I call this deodorant but it’s really my go to powder for so many things. I use it as dry shampoo. I use it as a shoe deodorizer. I use it on my dogs in between baths (and I sprinkle it on their beds in between washes). And the best part – it costs like $2 for a tub of deodorant powder that lasts a long time.
One of the more…interesting parts of switching to natural deodorant is, ahem, the application process. Going from a stick where application took all f 3 seconds to a powder where the applicator is now my hands – it took some getting used to. I still have a stick deodorant for travel and on the go, but when I’m home, I use the powder. And once I got over the whole, “wait I use my hands?” part, this recipe (is it a recipe if it’s just 3 ingredients and there’s no cooking?) became my favorite go to for natural deodorant.
1 cup baking soda
1/3 cup arrowroot powder (optional)
20 drops of your favorite essential oil (Add more or less depending on your preference. I used lavender )
Add all the ingredients to a jar or container and shake vigorously. Use as needed.
