18. DIY Deodorant Stick – Household Products You Can Make at Home
Don’t you wonder about what’s really in your deodorant? After having breast cancer, I’m more concerned about what I put in and on my body.

How to make your own deodorant.
This one involves quite a few more steps and ingredients, but it’s still worth your time and effort. You’ll save money and use less toxic chemicals than with regular store bought deodorant.
You’ll need 1/3 cup coconut oil, 3 tablespoons beeswax, 2 tablespoons shea butter, 1/3 cup arrowroot powder, 2 tablespoons baking soda, 10-15 drops of essential oils.
* Use at own risk. Please read disclaimer on page 1.
