I worry about the health complications of Deodorants containing Aluminum.

So I went on Amazon and bought two or three all natural deodorants. The best of them all is one called Funkless Unscented, it's really worked well for me. Comes in a little glass tub and you apply the paste with fingers. I swear it may even have anti perspirant properties because Unless conditions are extreme heat, I don't sweat. I've used it for around 6 months and it's remained effective. It really gets rid of the "Funk" in the nether regions too! (I'm Male)

I was thinking how expensive it was $12.00 for 2.1 Oz and figured why not try to duplicate the recipe. By the way it's going to cost around $30.00 - $40.00 to duplicate the recipe depending on how many of the ingredients that you have on hand, The cost of a batch of 20oz is around $12.00 less if you buy in bulk. Why not go to Amazon and try Funkless. If you like it come back here and use the recipe. www.amazon.com/Funkless-Natural-Deodoran...id=1534908171&sr=8-4


I chose to make it without any fragrances so it will be hypoallergenic. BTW Magnesium is good for you and most people don't get enough.

Any way the ingredients off the label were

Arrow Root, Baking Soda, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Magnesium Oxide and Vitamin E

I found a this recipe on the internet and compensated and came up with my own recipe. It's very close to the original.
www.thehealthymaven.com/2015/07/diy-natu...-actually-works.html

All the ingredients were easily found on Amazon. Any Arrow Root should be fine. For the Shea Butter I used Okay Brand. For the Magnesium Oxide Now Foods sells in powdered form. Any baking soda and Coconut Oil is fine. I had access to pure Powdered Vit E 1210 but I'm sure that any kind of Vitamin E should be fine. It's very small part of Recipe.

In a double boiler. (Glass Jar in a pot of boiling water).

Melted 2 1/2 T of Shea ButterAlong with 2 1/2 T of Coconut Oil.

Mixed in:

1/4 Cup of Arrowroot Powder

1 T of Baking soda

1 T of Magnesium Oxide (Not Hydroxide)

1/2 Tsp Of Pure Vitamin E 1210 IU powdered but I'm sure that any Vitamin E should be fine.

After everything is blended just put in the refrigerator for4 hours and the ArrowRoot thickens it.

After the first batch came out perfect I just multiplied the recipe above by 4.

I put it into a empty Funkless Brand glass tub.

For Approximately $12-$15.00 I produced about 20 Oz of this. if I was buying in larger Qty probably would have cost way less per Ounce. Used up all the arrowroot and all the Shea Butter but had plenty left over of the other ingredients. If I bought from Funkless this would have been around $120.00 worth.

3 Days afterwards:

My home made is excellent I forgot that my first batch I cut the Coconut oil in 1/2. The second batch with the right amount of coconut oil and whisked in a bowl has the right consistency.

BTW some of the ingredients are a little hard to find.

Bought at Amazon

The three that are hard to find are

Arrow Root www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H898MUG/ref...01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Zinc Oxide

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0010B8CBW/ref...01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Shea Butter

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0078CFYWM/ref...01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Everything else is generic

The vitamin E I used powdered pure from work. But any High potency Vit E should be fine.

I like this one, You'll have plenty left though. It's a minor part of the formula

www.amazon.com/Beauty-Moisturizes-Antiox...=Vitamin+e+oil&psc=1

The rest of the ingredients were just laying around and are generic.

You might want to consider selling that on Botanical store shelves! Gina at Inland Botanicals makes their line of skin care products with all natural, safe, organic ingredients. Might really be perfect for the retail store they are about to open.

Tea Time Botanicals ALSO has a similar product line in the works. I’m sure there are others.

Just some fun thoughts...thanks for sharing! Great thinking to post that here! Very generous of you to share your mishaps also!

Saves a step right there! Haha

Sounds great kratering!!

My lady uses an expensive but natural product the Israeli army uses ... they use it because after having a few days of applying it to armpits you can go days without using it and it works really well, super expensive,

I’m interested in your recipe, thx man

I've been using it for over a year and it never stopped working. Began making it myself 7 months ago.

It is 1000% anti smell.

They say aluminum is bad for you and Magnesium is good for you˙. So healthwise it's a win. But most important is that it totally eliminates body odors.

Economical too.
