Homemade Deodorant Recipe

We are transitioning to more and more natural products. It feels so good to add this Homemade Deodorant Recipe to the list of items we are making at home. It’s been a gradual process and we have loved everything we have made.

We recently learned how to make Clarifying Shampoo  and how to make All Natural Cocoa Lip Balm. It feels so good to add another all natural product to my list of things our family is using now.

Not only do I feel better knowing exactly what my family is using but we are also saving money! It’s a win all around. If you have read the ingredients lately on deodorant or other products you use daily, it’s overwhelming.

Some of those words you can’t even pronounce. I have such peace of mind knowing my family is using all natural products. No worries about harsh chemicals!

It’s so much cheaper to make your own natural products instead of buying them. I love being able to control exactly what goes into each and every product we make.

My goal is to make nearly everything at home. I have a list of things I want to try and I tackle a new product as I have time. The Honey Body Wash was a hit all around!

I have yet to make anything that was a flop. So far everything has been really simple to make, cost effective and all family members have been pleased.

How to make homemade deodorant?

This was SUPER EASY to make! I used an old solid deodorant container and it worked out really well. However, you can also buy empty containers on Amazon.

They come in all shapes and sizes depending on what you like. They also have some sets that come with labels and such. So handy! I like buying a set because we are always making something.

When it’s time to make more, I can just grab one of the containers and get started. It saves time and money by keeping these on hand.

When you use this deodorant it feels “wet.” It’s not wet in the tube but since it’s coconut oil your body temperature heats it up very quickly and when you put it under your arms, it’s initially wet.

It dries very quickly. So I’d put it on, let it dry and then get dressed. Otherwise you may risk it getting on your clothing. It sort of reminds me of the roll on deodorant that applies wet and then dries.

For essential oil recommendations I’d go with an anti fungal essential oil such as tea tree oil. You could also try something like lavender essential oil which is skin soothing. Essential oils have so many wonderful uses.

We are learning more every day and using more and more of these oils. You can find 6 Amazing Essential Oil Blends for Allergies and even Essential Oils for Hair Growth!

It’s amazing all these little essential oils can do!

It’s so simple to make this Coconut Oil Deodorant!

You are going to love how quick and easy this. You will have all natural deodorant in no time at all! I wondered at first if it might be more trouble than it was worth!

However, it truly was incredibly simple. It looks like “real” deodorant and works great too.

Why is arrowroot powder used in deodorant?

Arrowroot powder helps to absorb moisture. This is the ingredient that helps to keep you dry. Don’t leave this out. 🙂

What can you use as a substitute for deodorant?

You can substitute baking soda or corn starch for deodorant.  Many people use one or the other or mix them together. You can certainly try this but I find it easier to use in a traditional stick deodorant.

It’s not as messy and goes on better I think. Of course, do what works for you!

Once you learn how to make deodorant, you will make it all the time!

Our family is saving so much money by making this all natural deodorant. It’s amazing how much you can make for very little money! The savings really add up.

It seems with each new product we incorporate into our daily routine, we also add more savings. It’s awesome to not only be able to give your family something natural to use but save money at the same time!

    Love the deodorant. You’re right about letting it dry before getting dressed. The only thing to mention is since it’s mostly made with oils, it gets very soft at room temperature. I find it still has to be stored in the refrigerator. So traveling in a suitcase is not a good idea.

    1. carrie says:

      Yes, if it’s warm outside mine does that as well. I recommend trying to add 2 tablespoon of beeswax to help it stay in the solid form. Thank you!

      1. Leslie says:

        Can u use soy wax instead of bees wax?

  2. Susan says:

    I love the smell and ease of making it. Any suggestions on how to keep it from melting. I’ve kept in the fridge and have been applying it in the kitchen every morning. I’d like to apply it in bedroom but it’s too runny. Beeswax, Maybe? I’d love your feedback. Btw, it works as well as any deodorant I’ve used.

    1. carrie says:

      Yes, I think adding 2 tablespoons of beeswax would help it stay in the solid form.

  3. VW says:

    Carrie,
    I am blown away! I have noticed that after turning a ‘mature’ age, stink has become a larger problem. in the past I used just an essential oil with a carrier oil. But after I made it last night, I used this for the first time today right before I worked out. I wanted to give it the ultimate test. I didn’t smell ANYTHING! Again – blown away! I am a definite convert! I’ll just keep mine in the frig since I can’t use beeswax. Thank you so much!!

    1. carrie says:

      Great to hear – thanks for sharing!

    2. Joann says:

      Do you have the other recipes? So we can try them.

      1. Joann Kronstadt says:

        I really would like to try this. Maybe next month I can get the things to try.

        1. carrie says:

          Let us know what you think of the recipe when you try it out!

  4. Maudlyn says:

    Add bees wax to your formula and you will not have to keep it in the refrigerator. Beeswax solidifies and holds the ingredients together. You may ask me why, because I make my own deodorant.

  5. Kassandra says:

    How long do you need to dry it so it doesn’t leave oil stains on your clothes?

    1. Veronica says:

      I’m curious if my sweat will become oily and ruin my clothes. I live in AZ, so sweat is going to happen.

      1. carrie says:

        I haven’t had any issues with that. Your skin will slowly absorb the oil in the deodorant. Thanks.

  6. animal crossing says:

    This is truly a great and easy recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

  7. Jessica says:

    How many ‘sticks’ of deodorant does this recipe make? I understand that it’ll depend on the different sizes of the sticks but was just wondering in general how many sticks does the recipe make.

    1. carrie says:

      I use the larger standard size deodorant containers and this recipe generally fills one of those. Thanks.

  8. Suzanne Waltrip says:

    just plain coconut oil?

    1. carrie says:

      Yes, I used regular coconut oil for this recipe.

  9. Marrissa says:

    How long does does the deodorant stay good for? (Shelf life)

    1. carrie says:

      It will last up to 6 months. Thank you.

  10. Kathy Jackson says:

    Hi Carrie. I’m very interested in trying this recipe, but I’m concerned about the coconut oil staining my clothes. Is this a problem, and if so, how do you combat it?

    1. carrie says:

      I haven’t had an issue with it. I usually put it one first thing when I’m getting ready and allow it to dry completely before putting on my clothes (10-15 minutes). I usually do my make-up or hair while it’s drying in a rob and I haven’t had any issues with the rob or staining on my clothes. Thanks!

      1. Sharon says:

        Is there anything go you can use in place of the baking soda? Can I just leave it out?

        1. carrie says:

          You can leave it out and double the arrow root powder or use cornstarch instead. Thank you!

  11. Moksha Lifestyle says:

    Excellent post and wonderful blog, I love to read your articles because your writing style is too good.

    1. carrie says:

      Thank you!

  12. Doon says:

    Thank you for the recipe.
    What can I replace arrowroot with?
    Thank you.

    1. carrie says:

      You can use cornstarch instead of arrowroot – Thank you!

  13. Charlene says:

    Where do you buy Shea butter?

    1. carrie says:

      I purchase mine on Amazon. I got the African Shea Butter last time I ordered some and I really liked it!

  14. Anick Montpetit says:

    ok I’m doing this recipe tonight i will add like mentionned the 2 table spoon of beewax and we’ll see how it goes. I’ll come back and leave a comment.

    1. carrie says:

      Thank you – I can’t wait to hear how it goes!

  15. VedaOils says:

    I love the natural deodorant because it smells good and good for the skin. Thanks for this awesome post!

  16. Ditte-Marie says:

    I made it last night and unfortunately the oils separates from the rest after it has set and lies on top not incorporated with the rest. I make a lot of other products with a lot of the same ingredients and never experienced that. Do you have any ideas what makes the oil separate?

    1. carrie says:

      I have never had that happen either. I incorporate the oils when the shea butter and coconut oil is in the liquid form and them back sure you place it in the refrigerator to re-solidify. If you leave it at room temperature, the oils will have time to separate before it re-solidifies but I don’t have that issue when I place it in the refrigerator.

  17. Carol says:

    I made this as written (half recipe), with beeswax added as suggested, except I used about 5 drops each of lavender and tea tree oil and it wasn’t too much. I’m very happy with it so far, but we’ll have to see how it does in the summer when I’m a lot sweatier and the temperature in the house gets higher than the melting point of coconut oil!
