All natural deodorant

This post is for Alton, who is interested in natural deodorant.  Now, I haven't made this yet myself and will be on the lookout for more recipes but thought this one was relatively simple, and all natural.  It's worth a try.  I will be posting a few more recipes as I come across them.  Here's one for starters.  Now, someone who tried this said she had red itchy bumps after a few weeks and thought it could be a baking soda allergy.  The nice thing about homemade products is you can adjust and experiment to find a formula that works for you.

For this recipe, you will use:
  • coconut oil
  • baking soda
  • corn starch
  • essential oils (optional). Tea tree, sandalwood, lavender, lemon, and neem oils are good choices. Use one, none, or create your own blend!
  • container
