Makes about four 1 oz (30 ml) deodorant tubes.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz (28 gm) Beeswax
  • 3 oz (90 ml) Jojoba
  • 20 drops Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
  • 20 drops Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi)

Tools

  • Kitchen scale
  • Pyrex-style large measuring bowl
  • Medium stove top pot
  • Glass stirring rod or spoon
  • Four 1 oz deodorant tubes

Directions: Use the "Stove Top Melting Method" to liquify and combine the base carriers.

  1. Place the Pyrex measuring cup in the soup pot, and fill the pot 1/4 of the way with water. Boil water, add beeswax and jojoba to Pyrex, and allow to melt.
  2. After removing the melted wax from heat, add the essential oils and stir.
  3. Immediately pour the liquid into the deodorant tubes and cover.
  4. Allow deodorant to solidify for at least five minutes before applying.

Alternate Essential Oil Blends for Different Aromas

Note: These blends are less concentrated, but you can double the essential oil drops if you want them more concentrated.

For a woodsy and citrus aroma:

  • 10 drops Cypress essential oil
  • 10 drops distilled Lime essential oil

For a floral and citrus aroma:

  • 10 drops Geranium essential oil
  • 10 drops Orange essential oils
