Smell clean!

14 Sep

Hello All!
i am back, trying to sort out what reviews i should do first. i’m a bit of scatterbrain so i’ll try to be organised as much as i can.

Of late, i think i’m having a bad BO. i hate to admit that but i think i needed help. Sometimes, it could be so bad that i smell like a man. i usually don’t stink but recently (really), it was kind of bad and i feel conscious of it. i read up several beauty blogs like vivawoman and ecobeautysecrets and even Pinterest search on “DIY Deodorant” for desperate help. Sesame’s  more on paste constituency while Vivi’s  recipe is more like a dry powder form.

The one that i am going to post here are the standard recipes/formulas which i googled. You can find most of the ingredients in your kitchen.
It is really easy preasy, trust me!

Ingredients:
1 part of cornstarch
1 part of baking soda
coconut oil ( or vegetable glycerin)
a few drops of your favourite essential oil (optional)

Steps:
Pour the powder into a mixing medium and add in coconut oil a little at a time. Stir well
For this, i did not add in essential oil because i want to test how the “scent” will be like if this natural deodorant mixes with my sweat glands. i will be adding on essential oil after a few tries maybe?

i usually don’t give exact measurements because i personally feel its up to personal preference. i used coconut oil just to mix then well into a paste.

These are the ingredients and i use a cute babyfood glass jar to store the deodorant.

i had made a small amount so i pour it into mini jam jar, i’m not sure if this works so i will do a follow up review on it after i’ve cleared this.

This is how the constituency is like.

i had applied them on the affected area and i think it is better for it to be more liquid form for easy application.

Let me know if you have tried any diy recipes for deodorant!
