DIY Natural Deodorant - diatomaceous earth vs baking soda

You want me to put my fingers where? Making your own natural deodorant is easier than I thought. I tried two different recipes, one with diatomaceous earth and one with bakings soda. Diatomaceous earth is less harsh than baking soda, and I found that to be true as I tried both for a week. While I like the diatomaceous earth recipe better, the baking soda worked better. Maybe if I try again and add more goo it will work?

Here are the recipes:
Baking Soda Version
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon coconut oil
10 to 15 drops of essential oil

Diatomaceous Earth Version
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon diatomaceous earth
1 tablespoon coconut oil
10 to 15 drops of essential oil

Do you see the similarities? It was the same recipe but switching out baking soda for diatomaceous earth. I really liked the diatomaceous earth version because I got less irritated, and am trying it again this week. There are things I can try, like shaving my pits or exfoliating to help decrease stinkiness. If you want me to try the spray deodorizer for pits, let me know in the comments. 

Do you want some essential oils? Head over to Tara's site and tell her I sent ya!
