Homemade Natural Deodorant

I tried making my own deodorant! I was inspired by reading this blog:

Here is what I used: 

3 tablesppons of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of cornstarch (I actually need to add 1 more tablespoon)
1 teaspoonof baking soda (I actually need to add 1 more tablespoon)
A few drops of essential oil

See a video of me when I've been working from home all day! ;-p

I added all of the ingredients in a small container, mixed it all up and viola! Homemade deodorant, yay!




  1. Interesting! I'd love to try this! Did you used tea tree oil? Lavender may be nice too, I think I heard it's a bit disinfectant.

  2. Hi Cassie, yes I used a few drops of tea tree oil (which I absolutely love). I am sure lavender oil will be great, too! I ended up adding an extra TABLEspoon of each cornstarch and baking soda (without it it was too oily). I've been wearing this new deodorant since and I have no complaints. I do use a tiny spoon to take it out of the jar and put in on though :)
