Ah, deodorant. One of those very personal things that most people trying to go toxin-free struggle with – because nothing works like the chemically-laden antiperspirants out there. The goal of a deodorant isn’t to stop you from sweating, but rather to nullify the smell.

I have tried Purely Great Natural Deodorant, which is one of my go-tos, and my very active friend tried a Green Virgin Products Deodorant Stone, which she found effective after a workout (she was also very pleased that it didn’t cause any armpit rashes the way her other deodorants did). But what about DIY options? There are A TON out there!

DIY deodorant recipes juicygreenmomHere are some easy DIY deodorant recipes that are simple enough for even a lazy DIY-er like me to try!

1 – Easy DIY Deodorant from Overthrow Martha

If you’ve read my Detox Your Home & DIY Guide (if you haven’t, you can win an ebook version here!), you’ll know that I love Sherri from Overthrow Martha because she has AWESEOME DIY recipes. Also she’s very sweet. ūüôā This is a simple recipe with coconut oil, arrowroot flour, baking soda, and essential oils that she has been using for years.

2 – DIY Deodorant with Bentonite Clay & Coconut Oil from Overthrow Martha

Sherri made a variation of the first recipe by adding bentonite clay to the mix to increase the sweat-fighting power.

3 – Easy Homemade Deodorant Recipe for Sensitive Skin from Homemade Mommy

Lindsey from Homemade Mommy has another variation with the same ingredients from Sherri’s recipes, but she also adds shea butter to the mix. This makes it easier to apply if you’re in a colder climate where coconut oil is rock solid at room temperature.

4 – DIY Deodorant from The Crunchy Moose

This is another softer paste recipe with a combination of coconut oil, arrowroot powder, corn starch, baking soda, and essential oils.

5 – Homemade Deodorant: Summertime Strength from The Sprouting Seed

If you want a soft deodorant with very few ingredients, here’s a recipe¬†with just 3 ingredients to make the base, and then you can add essential oils to it.

6 РDIY Solid Deodorant from Life Sanity

Kara from Life Sanity has a mix that works well as a deodorant stick, with shea butter, baking soda, cornstarch, coconut oil, and essential oils. This would be a fun one to make & give away as gifts! I have seen larger sized paperboard tubes (like I used for my lip balm recipe) that would be perfect for this!

7¬†– DIY Natural Deodorant Solid Recipe from Don’t Mess With Mama

Tracey from Don’t Mess with Mama wanted a solid deodorant (I personally would too!) so she has a recipe that also has beeswax to help it have the right consistency.

8 РNatural Deodorant Recipe for Sensitive Skin from Healy Eats Real

Hannah from Healy Eats Real has another solid deodorant recipe here with beeswax, coconut oil, arrowroot powder, baking soda, bentonite clay, and essential oils.

9 – All Natural Deodorant from Butter Nutrition

Catherine from Butter Nutrition‘s take on a solid deodorant also incorporates aloe vera gel and vitamin e, along with many of the other ingredients in the other solid deodorant recipes.

10 РNontoxic Deodorant Spray from Life Sanity

If you’re more of a deodorant spray person, then this recipe will be perfect for you, because it’s by far the easiest one I’ve seen. No time needed to melt stuff down, just pour the ingredients into a spray bottle and go! Woohoo!
