Natural Homemade Deoderant

Brilliant post by Tracy taken from here very own blog The Red Spotty Mushroom where you will find lots of fantastic posts!

Over at Cavern of Craftiness blog Sammy challenged a few of us to try home made beauty recipes.

I opted to try (ok well I opted Daddy Critter to try) deodorant  hair treatment & foot treatment for cracked heels.

First deodorant. I mixed equal parts of cornflour & baking powder. I gradually added coconut oil till it went to a smooth paste.

The coconut oil comes solid so will have to melt a little. I just popped it in a cup in a bowl of hot water.

Its hard to describe the texture but will be almost like a dry paste that’s very matt & smooth looking.

Daddy Critter rides a bike a lot (pedal kind)  & tested this over 2 days. He favours the use of natural products & has reported them to be a little useless unless reapplied numerous times which isn’t always that easy.

You can put this in an old wind up deodorant ‘case’ for ease of use which means great recycling opportunity.

His verdict of this? worked fab!! Lot less sweat & smells & feel so much nicer. We added couple drops of tea tree oil & he much preferred the smell as a lot of natural are scentless or very mild.
