In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make deodorant with my favorite natural deodorant recipe. But before we get started, there are a few things you should know:


When you switch from using conventional deodorants to natural deodorants, you might go through a transition period.


During this period, you might get a rash under your arms when you use it or it might be irritated or itchy.


If this happens, there are things you can do to help such as leaving out baking soda from the ingredients list or doing an armpit detox to get rid of all of the toxins that have built up over time from using conventional deodorants.

Tools and materials:

  • Shea butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Baking soda
  • Arrowroot powder
  • Essential oils (optional)
  • Jar
Natural deodorant ingredients

1. Gather your ingredients

You need 2 TBSPs of shea butter, 3 TBSPs of coconut oil, 3 TBSPs of baking soda, and 2 TBSPs of arrowroot powder.


You can also use essential oils, but these are optional. I like to use them to get a natural fragrance. 

Combining shea butter and coconut oil

2. Combine the shea butter and coconut oil

Combine the shea butter and coconut oil in a quart-sized glass mason jar.

Melting shea butter and coconut oil

3. Melt the shea butter and coconut oil

Place the mason jar in a small saucepan of water over medium heat until the ingredients are melted.

Adding baking soda and arrowroot powder

4. Add the baking soda and arrowroot powder

Remove the mason jar from heat and add the baking soda and arrowroot powder to the melted oils.

Mixing

5. Mix

Mix everything together until it’s completely combined.

Adding essential oils

6. Add essential oils

Add the essential oils if you’re using them and mix well.

7. Pour the mixture into a container or jar and store

Pour the mixture into a glass jar or old deodorant container for storage.


You don’t need to store the mixture in the fridge and you can keep it at room temperature, but it may take several hours to completely harden.


Placing it in the fridge can speed up the hardening process.

That’s it! This homemade deodorant recipe is easy to follow and the final result is fantastic to use.


DIY deodorant is cheaper because you can make more of it and it can last over a longer period of time as opposed to buying small portions.
