    Thanks for sharing, I will try this recipe! Except for one ingredient that worries me: tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is known to affect oestrogen activity, and round 60% of breast cancers are receptor positive which means their growth can be stimulated by oestrogen! Now, as this hormone is already naturally made inside the breast anyway, I wonder how much it increases you chances of a developing cancer.. But taking the risk still scares me!

    One way to save on the amount of coconut oil used could be to melt it a little on the stove or in the microwave so it mixes easier. then it probably would be easier to place in a deodorant container and set out to solidify or solidify in the refrigerator.

    Wow. Thanks! I have a question. These are deordarants. What about adding in a anti perpersperant? Or , is that not possible.

  • PassionateHomemaking

    @lakeseminole No, there is not a natural way that I am aware of to stop the sweating. Sweating is a natural necessary body process that is necessary to help detox your body. If you try to stop the process it can cause serious buildup in your body. Anti-perspirants are not healthy for you. I do notice though that I have significantly cut back on the amount of sweat by using this recipe.

    @mesweetNheart Yes, but it will change the texture and effectiveness. You will have to use more of the other ingredients to make it the right texture and therefore will through off the proportions.

    @PassionateHomemaking You’re so right! i tried my method and now i have to store my deodorant in the fridge at all times!!!! its such a headache! 😮

    I personally prefer a naturally fresh deodorant you can buy on the stores 🙂

    @PassionateHomemaking Peppermint oil is a natural mild anti perspirant, it effects the capillary beds in the skin, making them dialate ( thats what gives it that cooling feeling) in doing so, tricks the body into thinking that area is cooler and doesn’t need to produce as much sweat, but it is only mildly so, and will disipate over time as its worn. It is an old nursing trick, to add it to bath water, to sooth and cool a hot cranky pt. so they can rest easier 🙂

    Can you use something apart from coconut oil? Something with less scent perhaps? It’s hard to get where I live in Aus.

    BTW I reckon you could use an applicator if you didn’t want to touch it without your hands. A short brissled brush or even an ice-cream stick.
