How to make aluminium and chemical free deodorant at home…

I don’t know about you, but as I get older I’ve become more aware of what chemicals I put on my skin. When you think about it, it’s make no sense to be putting chemicals under our armpits where our lymph nodes sit – the gateway to our immune system.


You are probably aware, our skin is our largest organ, so why aren’t we more discerning about what we use on our skin? Rather than using a toxic substances I recommend choosing a homemade substance that is super easy to make, easy to use and cost effective.


Since I was a kid, I’ve been lathering my body with all sorts of chemicals, drinking them, eating them, and since becoming vegetarian a few years ago, I reduced alcohol intake, and have become much more interested in what products I use.

Especially, when it comes to deodorant. Why would we lather our lymph nodes, the gateway to our immune system, with chemicals?

It’s such a weird concept.


For the past 6 months, I have been making my own deodorant, moisturiser, and now sunscreen…. and let me tell you they work!


I personally love to cook, and create in the kitchen. It’s my artistic expression, and when I researched the basic ingredients that went into making these products, there were very similar base ingredients, so it makes purchasing in bulk so easy.

I spent $200 for 2 years’ worth of the ingredients required to continuously makes sunscreen, moisturiser and deodorant. I even make it for my family and friends, and they love it! Click here for the company I sourced the ingredients from.

It’s more affordable and nourishing that anything else on the market.



Homemade Deodorant recipe

2 1/2 tbsp unrefined coconut oil

1 tbsp of beeswax

2 1/2 tbsp shea butter

1/4 cup corn flour

1/1/2 tbsp bi carb

1 tbsp of rose water

And add essential oils you like – I usually use 6 drops of tea tree, 6 drops of lemon, and 6 drops of lavender.

Step 1:

Melt the shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax in a double boiler mix (A dish over lightly boiling water in a saucepan). Make sure the oil doesn’t boil; you want it to be to just melt over a low heat. Remove from the heat once it’s melted.

Step 2:

Stir in the remaining ingredients, not over the heat, as these oils have a high boiling point, and the molecular structure will be damaged if the oil is heated too high. The heat from the other ingredients is enough.

Step 3:

Once all the ingredients are mixed, power into jar while it is in a liquid state. This part need to be done quickly, as it will dry quickly, especially if you are in a cold place.

Step 4:

Store in an airtight container in the fridge or in a cool place. Use within 6 months.



Using Bi carb or baking soda can cause a skin rash for some people. If this happens try reducing the amount of Bi card you use by a third, and you can also use this essential oil combination to treat the skin rash symptoms.
