How to Make Your Own Natural Deodorant

More and more people are making the switch from antiperspirants and conventional deodorant to natural deodorant. The concern over what ingredients are in personal care products has grown to be just as important as the ingredients in food products.

One way to have more control over what ingredients you are exposing yourself to is by making your own natural deodorant. You can make a natural deodorant with ingredients that you can find in your kitchen.

Here is an easy DIY Natural Deodorant Recipe.

What you will need:
  • 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot Powder or Cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 15-20 Drops Essential Oil

  1. Start by mixing the arrowroot powder/cornstarch with the baking soda in a bowl.
  2. Warm the coconut oil up so it is a liquid. It’s easy to do this by putting the coconut oil in a glass jar and sticking it in a pot filled with water on the stove, like a double boiler.
  3. Once the coconut oil has melted, pour it into the arrowroot powder/cornstarch mixture.
  4. Add several drops of your favorite essential oil. Scent it based on your personal preference.
  5. Take the mixture and put it in a glass jar or reuse an old deodorant container.
  6. Make sure the deodorant fully cools before using it.
*Note: This deodorant will change consistency a bit based on the temperature of where it’s being stored.
