DIY Deodorant

Wow, it's been so long since I've posted! Sorry bout that, life gets busy sometimes and time certainly flies by! So we have been on a DIY kick lately and after reading in so many places about how deodorants and antiperspirants are thought to "possibly" contribute to cancers, we thought we'd try some DIY deodorant and see if it works. And the only reason I'm even writing this post is to say...


Seriously, it really does!  I'm amazed and I wish I had done this years ago.  I've been using it for 3 weeks now and don't have any complaints!  Here is the recipe:

  • 1/4 cup Baking Soda
  • 1/4 cup Corn Starch
  • 5 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • Empty deodorant jar
The Coconut Oil does not have to be the extra virgin, expensive kind from the health food store.  (Although I do use that kind for lots of other stuff)  I picked this jar up from Walmart.  Coconut Oil can be stored in the pantry or the fridge.  76 degrees and above, it will be liquid.  76 degrees and below it will be a solid.  To make this recipe start with your coconut oil at room temp to make it easier to mix with the other ingredients.

Mix all 3 ingredients in a bowl and spoon into your empty deodorant jar.  Store in the fridge!

This amount make about 2 full size deodorant jars, or 4 of the travel size.

PS. It is easy to forget to put your deodorant on when storing it in the kitchen fridge instead of keeping it in the bathroom!!  You'll get used to it after a while! =)
