DIY deodorant

Tired of searching for pure, chemical-free deodorant that doesn’t cost a fortune? Yeah, me too! Here’s a mega simple DIY deodorant recipe using ingredients that you probably already have at home!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot powder (or corn starch)
  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 5 drops of your favorite essential oil (lavender works well for this recipe)
  • An empty container or jar

Mix your dry ingredients together. Then add in the coconut oil (melted) and essential oil. Mix everything until it becomes a nice pasty paste. Scoop it up into your empty container or jar, and badda bing, badda boom! Vegan, cruelty-free, and aluminum-free deodorant! Yahooooooo! Enjoy!

    Hi what Baking Soda do you use? I rather not use arm and hammer, they test on Animals

  2. Laura says:

    I made this today using your recipe and it’s a little runny. Will it solidify or should I add more baking soda or arrow root? Thanks!

  3. Tara says:

    How do you apply it, Sunny?

  4. Dana says:

    Hi Sunny, I made this with just the baking soda, cornstarch, and coconut oil. I think it turned out ok, it’s a little crumbly though. Otherwise it keeps me fresh! I stored it in a glass jar — Do I need to refrigerate it?

    you can use cocoa butter or Shea butter. but you would half too melt it first.

    Hi! Are there any substitutes for coconut oil?

    just want to let anyone out there who’s interested in how this works that i made it and it works great! and i totally put it to the test–pilates class, 5.5 mile bike ridein the heat, AND physical labor chipping up tile adhesive but i still smelled fresh!
