Deodorant Recipe

Here’s are two super simple DIY recipes for a pure chemical-free deodorant. The first is our favourite and suitable for most people, and the second is a clay-based deodorant for especially sensitive skin.

Ingredients to make a deodorant and some lavender

Natural Deodorant with baking soda


How to make

  1. In a small bowl, whisk arrowroot powder with baking soda until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Place coconut oil in a small heatproof glass bowl. Microwave until melted and completely smooth.
  3. Whisk coconut oil into arrowroot mixture along with essential oils until a paste forms. Pour into jar.
  4. Using fingers, rub a small amount (the size of a pea) of paste under your armpit with your fingers and spread out gently.
  5. Store at room temperature for up to 1 year.

At temperatures starting from 40 degrees Celsius this deodorant can melt. Keep this in mind when you travel. In the Dutch climate there is nothing to worry about and the deodorant remains a cream. Is the deodorant melted? No problem, just stir before use! This does not influence the effectiveness of the deodorant.

Did you know that…

Tea tree, lavender and lemongrass essential oils are all very powerful odour fighters. Add a few drops and you’ll be smelling sweet! If you want to try them all we have the everyday essential oil package.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is anti-fungal and antiseptic, so it's a natural deodoriser. It also absorbs moisture from the skin and keeps it dry. Be careful not to use too much as it may irritate the skin.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a terrific emollient. It is rich in antioxidants, acts as an antimicrobial agent and moisturises.

Cornstarch or Arrowroot Powder

Using cornstarch or arrowroot powder thickens and stabilises mixtures, and helps the skin to absorb moisture. These are available at your local supermarket.

Natural Deodorant without baking soda

If you find that a baking soda-based deodorant is irritating to your skin, here is a different option to try. It includes bentonite and kaolin clay which both have absorbent and detoxifying properties. Be sure to use a glass jar or container which you already own to store this deodorant in. A little goes a long way! We also have an aluminium tin. We have received feedback that this is more suitable for people who don’t sweat too much and have sensitive skin.


How to make

  1. Mix the dry ingredients (bentonite clay, cornstarch and kaolin clay) in a bowl and set to one side.
  2. Melt the beeswax and coconut oil with a bain-marie.
  3. Gradually add the bowl of dry ingredients into the wax and oil, stirring it to a smooth consistency.
  4. Remove the bowl from the heat, and wait till it cools a little but is still liquid before stirring in the essential oil.
  5. Pour the cream into your jar or container and let it cool down completely before use.
  6. Rub a small amount (the size of a pea) of paste under your armpit with your fingers and spread out gently.
