Homemade deodorant
 
If you make your own deodorant, what is your favorite recipe? I would really like to try making my own after my cousin gave me a sample of some she made earlier this spring. Thanks!

How stinky are you? I have several friends that use a lemon and have no stink at all. For me I would need to apply it 2x a day to stay stink free all day. One lemon lasts about 10 days-2 weeks. Pretty cheap and def all natural.

I found my recipe off of pinterest and its baking soda, coconut oil, lemon essential oil (though you can use whatever kind you want), and I'm not sure what else. I've only made it once and I didn't have all the ingredients (one was alum?) Anyway, just that combo worked great for me! Never smelly and went more than 24 hours!

I use coco oil, cornstarch and baking soda, but I think I need to use less baking spas cause I have a rash.....it works though!

Ok, I am a natural deodorant newbie, and this may be a dumb question....but, how do you apply the coconut oil mixture??
