Homemade All Natural Deodorant

 Conventional Deodorant vs. Natural Deodorant

Conventional deodorants contain aluminum which has been linked to breast cancer.  They also contain carcinogenic contaminants that cause damage to the kidney, liver and lungs.

My homemade deodorant is made with all natural healthy ingredients.  It also absorbs wetness and odor.

My recipe: All Natural Vanilla Coconut Deodorant

4 T Coconut oil = 1/4 cup solid coconut oil
1/4 cup Arrowroot powder (preferred) or cornstarch                          
1/4 cup Baking soda
10 drops of Vanilla essential oil (Lavender oil or Chamomile oil can   be substituted or combine them for your favorite scent).  Men try Sandalwood oil for a masculine scent.

Do NOT use tea tree or peppermint oil as they are irritating to the skin.


Place all dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add melted coconut and essential oil and stir. Mixture will be in a semi-liquid state.  Pour into a container with a lid or an empty plastic deodorant container and place in the fridge until solid.

Take out of the fridge and store at room temperature in a dry cabinet to soften. Use approx. 1/8 tsp under each arm.  
Inexpensive and simple!
