DIY Deodorant – Shea Butter

Hea butter Natural Skin Lotion – Naturally Rich in Vitamins A & E

You know I love using shea butter in my body butter recipes for skin health & many of you asked what brand of raw shea butter that I recommend & honestly I do love several brands but this one by Beauty by She is on the top of my list, it comes sealed in an easy open & close zipper pouch & is a nice amount for using in multiple DIY recipes at 16oz. As I have said before when it comes to getting the skin, hair & nail benefits from Shea butter you want raw, unrefined & organic & this brand delivers.vw

I really do love this shea butter. I have used it straight & in my DIY body butters, DIY deodorants & DIY beauty products & I am so happy to trust & recommend it.

To me shea butter has a great smell, color & texture. So amazing for skin health & look. Leaves skin feeling amazingly soft & it lasts, not just temporary.

Great for everything from chapped lips to rashes. I have sensitive skin & shea butter is amazing.

If you have skin issue raw shea butter is the way to go & is very healing, it is also anti aging & reverses damage. I love using shea butter on my feet & elbows but my favorite uses are my homemade body butters where I can have it mixed the way I want to for use on my whole body, my teen daughters are loving it in their favorite diy deodorant recipes (recipe below).

The heat of your hands melts it enough to rub it into your skin as it absorbs in fast doing its job.

DIY Shea Butter Deodorant:

Some prefer to use less baking soda & use more corn starch or vise verse, so feel free to change it around as needed for you, you can also use potato starch instead of corn starch, you can leave out the baking soda or corn starch & just use 5 tbsp of either. You can use more or less of the coconut oil & shea butter to get the desired consistency you are looking for.

Add the shea butter & coconut oil to a glass measuring cup or mason jar & sit it into very warm water, let it sit till slightly melted soft enough to mix, it might take heating the water back up a bit. Add the rest of your ingredients & stir well & pour into a container to allow to harden. I prefer to use a small jar with a lid & store the deodorant right in the container I mixed with. Make the consistency you prefer.

Options to add: Essential oils of choice, 15 drops lemon juice, 15 drops of colloidal silver, (if you add liquid you may need to add more baking soda/corn starch) You can subtitle 1 tbsp of clay powder for part of the baking soda. You can add 1/2 tsp of activated charcoal just remember it is very black & will go on black.

Other great uses for She Butter: 

  • Shaving cream
  • wounds
  • chapped skin & lips
  • Muscle cream (adding essential oils)
  • Relief from rashes
  • Burns
  • Hair conditioner/Pre-conditioner/Hot oil treatment
  • In DIY body recipes
  • Healthy, skin, hair, scalp & nails
