You don’t have to spend tons of time or money on the best all natural deodorant. This Homemade Deodorant Recipe is very simple to make and you know exactly what is in it. No complicated ingredients or harsh chemicals.
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.

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

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. 🙂
