Homemade Natural Deodorant Cream/ Prirodni dezodorans u kremi iz kućne radinosti

Today I have something a bit different for you. It is still a recipe, but instead of food, I’m stepping outside of my comfort zone into the area of natural cosmetics. I don’t really have any strong convictions when it comes to beauty, but still try to go with natural products where I can and when it is convenient and financially reasonable.

One of the ongoing woes I seemed to have, though, was with natural deodorants. I’ve tried a ton of those and usually they worked pretty wonky or didn’t work at all. I never really found that magical product that I would love and would swear by. Up until now, that is. Which, coincidentally, is homemade, super easy, super cheap and totally customizable.

INGREDIENTS:

3 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp baking soda

2 tbsp corn starch

A few drops of essential oil of your choice

METHOD:

Melt coconut oil and stir well with rest of the ingredients. Transfer into a small jar and refrigerate for a few hours to set. Use sparingly, like a cream. You’ll only need a little bit, so this amount will go a long way. I infused mine with lemongrass essential oil and love the refreshing smell of it, but use whichever scent you prefer here. I’m planning on mixing the next batch with finely ground dried rosemary or lavender. Please note that the deodorant in the pictures came straight out of fridge. It loosened up more on room temperature and currently has a consistency of thicker cream.

Danas imam za vas nešto malo drugačije. Još uvijek je to recept, ali umjesto hrane, iskoračila sam malo iz svoje sigurne zone u bespuća prirodne kozmetike. Osobno nemam neka čvrsta uvjerenja kada su u pitanju ljepota i njega. Trudim se koristiti prirodne proizvode tamo gdje mogu i gdje je to financijski razumno.

Međutim, jedna od konstantnih boljki koju imam tiče se prirodnih dezodorana. Isprobala sam ih gomilu, ali većina ih jedva da funkcionira, ili ne funkcionira uopće. Nikada nisam našla onaj čarobni proizvod koji bi bio baš po mojoj mjeri. Sve do sada. A taj sam proizvod smutila doma u svega par sekundi, za samo koju kunu i mogu ga dalje modificirati po volji.

SASTOJCI:

3 žlice kokosovog ulja

2 žlice sode bikarbone

2 žlice kukuruznog škroba

Par kapi eteričnog ulja po želji

PRIPREMA:

Rastopite kokosovo ulje i dobro promiješajte sa ostalim sastojcima. Preselite u malu posudicu i stavite u hladnjak na par sati da se stisne. Koristite u tankom sloju, kao kremu. Trebati će vam samo tanki premaz ovog dezodorana, tako da će vam količina iz recepta potrajati neko vrijeme. Ja sam u svoj ubacila eterično ulje limunske trave i super mi je miris, ali slobodno dodajte ono što se vama najviše sviđa. Moj je plan iduću turu smiješati sa fino mljevenim sušenim ružmarinom ili lavandom. Jedino imajte na umu kako je dezić na slici bio netom iz hladnjaka. Kasnije se malo opustio na sobnoj temeperaturi i trenutno ima konzistenciju gušće kreme.
