DIY Deodorant

My lovely cousin, Alyssa, got me into making my own deodorant! This saves us from absorbing toxins, especially aluminum and fake scents, through our skin, and is better for the planet! There are a few ways you can make it, but this one has worked really well for me:


  • 2 tbs melted coconut oil

  • 2 tbs castor oil

  • 3 tbs + 1tsp arrowroot starch

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 6-8 drops tea tree oil

  • up to 15 drops essential oils of whatever scent you want

I mixed this into a small jar, but if you have an empty/almost empty deodorant container, you can use that, too. Some essential oil combos I have really liked are:

  • lemon, lime, sweet orange, grapefruit

  • grapefruit, orange, lavender

  • pine needle, eucalyptus, lemon, rosemary
