The first time I heard the phrase “homemade deodorant” I’m pretty sure I laughed. And rolled my eyes. And had all sorts of “she’s crazy!!!” thoughts going through my head. I mean, seriously?

The first time I made my own homemade deodorant I’m pretty sure I laughed then, too. But it was more of a “wow, I’m the crazy one now and it’s AWESOME” laugh.
But truthfully, my first experience with homemade deodorant was painful. Like, really painful. I have super sensitive skin and the stuff just burned. For hours.
I was told that some people have this problem and to give it time for my skin to adjust. So like a ninny (ha! who says “ninny”? Apparently I do.) I kept torturing my sad little arm pits with the homemade deodorant from… you know where.

That’s why I’m so excited to share this recipe with you… in case you also have sensitive skin and need a little TLC from your homemade deodorant. It’s still very similar to most of the online recipes you’ll find, and it’s still very effective, but hopefully it won’t make your pits burn. We want happy and non-smelly armpits, right? Right!
