I’m so excited about this post, because I’ve been meaning to make my own deodorant for so long. Well, I finally did it the other day, and it came out GREAT! And what’s even better, is it couldn’t be easier! I made a coconut lemongrass scented one, but you can use whatever scented oils you want.

Here’s everything that you need (I also added some witch hazel to the excess I had to see if it would set, and it did. Witch hazel is great for soothing the skin and it’s won’t dry your skin out. I would recommend added it if you have any!):

Handmade Deodorant:

DIY Lemongrass and Coconut Oil Deodorant

  • 3 tablespoons baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil (I used virgin because it smells nice with lemongrass)
  • 1 tablespoon witch hazel
  • 10 (give or take) drops lemongrass oil

Mix everything together. I used a fork to make sure everything got incorporated.

It should look nice and smooth like this…

I used to get this (amazing) deodorant from this woman on Etsy, and she had a special where if you saved five deodorant tubes, you’d get a deodorant free. Well, I never got around to mailing them out, but I’m glad I saved them, because I was able to use one for my own deodorant. If you don’t have a tube, you can just leave it right in the bowl.

You do need to keep it in the fridge so it stays hard (the coconut oil is what makes it solid), but imagine how nice it will feel in the hot hot summer!
