Homemade Bath/Deodorant Powder
This is great stuff! Use after shower or bath. This is made as a deodorant. I don't like using commercial products that have aluminum. I don't believe that is healthy for anyone. It has become so hard to find deodorant without it. So I made my own product!
Ingredients are very simple--just 3!
One box of corn starch
1 Cup of soda
1.25 ounces of cinnamon
That is it!
Cornstarch is to help with absorption, soda for odor control,
cinnamon is a natural deodorizer.
Mix all ingredients in bowl.
If you have an old powder box with a powder puff that would be great! But I haven't seen one of those in years. What I did is saved a couple of powder shaker containers. I had to remove the lids with a flat head screw driver. If you need to do this be very careful not to let it slip and stab yourself.
Here I started to fill the containers using a funnel.
But what really worked best was making a funnel with a clean sheet of paper and cutting a hole just large enough to go inside the opening of the shaker bottle. That worked really well. You can see above it makes a nice light tan color. And OH it smells so good!!
This recipe makes one and 1/2 shaker containers!!
And there you have it!! Some great homemade powdered deodorant!
Do I dare say this? ;-/ It makes a great gift for all your 'stinky' friends!! (And 'stinky' relatives too!!)
Good Morning! This morning I had another thought about putting this powder in containers. Use a glass jar with the lid--probably a couple of narrow jar such as olives come in. Punch a few holes in the center of the lid. You don't want too many holes, but a few in the center. Voila! But be very careful not to drop this in the tub or shower!
