The best deodorant you will ever use
Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.
Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome
This is what I’ve been using for about a year now and it works wonders.
Not convinced it works? My fiance is literally the smelliest human being I’ve ever met when he’s been sweating all day. I made him some with tea tree oil and he now smells nice and mint-ish as the end of the day, even if he’s been outside working.
Not to mention it’s cheaper, smells better, better for you AND better for the environment to make your own :D
Months later and I’m still using this recipe. HUGELY recommend. I couldn’t find cocoa butter the first time around so used lotion (“cocoa butter” lotion but, yk, the kind that probably contains .000001% cocoa butter), which worked just fine but looked different. Having finally now acquired actual cocoa butter, it looks just like the image, which made it easier to figure out ideal consistency.
It’s HELLA effective—once I put it on, went to work, came home, drove several hours, slept, then went on a few hours’ morning walk (on a warm day), and when I got back I was juuuuust starting to smell like I might possibly have human sweat glands. Seriously. Verified by my mother, who would be horrified if I smelled bad in public in her city.
I do recommend keeping your container covered between uses so it doesn’t dry out and start to crumble, but if it does you can just add a little more coconut oil. You can get coconut oil at Trader Joe’s, if you have those, or at fancy grocery stores, or online. Probably lots of things could substitute in for it, too.
