Vegan Deodorant Balm
2 tablespoons baking soda
2 tablespoons of corn starch (arrowroot or tapioca flour works well too)
4 tablespoon of coconut oil - liquid
*8 drops of lime essential oil (or your fav scent)
*4 drops of tea tree oil
Mix the melted coconut oil, baking soda & corn starch into a smooth paste.
Add essential oils if you are using
Pour into your favourite small jar.
This has a shelf life of approx one year, dependent of storage & use conditions.
* Essential oils must be used with caution especially if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a medical practitioner prior to use.
This makes about 100 mls of Deodorant which can last me up to 3-4 months, depending on use.
It should form a silky paste that drys & disappears when you pop it on.
It will be solid or liquid depending on the temperature outside so if you prefer it firm pop it in the fridge.
NOTE:If you have any discomfort using please discontinue
