containers online), let cool, and enjoy!

You may choose any essential oils you prefer. Lime is a natural odor eliminator, or wild orange would smell nice.

Want to know more about where I purchase my essential oils? Send me an email.

Let me know what you think about this recipe, I love it because even in the summer when I'm busy & sweaty it keeps me smelling fresh all day long!

Thanks for reading & remember "sharing is caring". ;)
