DIY Recipe: Natural Deodorant for Sensitive Skin with hyperpigmentation

I recently got razor burn under my arms from using a cheap disposable razor. It's safe to say I should switch to home waxing and natural deodorant instead. That razor burn gave me hyperpigmentation under my arms that should take a few months to return to normal. That's why I searched for ways to make my own deodorant for sensitive skin that'll also help even out the tone.

What you'll need:

1 cup Cornstarch

Cocoa butter wafers (I ordered the Wild Cocoa Butter from Amazon and used half the bag)

1 tablespoon of Vitamin E Oil

2 tablespoons Coconut oil

Lavender oil (or any fragrant essential oil of your choice. I got this from my local hair store.)

Deodorant container (I ordered a pack of 5 or so from Amazon)


1. Melt cocoa butter wafers and coconut oil in a pot over medium heat

2. Add Vitamin E oil

3. Start with a cup of cornstarch and keep adding until you get a textured, milky kind of consistency. (It's hard to explain without showing but it won't matter really since the last step is freezing anyways.)

4. Add your essential oil.

5. Pour into your container

6. Put your deodorant container in the freezer for a couple of hours or overnight.

I've been using this recipe for about 2-3 weeks and seen a small amount of progress. When it becomes more noticeable I might show y'all the end result.
