DIY Deodorant

To avoid toxins on your skin, you can make your own deodorant.

Easy DIY Deodorant


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil*
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup arrow root
  • 10 or more drops essential oils ** of your choice (optional)

Mix baking soda and arrowroot powder. Add coconut oil and blend until smooth. Add your choice of essential oils, blend again.

Store in a jar or fill an empty plastic deodorant dispenser.

* I use Refined Coconut Oil. Vitacost sells an odorless, flavorless refined coconut oil that can be used for body care without the overwhelming coconut scent.
