      I am going to try this. I also saw in Target yesterday they have the deodorant containers for $1 in the travel section.

      FYI: You should NOT use TEA TREE OR LAVENDER oil under your arms. Research the properties essential oils FIRST. Great video!

      I guess I can go ahead and post the reasons we should not use tea tree or lavender essential oils for our natural deodorants. The two aforementioned essential oils MAY cause estrogen positive breast cancer. Try lemongrass or bergamont instead. Resrarch the eseentials FIRST before using…happy creating!

      @akiss84 I’d suggest adding a few drops of Dr. Bronners Peppermint Oil. My teen and tween wear it and I have not noticed that they have had excessive perspiring. My youngest used too.

      @shelties100998 Me too! Thanks for the tip on Vitamin E!!!! I’ll be researching this and making a new video. You rock!

      Thank you for this! I have been desperate for a decent deodorant. I have extremely sensitive and allergic skin, so I am very picky about what goes on it, especially on the delicate areas like face and underarms. I kept getting rashes or worse from natural brands. I tried this, and it’s great! I am a sweater, and this helps with that (although sweating is GOOD for you!) and it stays fresh all day. Very simple, very easy, although I recommend softening the coconut oil a bit so it’s easier to mix.

      Have u tried softening the coconut oil in the microwave or a double boiler first before mixing? It makes it easier to work with, then just pop the container(s) in the fridge for a couple hours, and they will be smoother and completely solid for you and the other ladies of the house :) And if you are looking for a really healthful tea, try a Hibiscus tea, it controls cholesterol and blood pressure, it changes color on you so don’t be suprised when it goes from deep purple to burgandy when u stir

      @webbergail4 YEA!!!! I like it too and I do perspire, yet I don’t mind. It IS good for you. LOL!

      @SPARKWISDOM you are very welcome, I get my tea from Darlene’s Tea Port ( name of her Ebay store) her Ebay name is theteaport, or directly from her website Chelmsfordtea(dot)com. Her prices are reasonable (especially on Ebay when she post the tea as an auction), her selection is phenominal, and free shipping on orders over $50. Her teas are always fresh and flavorful. My husband dosen’t usually like tea, he loves several of the blends she offers.

      Thanks for this recipe. I look forward to making this. I have a couple of questions: Since coconut oil liquifies at ~75 degrees. …
      1. Do you keep your homemade deo stick in the fridge?
      2. Does the deodorant stick melt down in hot temperatures? I mean would you trust travelling somewhere hot with it in your bag?

      I love coconut oil. I actually use it alone as my all over moisturizer or mixed with shea … it’s so easily absorbed. So many benefits for the hair & skin!

      Fantastic video, i also had that problem other deodorants itch, and i love this natural deoderant, thank u for sharing it with us…

    • SPARKWISDOM

      @kdw4jc Yes, keep it in the fridge. When traveling put it in a baggie or it will melt! Thanks for watching. I put it on my skin every night :)

      I just made this except in way smaller proportions (teaspoon of each) It wasn’t very powdery so I added more of each, but to be honest it still seemed too creamy. It’s like 100 degrees out here and our air isn’t super great so I put it in the fridge… I put it an an old Burt’s Bee jar (there was a powder clay mask in there). Should it be more powdery or creamy?

    • ForViewingOnly

      Such a great video! Thank you. Thinking about the mixing process, would you be able to warm the coconut oil (maybe in a saucepan on a low heat) so that it becomes a bit more runny and easier to mix?
