The cons of conventional deodorants

We are so mindful of what we put on our plates and skin, but when it comes to deodorants for under our arms, many people seem to be less concerned. That’s exactly why conventional deodorants that can contain toxic ingredients are still sold and used today. Some ingredients in conventional deodorants can negatively impact hormone levels. Parabens are used as preservatives in deodorant products, but they have been shown to interfere with estrogen production. And phthalates have shown to disrupt testosterone production. Another common ingredient, triclosan, is used to kill bacteria on the skin’s surface, but may impact thyroid function. Meanwhile, aluminum has been shown to interfere with estrogen action. It’s clear that sticking to safe, natural ingredients in your homemade deodorant is important, especially because it’s being used daily on such a porous area of your body.

Best ingredients for DIY deodorant

1. Baking soda

Baking soda has antibacterial and anti-fungal effects, and it effectively absorbs moisture. It can be used in quite a few DIY recipes, including toothpasteshampoo and home cleaners. When mixed with a liquid or oil, it will create a paste that can be rubbed under your arms to fight odor. Some people experience dryness and irritation from using baking soda on the skin, but there are alternatives that will serve the same purpose. 2. Arrowroot powder If you are sensitive to baking soda or experience irritation after using it for some time, arrowroot powder is a great alternative. Like baking soda, it works as an absorbent with antimicrobial properties. You can use it in place of baking soda or combine the two to make a solid homemade deodorant. 3. Coconut oil There are many benefits of coconut oil for skin, including its ability to soothe the skin, kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. When combined with a powder like baking soda or arrowroot, it will create a paste that solidifies at room temperature. Adding coconut oil to your homemade deodorant will reduce dryness and irritation under your arms, too. 4. Essential oils Using essential oils to make a homemade deodorant stick will add a pleasing aroma and provide additional benefits, like providing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. You can personalize your recipe with gentle oils, like lavender, lemon, sage, rosemary, bergamot and cypress. You can choose the scents that appeal to you. If you’re looking for a simple, clean aroma, go for lemon or bergamot.

How to make your own natural deodorant

It’s easy (and inexpensive) to make your own deodorant at home, and it doesn’t require many ingredients. Just follow these simple steps and keep your stick at room temperature to keep it solid. If it’s exposed to higher temperature and becomes oily, it’s okay to keep using it, just mix it up again. Ingredients ½ cup coconut oil ½ cup baking soda or arrowroot powder 40–60 drops essential oils – lavender, lemon and/or sage or cypress, rosemary and/or bergamot Empty deodorant containers or glass jar Directions: In bowl, combine coconut oil and baking soda until mixture reaches paste-like consistency. Stir in essential oils until fully combined. Pour into deodorant container or glass jar and store in a cool place.
