Homemade Deodorant Stick | @VeggieConverter diybeauty essentialoils

Store-bought deodorant is full of all kinds of icky chemicals. But some of the homemade or all-natural stuff just doesn’t work for me. I’ve finally found one that works great. It’s made from cornstarch, baking soda and coconut oil with a bit of essential oil mixed in. I absolutely love the citrus-cinnamon smell of the Christmas Spirit oil, but Purification works great for odor elimination, so choose what you like!

I’m planning to make my husband some manly deodorant with the Citrus blend essential oil next month. It sounds like a manly enough scent for him. What is your favorite scent?

Homemade Deodorant Stick

Makes 2 sticks

Ingredients

1/4 cup cornstarch (I use this kind) or arrowroot powder
1/4 cup baking soda (I buy it here)
1/4 cup coconut oil (I buy mine here)
10-20 drops essential oil of choice (Purification is great for odor elimination and I love the smell of Christmas Spirit)

Method

Mix ingredients together by hand or in a stand mixer. Pack into deodorant containers. I used a large spoon to pour in the mixture and then regularly packed it down. When it was full, I smoothed the tops off with my hand.

    I followed every step but it didn’t work I’ve let it sit out for days to get hard and essential ois and coconut oil has dripped out and it has not stiffen up. What did I do wrong? I followed every step should I have used less coconut oil? Can I put these in the frig ? Or bets to just make a new patch?

      You can definitely keep it in the fridge or add a bit more odd the dry ingredients. Mine stays solid in my house (@ 70 degrees) but if you keep your house warmer it may not. Different brands of coconut oil may be an issue, too.
      Hope that helps!
