Make your own Deodorant! (DIY)

HI Everyone,

I have been waiting to write this for a while… recently I have switched to making my own Vegan Deodorant… I mean, sure there are some brands out there that I like… but its so much cheaper and SO EASY with only 3 ingredients πŸ˜€ Β and you’ll know exactly what you are putting on your body!!


as you may or may not know there are toxins and chemicals in commercial products that can be extremely harmful… and our skin absorbs about 60% of what we put on it… these toxic products and especially deodorants have been linked to Breast cancer, infertility and birth defects…You can read my Blog on Toxic Ingredients to avoid HERE

SOOOOooo…I was Experimenting with a few different recipes and this is what I ended up with!! Safe and easy and only 3 ingredients πŸ™‚

You can also ad essential oils if you would like… but this works perfectly fine for me and gets rid of orders AND it does not stain your clothes πŸ™‚

You will need:Β 

  • 6 TBS Unrefined Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup All Natural Corn starch
  • 1/4 Cup Pure Baking Soda
  • Bowl for mixing
  • A Container for the Deodorant ( I just use an old face cream Jar, you can experiment πŸ˜‰ )

How to:Β 

  1. Mix the Baking soda and the Cornstarch together in the Bowl with a spoon. press on it with your spoon to get rid of any clumps.
  2. The coconut oil is solid, I DO NOT microwave my coconut oil as it changes the formula, I like to scoop out the 6 TBS and leave it out and it will liquefy ):
  3. Mix the coconut oil with your Cornstarch and baking soda and mix well…until a thick paste develops
  4. Pour it into your container and use as a paste!! ( this is what I do)
  5. OR you can use this as a Deodorant bar ( pour into and old deodorant bar) put it in the fridge and let it Harden!

there you go!!! you have yourself a deodorant!! like I said you can add essential oils if you like to change thing up, but this smells wonderful and gets rid of odors for me πŸ˜€

Hope you enjoyed this DIY! please follow me for more Vegan goodness!

as always YOU’RE WELCOME πŸ˜‰

Love & Peace

  1. Hi:) I have done this in the past and it did not work for me:( I gave it lots of time to work, too, and honestly I did not realize I could smell so funky until I tried using this amongst other natural deodorants:(
    Nonetheless, I’m glad that it has truly worked for you amongst others:)
    Finding a good, long-lasting, natural deodorant has been really tough for me. Any brands you would recommend for someone that is very active?

  2. I tried making my own deodorant but eventually after 3 hours I would smell :c. I added some vitamin e and lavender oil that made it a bit better. Do have any recommendations for deodorants out in the market?


    1. oh awesome πŸ™‚ I am glad it worked for someone else too!!! I was starting to think it was only working for me.. haha πŸ˜€ thanks for commenting… and how do you not need it? I want your secret πŸ˜€


  3. This is awesome – heard of making your own moisturiser/ lipbalm/ conditioner, but deodorant’s a first! Will give this a go – thanks! Loving your posts by the way, very original and interesting πŸ™‚
