Homemade Deodorant Recipe With Coconut Oil Ingredients



Mix baking soda and corn starch together and keep it aside.
Take melted coconut oil in a bowl. Melted here means it should be in liquid form since it might be frozen in winter. You can easily melt the frozen coconut oil in liquid form by dipping its bottle into hot water mug for a minute or so.
Now add the cornstarch and baking soda mixture to the liquid coconut oil and stir out nicely to form a smooth consistency. The paste should be nicely smooth. If you find it difficult to blend, you can put it on stove for a minute and then stir it. I like to be little solid so that I can carry it easily while travelling. If you wish the deo consistency to be little creamy you can add more coconut oil.
