Homemade Coconut Oil Deodorant

Homemade Coconut Oil Deodorant

Looking for an inexpensive, natural alternative to store-bought, chemical laden deodorant? Look no further than your kitchen! Making your own natural coconut oil deodorant is easy and fun. Coconut oil is excellent for use in beauty products because it is nourishing, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and smells divine! I absolutely love this recipe and I hope you do too!

Homemade Coconut Oil Deodorant


  • 6 tablespoons organic, cold-pressed coconut oil

  • 4 tablespoons baking soda

  • 4 tablespoons arrowroot or cornstarch

  • 5-10 drops essential oil, such as lavender or eucalyptus (optional)



  1. Stir baking soda and arrowroot together in a medium sized bowl.

  2. Add coconut oil to the bowl, mash with a fork until well mixed with dry ingredients.

  3. Stir in drops of essential oils if desired.

  4. Store in a small glass jar or old deodorant container for easy application.*

* Note:  Coconut oil will solidify in cold temperatures. Store your homemade deodorant in a warm location and warm if needed to soften the oil. If the deodorant gets too hard, you can soften it by rubbing between your palms for a smoother application.
