How To Make A Deodorant Using Coconut Oil And Baking Soda

The conventional deodorant antiperspirants work great, if you don’t mind infusing your armpits with aluminum and other additives.

For those of us who have sought a more natural option, you may have noticed that the pickings are rather slim. There are a lot of natural deodorants out there that works really well.

In 5 minutes or less, you can make your own natural deodorant at home without all those chemical additives.

Using a few simple ingredients, you can make your own all-natural, skin soothing deodorant, scented exactly the way you like it. It's so simple and gratifying, you'll never go back to your old deo.

Coconut Oil Deodorant

- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
- Essential oils (optional)


1. Mix the baking soda and arrowroot powder together in a bowl.
2. Add the coconut oil and mash it with a fork or a spoon until well mixed. The texture should be firm but pliable so you are able to easily apply it, so you can add more coconut oil or arrowroot powder to achieve your desired consistency.
3. Then add the essential oils if you want.
4. Store the mixture in a small glass jar and apply a small amount with your fingers into your underarms.
Remember that coconut oil begins to melt at 76 F (25 C), so if the weather is warm, store your deodorant in the refrigerator.

Below you will find the ingredients' role in this natural deodorant:

* Coconut oil has antiseptic benefits due to its medium-chain fatty acid called lauric acid. It also nourishes and moisturizes the skin.
* Baking soda is a natural deodorizer. It kills the bacteria that causes body odors, so it can be effectively used to your underarms.
* Arrowroot is a starch extracted from the rhizomes of the arrowroot plant. Many recipes use arrowroot powder or cornstarch powder which absorbs moisture.
* Adding a few drops of tea tree oil is a good option as it has antiseptic properties, but you can easily change the scent of your deodorant by using other essential oils such as lavender, rose, or eucalyptus.
