Summer Deodorant

summer deodorant

I have made 4-5 different homemade deodorantDIY Deodorant batches. Each time I’ve done a little something different. I enjoyed my last batch but I was looking for something a little more firm for the summertime. The easiest way to achieve this is to incorporate some beeswax; but not too much or you will have rock deodorant. Summertime deodorant is basic & easy!

This time I used:

  •  1/3 oz Shea Butter
  • 3/4 oz Beeswax (I would recommend using less if you do not want an ultra firm stick)
  • 1/2 oz Baking Soda
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 1/2 oz Arrowroot Powder (you can also use Cornstarch)
  • 1/2 oz Rosemary Powder (OPTIONAL)
  • 10-20 drops essential oil–I used Tea Tree Oil

To Prepare:

  1. Over a double boiler on your stove top meltSummer Deodorant the Beeswax first (it takes the longest) then add the Shea Butter & Coconut Oil.
  2. Add in the powders and stir until combined.
  3. Remove from heat & add in the essential oil.
  4. Pour into empty, clean containers.
  5. Place containers into the fridge to solidify the deodorant but remove and bring to room temperature to use.
