Homemade Deodorant

I came across an easy recipe the other day and after seeing all those scary elements about toxic ingredients in deodorant causing cancer, I decided to give a try! It came out well and works effectively.

It smells refreshing, absorbs sweat, detoxifies your pits and won’t melt.


  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 5 tbsp cornflour
  • 5 tbsp baking soda
  • 20 drops lemon eucalyptus essential oil
  • 1 tbsp beeswax

What Each Ingredient Does

Baking soda & cornflour – Absorb sweat and sebum on skin and neutralise stink.

Coconut oil – Anti-inflammatory, moisturises skin, prevents skin irritation & rashes. It also keeps the deodorant a nice creamy but solid consistency as you can see in the picture.

Lemon eucalyptus essential oil – This essential oil smells like a milder version of citronella.

The scent is not as strong and overpowering as citronella and you can definitely detect the sweet eucalyptus scent with a hint of lemon. It smells refreshing and cools your skin. Lemon eucalyptus gives this deodorant a refreshing and neutral scent for both men and women.

Beeswax – the best skin care ever: anti inflammatory, anti allergenic, anti microbial, moisterising, healing brushes, burns or exzema


  1. Combine all ingredients (except the essential oil) in a pan over a low heat.
  2. Stir with a wooden spoon until everything melts.
  3. Add the lemon eucalyptus essential oil and stir well with a chopstick.
  4. Voila! It’s ready! Store at room temperature in a cool dark place. It lasts over 3 months!
