Body odour is something that every single person experiences in their lives. No matter what the season, body odour just happens. So, here's how you can make a homemade deodorant to get rid of the body odour for good.
Homemade deodorants are specifically made for people who don't really like the idea of using an entire cocktail of chemicals on themselves. Some people are born with super-sensitive skin; and store-bought and branded deodorants just may not suit their skin.
So, that is when you turn to a DIY homemade deodorant. These are fun to make too, so you can make a hobby out of it. These also make really fun and nifty gifts for you to give, which is a really good thing with the festive season coming up.
Plus, most of the ingredients used in this can be used for multiple other beauty purposes and have a lot of uses. For example, beeswax can be used to make lip balms, and of course there is no count of how many uses there are for coconut oil!
So, here's how you can make your very own homemade deodorant to get rid of body odour.
1. Step 1:
Take half a cup of coconut oil, 3-4 tablespoons of beeswax and melt them together. Mix them well together.
2. Step 2:
Add some shea or cocoa butter to this mix. Melt all the ingredients together and mix them up in any pan.
Once they are fully melted and mixed together, add some baking soda and some arrowroot powder to the mix. Keep the baking soda limited to 1 tablespoon if you have sensitive skin. Otherwise, two tablespoons are enough.
Now, for the fragrance to make this homemade DIY deodorant smell even more heavenly, add any essential oil of your choice. You have options like rose, lavender, lemon, orange and a whole lot of others.
5. Step 5:
Finally, to get your very own homemade deodorant for body odour, store the mix in any container which you would find convenient to use. You can even store it in an old deodorant stick container.
