How to Make Your Own Natural Deodorant

  • 1 min read

Making your own natural deodorant is an excellent way to cut down on plastic packaging and reduce your exposure to toxic chemicals used in many store-bought deodorant products.

Your homemade natural deodorant will be aluminium-free and free from harmful petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, sodium laurel sulphate and parabens.

A natural deodorant won't completely stop you from sweating, which is an important natural bodily function. Making the switch to a homemade deodorant with no harsh chemicals, generally reduces perspiration after your body naturally adjusts.  

Ingredients such as coconut oil and bicarb soda inhibit bacteria, and coconut oil is also moisturising.

Homemade Deodorant Recipe One

● 1 part bicarb soda
● 6 parts cornflour

Mix in a reusable and resealable container. Close the container and shake vigorously for about one minute to thoroughly mix the two powders. Dab a small amount on the skin of your armpits with a soft cloth, or cotton pad.

Homemade Deodorant Recipe Two

● ½ cup bicarb soda
● ½ cup cornflour
● A few drops of tea tree oil
● 2 whole bay leaves

Combine ingredients. Moisten underarms or apply straight after a shower. Pat on with a reusable wipe or sprinkle on a wet washcloth.

Homemade Deodorant Recipe Three


  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1/4 cup bicarb soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp essential oil


Combine cornflour and baking soda (start with ¼ cup of each). Then add as much coconut oil as necessary to get the consistency you desire. It is best to heat the coconut oil a bit first. Add your preferred essential oil and store in jars for use.
