DIY deodorant. All Day Dry Natural Homemade Deodorant
Girls – this deodorant will change your life! Not kidding. It takes about 5 minutes to make this natural homemade DIY deodorant and it’s worth every second!
Especially if you are doing the Hot Body Sweat Guide, you are going to want to make this IMMEDIATELY! I literally have never smelt better and sweat less. It’s kind of crazy. I mean… I know ‘Good Things Comes to Those Who Sweat’ but I’m definitely okay will staying dry on the regular.
I’ve tried tons of different brands of natural deodorants. They always make me feel sticky-icky and smell too earthy. There’s a fine line between natural and dirty, ya know.
Usually I end up using the Dove 48hr spray deodorant which I like, but I always smell it. It’s clearly having to work hard and I had knowing that those chemicals are soaking into my skin.
With the exception of traveling, I have used the natural homemade deodorant every day for about 2 months now and don’t plan on EVER going back!
The first time I made it I used Ryan’s Star Wars Death Star ice cube mold pahah. It was kind of genius. Once I knew it was a keeper, I upgraded to this cute pink bath bomb mold. It’s great because you can fill it up and have a rounded top to “roll” on the deodorant.
Here’s What You Need:
♥4 Tbsp coconut oil
♥2 Tbsp baking soda
♥2 Tbsp coconut flour (you can also use corn starch or tapioca flour)
♥8-10 drops of your favorite essential oils (I used lavender)
**Mix everything together with a spoon. If using a bath bomb mold, you may need to double the recipe. I recommend keeping it in the mold and storing it in the fridge. Keeping it in the fridge keeps it more solid like a traditional deodorant and it feels amaze when you put it on!
The ingredients kind of sound like one of my protein ball snacks, right? So insane! What essential oils do you think you’ll use? Comment below if you’re gonna try the natural homemade deodorant and tell me your go-to deodorant scent. I’m thinking I might make one with like orange blossom oil for summer!
I can’t wait to try this. Some natural deooderants irritate me so I hope this one doesn’t. Do you just scoop a little out and put it under your arm if you aren’t using it as a roll on?
Yes exactly! 🙂
Thanks for this recipe! I’ve been wanting to make my own and get away from aluminum and weird chemicals for so long. It would be cool to make these to offer with other things I could sell at the famers market :0)
I might do lemon grass or lavender maybe frankincense.
Lemongrass! Such a good idea! If you can reply and let me know what you think of it (if you use it) that would be great!
Mine turned out grainy? Is there any advice for that?
That is normal 🙂 This is why it’s best to keep it in a mold and store in the fridge. You can easily brush off anything extra.
Is the mixture supposed to be like paste?
I just made some yesterday and it works better than any deodorant I’ve ever used! Thank you for sharing this!
What can you use to hold it? Not sure what a bath mold ?
It’s linked for you in the post
Is there a way to reduce the baking soda? It really bothers my skin for some reason, or maybe switch it out for something?
you can try and see how it goes.
I’m definitely going to try it! I think I may use the peace and combing blend from Young living essential oils.
I’m so beyond excited for this! I might do a mixture or lavender and mint! Thanks for the recipe Katie!
That sounds amazing!
I would love to try this but don’t have the time to make it. I know you’ve tried most deodorants out there. Have you tried Native? I’ve heard good things and its aluminium free.
It honestly takes about 2 minutes to make 🙂
I used Orange Sweet essential oil for mine. I’m so excited! I made 1 1/2 of the recipe and it filled the linked mold with a little bit leftover.
PS: I bought some Collagen Peptides from Vital Proteins and I have only mixed it with cold liquids and can always taste it ? Do you only ever mix it with coffee? And isn’t there another flavor that you recommend? Let me know! Thanks!
Oh my gosh orange sounds amazing! That’s so strange you taste it? I mix it with coffee, smoothies and sometimes water and have never noticed much of a taste.. if anything just a little nutty if that makes sense? I also use the whey from them for smoothies.
I put it in a smoothie this time and couldn’t taste it at all! I tried mixing it with juice and it just didn’t mesh well I guess.
Also, the orange blossom deodarant is to DIE FOR. I am actually amazed at how well it works. I’ve never had such success with a natural deodarant!!
Hey Katie, I was wondering if something other than a bath bomb mold would work to hold the deodorant. Thanks so much! Love this recipe 🙂 xoxo
You can also buy actual deodorant stick holders or just use some glassware at home.
hi Katie , I’m going to make this it sounds amazing 😉 just one question does it stain your clothes or leave a greasy mark ? thankyou
Not at all which is why I love it!
Rosemary smells so good with the. Coconut oil
It totally does!
