How to make Homemade Deodorant


You know how antiperspirants are aluminum-laden and store-bought deodorant just leaves you smelling like fruity B.O.? Try this. So simple, and it works!

  • 1 cup extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 8 drops tea tree oil
  • 20-24 drops essential oil of choice (I used lavender)

Melt coconut oil in a small pan over very low heat. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and arrowroot powder. Let cool for a few minutes, then stir in tea tree oil and essential oils. Pour mixture into empty, clean deodorant containers or a glass jars (apply with fingertips if using jar). Store in the fridge if your house is warmer than 75 degrees. Recipe makes a double-batch.
