I cured my pompholyx, a disfiguring, itchy and painful skin condition affecting the hands and feet. I HATE having even slightly damp under-arms, but here is something that works: apply a light layer of stick deodorant, then a layer of powder deodorant with a good powder puff. I now use a coconut milk and egg-white based shampoo/conditioner with no chemicals or anything unnatural added in and it works great.
You could also just use lavender by itself in the deodorant if you want to keep it simple. Free and clear detergents: If you find that simply switching your deodorant isn’t fully solving your problem, then you should go a step farther and begin replacing your usual detergents with the more gentle and fragrance-free options out there. This study looked for the first time at deodorant usage in relation to ABCC11 genotype and also in comparison with other factors such as age, background and general household hygiene.
I have found this makes enough to fill up my conventional brand deodorant container, or you could also put it in a small glass container and just use your hand to scoop out a little bit and put it on. If you are using these frequently for homemade deodorant with coconut oil beauty products, I recommend having a separate group of mixing tools to those you use in the kitchen.
I’ve been using this type of home made deodorant for about three years.Â At the start I developed itchy red bumps under my armpits, though didn’t get the peeling you’ve described.Â After much experimenting I found that modifying the dry ingredients to 1 part baking soda to 3 parts arrowroot/cornstarch fixed the problem.
The first time it happened, I just thought perhaps the deodorant was reacting with the dye in the shirt (it was a new work shirt), but then it washed out… and it’s washed out each time. My husband and I get terrible reactions to any deodorant we have tried with baking soda in it, all of which were completely frangrance free and without essential oils. While about 5 per cent of people who produce an odour do not use deodorant , more than a fifth (26 out of 117) of those who don’t produce an odour do not use deodorant, a statistically highly significant difference.
Of course, I bet I spent more than five minutes per stick of antiperspirant cutting and organizing coupons and matching with the best deals, then standing in my pharmacy trying to find the exact version on sale. I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs coconut oil for its superior quality and benefits.
Yea what a ding dong I am…I put in the molds and didn’t add the beeswax, not sure where my brain was that day..anyways I remelted and put beeswax in. Not firm for a bar but firm enough that isn’t runny and can apply with my finger. Share your thoughts and your personal deodorant reviews with us in the comments below.
