Homemade antiperspirants:

Baking Powder and Cornstarch

Take a bowl and add baking soda, coconut oil and corn starch. Blend it well until it becomes smooth. If the mixture appears thin, then add more baking soda into it. Do not add corn starch much, as it will irritate your skin. Add some drops of scent oils. For males, you can add cypress oil that helps in reducing sweat and for women, bergamot or lavender can be added, as it gives out soft floral scent. Take an empty container and scoop the paste into it before it cools too much. Then, store it in a cool place and it is ready to use.
