Best Homemade Natural Deodorant Recipe

Hi.. I'm Jennifer Persson for HEALTHIENSIDE,
Today I want to talk about something that we can probably all relate to body odor. We've all experienced and let's talk a little bit more about it.

Why Do We Sweat?

Sweat is one of the body's natural ways of getting rid of toxins. That's why so many people go to saunas, so what also happens when we exercise when it's really hot outside. It's the body's way of trying to cool down and then of course we sweat when we're nervous stressed or anxious.

What Causes Body Odor?

The interesting thing is that sweat is actually odor less. The bad smell is produced when the sweat comes in contact with the bacteria on our skin and this typically happens in places like the underarm area.

Chemical Deodorant Is Not Friendly

Now of course everybody's immediate solution is to apply deodorant and it doesn't matter what kind as long as we're not smelling and we're not sweating. But the sad thing is that most deodorants sold in stores are full of harmful chemicals things like aluminum triclosan, parabens, propylene glycol and these chemicals have been linked to things like cancer and Alzheimer's. You can do your own research and you'll see that the best thing to do is avoid them.

How to Make Simplest Natural Deodorant at Home

Our skin is the largest organ so anything that we put on it is easily absorbed into the body and our underarm area is very sensitive. So the best way to go is by using natural deodorants. I have actually tried making different ones here at home.

Natural Deodorant Recipe

I've tested them out some didn't work very well but today I'm going to share the one that actually works for me and that leaves me smelling fresh all day long zero body odor. So let me show you how to make it;

So for this deodorant we will need;

  1. 1/3 cup of unrefined coconut oil
  2. 1/3 cup of cornstarch.
  3. 2 tablespoons of baking soda and,  
  4. 10 drops of tea tree oil. 

Coconut oil contains anti bacterial and anti-fungal properties so this is exactly what we need to fight the body odor.


Cornstarch helps to absorb moisture so this will keep us dry all day long.

Baking soda is a very well-known odor neutralizer. That's why people place an open box in the fridge because it absorbs the odor.

And like cornstarch it also absorbs moisture perfect for sweaty underarms.

And tea tree oil has antibacterial properties, so it will help kill the bacteria that causes body odor. And it also has a very pleasant scent.

So I like to add the first three ingredients into a bow land mix it all very well. And then I add the  drops of tea tree oil, and I keep mixing until I have this creamy consistency. Then I pour it all into a glass jar and it's important to remember that coconut oil melts at a temperature 76 of degrees Fahrenheit. So depending on the temperature inside your house this might turn solid or stay liquidy.

You can also store it in the fridge if you want it to be solid. Then it's all ready to use I just take a little bit on my fingers and rub this into the underarm, and then I grab more and rub it into the other one and I'm good to go. No sweat or body odor.

so that's it it's so quick and easy to make and most importantly its effective. No need to use those deodorants that put our health at risk. You can make this yourself right in your kitchen and you can also customize it by using your favorite essential oil, it doesn't have to be tea tree oil. That's just the one that I like to use.
