15 Amazing coconut oil for skin Recipes

14. Coconut Oil Deodorant with Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter


How To Make Coconut Oil Deodorant

What you will need:

  • 3 tablespoons SHEA BUTTER
  • 3 tablespoons BAKING SODA
  • 2 tablespoons CORN STARCH
  • 2 tablespoons COCOA BUTTER (found mine at Whole Foods)
  • 2 VITAMIN E OIL GEL CAPS (puncture and squeeze out the oil)
  • ESSENTIAL OILS (Amy uses ylang ylang and orange, I used lavender and orange)

Visit The Angry Chicken for all the how-to’s. Amy’s recipe calls for cornstarch—which I did not have—so I used tapioca starch. Mmmhhmm, and no, it did not give me puddin’ pits. I would have used arrowroot starch but I was out of that, too. Oh and heat the mixture on the stove top, NOT in a microwave. Trust me on this one.
