Homemade All-Natural Deodorant

 Here is a great video on making your own Natural Deodorant.  Thank you Passionate Homemaking.

Please consider what chemicals you are applying to your underarms.  This area of the body has several lymph nodes.  Follow this link to read about the dangers that may be lurking in your deodorant and for frequently asked questions.
If you have teen girls this is a great project to do together while learning about healthy alternatives!

6-8 Tbsp Coconut oil (solid state)
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder or cornstarch (arrowroot is preferred)
  1. Combine equal portions of baking soda & arrowroot powder.
  2. Slowly add coconut oil and work it in with a spoon or hand blender until it maintains a firm but pliable texture. It should be about the same texture as commercial deodorant, solid but able to be applied easily. If it is too wet, add further arrowroot powder/cornstarch to thicken.
  3. You can either scoop this recipe into your old deodorant dispensers or place in a small container with lid and apply with fingers with each use. Makes about 1 cup. This recipe lasts about 3 months for two people with regular daily use.
