Homemade natural deodorant

Making homemade natural deodorant

Maintaining a good diet and drinking enough water can really cut down the body odour, but sometimes you need a bit more help. Conventional deodorant antiperspirants work, but they’re full of chemicals and additives.

There are a lot of natural deodorants out there, but the pickings are rather slim and they’re not all effective. So this article shows how you can make your very own natural deodorants – it takes more time than picking one up from the shop, but it lasts a lot longer and is much healthier.

Here are two homemade natural deodorant recipes which work really well.

Shea butter homemade natural deodorant


  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp shea butter
  • 2 tbsp (optional) arrowroot or organic cornstarch
  • Essential oils (optional)


  1. Combine in a small glass jar with a lid and place this in a small saucepan of water until melted. This can also be done in the microwave instead.
  2. Remove from the heat and add baking soda and arrowroot. Mix well.
  3. Add the essential oils and let it cool for several hours (it doesn’t need to be put in the fridge).
Coconut oil homemade natural deodorant


  • 6 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp arrowroot or organic cornstarch
  • Essential oils (optional)


  1. Mix the baking soda and arrowroot together in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Mash in coconut oil with a fork until well mixed.
  3. Add essential oils.
  4. Store in a small glass jar.

I urge you to try making your own deodorant. Wouldn’t you feel better knowing that you weren’t putting anything on your skin that you couldn’t consume? If you do try it, let me know your outcome.

Till next time,
