DIY with Dani- Homemade Natural Deodorant

Hello All, This week’s DIY with Dani is about making natural deodorant at home. The recipe I use is very simple and easy to make. I am a major sweater and I have tried every kind of deodorant on the market from super chemical to all natural crystals but this is the only one that I do not sweat off. I still sweat but it keeps me smelling fresh even when I am stress sweating. I also have super sensitive underarms and I haven’t had a problem- rash, burning, pain- with this deodorant.

What you need:

1/4 cup of baking soda

1/4 cup of arrowroot or cornstarch

6 tablespoons of coconut oil

essential oil


1. Mix together baking soda and arrowroot/cornstarch

2. Stir in coconut oil (a fork helps to mash it together if the coconut oil isn’t liquid enough)

3. Add in a few drops of the essential oil/s of your choice

4. Put it in a clean glass jar đŸ™‚

Apply the deodorant using your fingers. You only need about a pea size amount for each armpit and the jar does not need to be refrigerated.

This is my gear: Organic coconut oil, aluminum free/pure baking soda, and pure cornstarch. I use rose essential oil. Tea Tree oil can be added as an antibacterial component but it is not good for sensitive skin.
