Chemical Free Deodorant


The next step on my journey to live more sustainably and chemical free was to make my own deodorant.  I have tried a few different recipes and found one that works superbly and it couldn’t be simpler. I am now making it for the whole family!

Here is a simple step by step guide;

Gather your ingredients:

30g Shea Butter

20g Coconut Oil

10g Beeswax

15g Bi-Carb

25g Corn Flour

Bees Wax

Add the 30g Shea Butter, 20g Coconut Oil, 10g Beeswax to a pan and melt to a liquid, I used my Beko Dual Fuel Stove to melt my first lot of ingredients.  I love the gas cooktop, it makes cooking so precise no matter what concoction I am cooking up.


Next add in your dry ingredients, 15g Bi-Carb, 25g Arrowroot Flour and use a whisk to mix it all in together.

Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, I love rose geranium, if you’re making male deodorant you can try frankincense or tea tree.

essential Oil

Find an empty container or jar to recycle, ensure you can fit your hand/finger in the container to apply every day.  You don’t want to get a jar you can’t fit your finger all the way to the bottom that would just be frustrating!

Recycle Glass Jars

Pour it into the jar and it will set in a few hours depending on the temperature.  Simply rub a little on every day and voilà!
