Homemade Deodorant – Do It Yourself Coconut Oil Deodorant

Live well…Live Life on Purpose!


Almost all the deodorants you see on store shelves contain many harmful ingredients which can be absorbed through your skin. Such armful chemicals include parabens,  triclosan, TEA & DEA,  aluminum, etc. These chemicals are particularly harmful in the case of deodorant as many of us (especially ladies!) shave right before applying deodorant.  Shaving causes imperceptible nicks in the skin, through which the chemicals can enter your body.

But maybe you already knew there are toxic chemicals in deodorant but did you know they are also in deodorants that are labeled “all natural”?……

Store Bought “All Natural” Deodorants are really NOT So Natural After All!

These so called all natural deodorants contain ingredients such as talc, fluoride, titanium dioxide, DEA, poloxamer 335, and aluminum chlorohydrate. (I found these ingredients on a very popular “all natural” deodorant)…. isn’t that AMAZING?

How is poloxamer 335 a natural substance? Well, it’s not. It is a manufactured chemical that does your body more harm than good.

What about the aluminum chlorohydrate and DEA? Not natural either, they are easily absorbed through the skin and have been associated with high risks of Alzheimer’s. DEA is a known carcinogen and has been restricted in Europe.

Talc particles have been found to cause tumors in the lungs and ovaries. Talc is dangerously similar to asbestos.

What To Use Instead?

Here is your recipe for ==>> Homemade Coconut Oil Deodorant!

There are two ways to make coconut oil deodorant. They are both equally effective! The second option, more closely resembles the consistency of a stick deodorant.

Coconut Oil Deodorant #1

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 5 drops of essential oil, such as tea tree oil, lavender, or lemon grass *optional

Wait, if the essential oils are optional, it’s just coconut oil? True, you can just use plain coconut oil and it works great! However, many prefer the added essential oils. Also, the baking soda in the next coconut oil deodorant aids in the antiperspirant effect.

Coconut Oil Deodorant # 2

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 6 tablespoons baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 5 drops of essential oil, such as tea tree oil, lavender, or lemon grass *optional

Go on…off you go and make the 100% natural deodorant you can be sure of!
