But making your own deodorant does require a Degree of ingenuity:
¼ cup corn starch
¼ cup baking soda
1-2 tbsp coconut oil
Mix the dry ingredients first and slowly add the coconut oil mixing with your hands. The coconut oil is the bonding agent and you do not need too much to make the deodorant the same consistency as store bought.
This presumes, of course, that you’ve used up a container of the store-bought stuff and kept the empty for just such an occasion; you then fill it up with this not-exactly-goop, and you’ve done the trick for rather a lot less than $2.49.
