How to Make Natural Deodorant Powder


If you're looking for a natural powder deodorant, may I suggest making your own by simply combining baking soda and corn starch.

Old face powder brushes are perfect for powder deodorant application.

You'll Need:

- baking soda
- cornstarch
- essential oils (optional)
- powder brush


Directions:

1. Mix together equal parts baking soda and cornstarch.
2. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils if you'd like and mix it in. Lavender or tea tree essential oils are good choices as they have antibacterial properties that will help kill odor-causing bacteria.
3. Place the mixture into a preferred jar or container.

To Use:

Dip a clean powder brush into the mixture and tap it a little to get rid of excess powder. Apply it directly to your underarms to use as a deodorant. If you're having trouble getting the powder to stay on your skin, wet your fingers with water and lightly pat your underarms so they are slightly damp before application. This will help the powder stay against your skin.

This is a great recipe if you like dry, powder deodorant. If you prefer solid deodorants, find out how to make your own using coconut oil. If liquid spray-on deodorant is more to your liking, all you need is vodka!
