Not too long ago, deodorants available in stores were considered wonder items. They protect you from body odor and are cheap. Studies about antiperspirants causing cancer then surfaced. Since deodorants are along that line of cosmetics, it shared the same reputation.

 

Even after learning the dangers of deodorants, many still use them. The upside is it gave birth to a green movement in the form of natural and homemade deodorant. More people have switched to natural deodorant while some want to make their own at home.

 

Here are some recipes you can use to make your own deodorant at the comfort of your home.

 

Make Your Own Deodorant Using Baking Soda

 

For this recipe, you need half a cup each of baking soda and corn starch.

You can also put the baking soda and corn starch together in a closed container and shake until they are thoroughly mixed.

 

Add a few drops of essential oil. Since bacteria cause the odor in perspiration, lavender is a good choice for its antibacterial properties as well as its gentleness on the skin. Add four or five drops of lavender essential oil and mix into the powder thoroughly, breaking up any clumps made by the oil.

 

Place the powder in an 8-oz. jar with a lid for storage. Attractive vintage cosmetic jars can be found in thrift stores. Use the product by dipping a cotton ball or powder puff into the powder and apply it to your underarms.

 

Make Your Own Deodorant Using Coconut Oil

 

For this recipe, you will need 6 tablespoons of coconut oil, 4 tablespoons baking soda, 4 tablespoons of cornstarch and 5 drops of lavender essential oil (optional).

 

Mix baking soda and cornstarch together in a medium sized bowl. Mash in coconut oil with a fork until well mixed. Add in the lavender essential oil if desired. You can store this in a small glass jar or old deodorant container for easy use.

 

Make Your Own Deodorant Using Kaolin Clay

 

For this recipe, you will need 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 3 tablespoons kaolin clay, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 5 drops lavender essential oil

You start by mixing together the coconut oil and the clay.  You should get a paste that is thick, but still somewhat sticky, though not runny.  Adjust your clay and coconut oil ratio as needed to get the right consistency.

 

Next, you add in the baking soda.  If you tend to have a difficult time with body odor, or you live in a very warm climate, you may want to increase the baking soda a little bit.

 

If you have sensitive skin, be careful because it can cause irritation if you mix in too much.  Finally, mix in the five drops of lavender essential oil. You can store this in a small glass container for use later.

 

Make Your Own Deodorant Using Tea Tree Oil

 

If you have sensitive skin, tea tree oil can be a great deodorant product for you. Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of corn starch. Make sure you mix the two well, then add 10 drops of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil works against fungus and germs and is a great antiseptic. Place the mixture in a jar or bowl and use a powder brush to apply to the skin.
Make Your Own Deodorant Using Talcum Powder

 

To make a paste or stick-like deodorant, mix 2 teaspoons each of baking soda, petroleum jelly and talcum powder. Heat all of the ingredients on low heat on the stove until the jelly has melted; stir constantly so that it does not stick. Once it has melted, pour the mixture into a container and store it tightly. Once the deodorant has cooled you can use it as a lotion.

 

Make Your Own Deodorant Using Zinc Oxide Powder

 

To make your own natural spray deodorant, mix 2 teaspoons of zinc oxide powder with two-third cup of witch hazel extract, 2 tablespoons of aloe-vera juice and 30 to 40 drops of lavender essential oil in a small bowl.

 

After you have mixed the ingredients well, pour into a small spray bottle. This is gentle enough to use every day. Keep the spray stored in your refrigerator; it will increase the shelf life.
