Ingredients

  • DIY Deodorant Recipe

  • Materials & Supplies

  • small, wide-mouth glass jar – I use an old jelly jar. You need to be able to get your fingers in there, because you apply this with your fingers.

  • spoon

  • 1/4

    cup baking soda – Baking soda absorbs moisture, which helps keep you dry.

  • 10-20

    drops essential oil of your choice. If you don’t want to tinker, start with 15-20 drops of lavender, depending on how strong you want the scent to be.

Directions

You can make this DIY deodorant right in your jelly jar. Spoon in the baking soda, add your essential oil, and mix it up well. Choosing Your Essential Oils You can use whatever blend of essential oils you like in the recipe below, and I suggest putting at least one oil into your mix with antiseptic/antibacterial properties. Here are some antibacterial essential oils for you to consider: lemongrass thyme lavender tea tree rosemary geranium lemon The trick to tinkering with essential oils is knowing their strength. Lemon and lemongrass oils, for example, are very strong. Just a few drops will do the trick in this DIY deodorant recipe, where something less powerful like lavender takes 15-20 drops. My advice when getting used to essential oils is to start small. Add a few drops, mix, smell, repeat. You can always add more, but you can’t take away.

How to Apply Your DIY Deodorant It’s best to apply this right out of the shower. Give the jar a good shake before opening, then dip clean, dry fingers in, and pat the deodorant onto your pits. I do this over the sink, because it’s a little bit messier than applying stick deodorant. Pat – don’t rub – until the powder is no longer visible on your pits, and you’re good to go.
