Natural Homemade Deodorant Recipe (Stove)
  1. Gas stoves run hot. So set your gas stove no higher than 2.
  2. On an electric stove, warm the double boiler on the lowest setting. Preparing this recipe on an electric stove will take longer. But doing so on the lowest heat setting will help prevent the coconut oil from separating.
If you live in a warm climate, add 2 tablespoons of kokum butter, which is the hardest butter available. It may smell a little waxier, but it helps the mixture to hold its shape in warmer climates. When doing this, add 5 more drops of essential oils to overcome the bees waxy smell of the kokum butter.

Additionally, keep in mind that certain citrus oils are photosensitizing. So, be sure to not to use different EOs or not apply a citrus-based deodorant if sunbathing or when your underarms will be at risk of burning due to full sun exposure.
