Most deodorants that have the effect of stopping or reducing sweating contain aluminum and other ingredients that cause skin irritation and dryness. Not only can these deodorants cause skin irritations, they also do absolutely nothing to nourish, hydrate, and improve the skin's texture.

All this your skin can only get if you give it a natural product with natural ingredients that reduce sweating and at the same time nourish the skin, making it soft, smooth and supple.

We offer a wonderful recipe for homemade deodorant with shea butter that reduces perspiration, leaves an amazing smell and nourishes the skin at the same time.

Here is the recipe:

  • 2 and ½ cups coconut oil;
  • 2 and ½ cups of shea butter;
  • ¼ cup cornstarch;
  • 1 and ½ tablespoons of soda;
  • 6 drops lavender oil;
  • 6 drops of grapefruit oil;
  • 1 drop of tea tree oil.

Preparation method:

Put the coconut oil and shea butter in a glass jar. Place the jar in a bowl of water on the stove to make a water bath.

Bring the water to a boil over medium to low heat.

Once the water boils, start stirring the two oils until they melt completely.

Add the cornstarch, baking soda, and essential oils.

Stir very well. Transfer the mixture to a suitable container or leave it in this depending on whether it is convenient for you to use.

Allow the deodorant to cool completely. Store it with a tightly closed lid.

How to use?

Using a spoon or spatula, apply a small amount of the mixture to the underarms, spreading lightly with fingers to spread it well.

If you don't sweat much during the day, one application in the morning should be enough. If you sweat more, you can apply an extra amount during the day.

The skin becomes soft, nourished and elastic with regular use of this deodorant.
