Homemade natural Deodorant

You will need

  1. 1/2 cup unrefined virgin coconut oil
  2. 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  3. 3/4 tablespoon baking soda
  4. 1/2 teaspoon activated charcoal powder*

Essential oils

  1. peppermint 8 drops
  2. tangerine 8 drops
  3. bergamot 8 drops
  4. lemongrass 5 drops
  5. melaleuca (tea tree) 10 drops
  6. lavender 8 drops
  7. rosemary 6 drops


  1. Combine all ingredients together and mash with a fork until well blended and smooth. If the mixture is too runny, place in the refrigerator or a cool place to harden a bit. This deodorant should maintain a paste consistency so it’s best stored at room temperature in a glass container with a lid. To apply, simply use your fingers to rub a small amount onto your underarm area.
  2. Both my sister and I find that this new formula last all day long, however, you can apply this as often as you need to.


  1. *Use less charcoal if the recipe is too dark. Use more if it’s too light. The color should be a light grey.
  2. Tip: For a more firm deodorant and hands free application, you can fill an empty deodorant tube with this paste and keep in the refrigerator.
