DIY Natural Deodorant

Published March 29, 2015 by lynn k scott

Over the last couple of years, I have been removing chemicals from my life, my home and my food.  It’s a lengthy process and one many people balk at.  They either think making your own products is time consuming or they cannot get past the commercialism that has surrounded their entire existence and they think purchasing pre-made items is the only option.

I beg to differ.

While I can’t remove 100% of chemicals from my life (I’ll never stop dying my hair – grey is not an option lol), I can do my part to minimize some of them; esp. what I ingest or what goes on my body.

That being said, I discovered an AMAZING DIY (Do It Yourself) deodorant that is more effective than anything I’ve tried previously.  Believe me, I’m all about testing out recipes before passing them along to friends and now my followers.

I made this recipe a couple months ago.  It really lasts quite awhile and is easy to use.  I will caution, should you choose to add an essential oil, please remember you should store your finished product in a glass container, as essential oils can pull from the plastic it’s held in.

I haven’t purchased deodorant in the last couple of years.  Yup, I’ve been making it myself for that long and thanks to this deodorant recipe, I have found my favorite!  It’s really quite simple; only 3 ingredients.  You just need coconut oil, baking soda and arrow root powder (found in the spice aisle).  Oddly enough, I use arrow root powder in gluten-free cooking, so I had plenty on hand to try this.

I admit, I was a bit skeptical, but I made up a batch, used it right before I took my daughter hiking and it worked like a charm!  I simply store mine in a Pampered Chef glass mini measuring bowl with a plastic lid.  I use my fingers to apply.  Not a big deal.  I’m at the sink and just wash my hands.  Not to mention, I’m being green by using dishes and not having to throw a container away every so often.

So there you have it.  Give it a try.  I bet you will be pleasantly surprised and odor free!
