Homemade Deodorant

I have tried almost every natural deodorant from the store and none of them seemed to work!!! I was embarrassed to raise my arms because none of them made my armpit smell go away haha. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and did a little research on easy natural homemade deodorants.


The easiest homemade deodorant recipe I found is not even a recipe (found on www.cavegirleats.com). It is simply dipping your fingers into two different ingredients. The two ingredients are cold pressed unrefined coconut oil and aluminum free baking soda. I have a jar of each on my dresser. Every morning I dip my fingers into the coconut oil and smear a thin layer on my arm pits. Next, I dip my fingers into the baking soda and tap some baking soda on top of the coconut oil.

Coconut oil and baking soda definitely works! My arm pits do not smell anymore and I know that both ingredients are safe enough to eat!


-Cold Pressed Unrefined Coconut Oil
-Aluminum Free Baking Soda

I use the these ingredients:

Virgin Coconut Oil, Gold Label             Bob’s Red Mill Baking Soda 


  1.  Smear a thin layer of coconut oil onto arm pits
  2.  Tap some baking soda on top of the coconut oil

Enjoy your clean tropical smelling pits!
