DIY Deodorant Recipe


  1. Melt all the phase A ingredients down using a double boiler. Stir well until an even consistency/homogeneous.

  2. Once melted, remove from heat. Wait a few minutes and then add your phase B ingredients (you’re waiting to allow the formula to cool slightly since Vitamin E and essential oils are both prone to damage when exposed to high heat)

  3. Pour into your packaging of choice (old sanitized deodorant tubes are great!). Wait 1-2 days before using to allow the product to set.
