Easy Homemade Deoderant

I started out our natural journey with a basic curiosity for how my grandma would have made life’s basic necessities. It grew to understanding how our modern food has begun to make us sick. It is my personal experience and belief we have gotten to far from farm to table. I know I took for granted not knowing what was being put in my faster, pre-made food and products I was putting on my body. Now, I care, I deeply care. I care because I know and see everyday how sick Mark is. I have seen with my own eyes how changing his diet has begun to heal his body. It has been a down right scary process. I am thankful between a couple of companies we trust and some homemade remedies, Mark’s body finds relief.

One of the simple ingredients we were able to change out was our deodorant. As much as possible we will try to purchase from Daisy Blue Naturals. When our budget is low we can easily make it from things we keep on hand in our kitchen. The basic rule of thumb is if you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, don’t put it on your body.

Deodorant recipe:
8 TBLS (also 1/2 cup) coconut oil, warmed
1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1/4 cup baking soda

Stir together and store in a container in a cool place (under 70 degrees). We store ours in the refrigerator.

Ingredients: The only thing missing is the arrowroot powder

The mixture poured into a plastic container

The deodorant after it has sat in the fridge.

Easy, frugal and it works equals a great combination. To add scent to your deodorant simply add a couple of drops your favorite essential oil. Some of the best ones is eucalyptus, peppermint, lemon or orange oils.



My rebel heart loves Jesus. It has been a journey learning about his love for me, but he continues to fight for me and has won my heart. I am learning to love and respect my husband Mark. After four years of being a mommy I fell in love with the role God had given me and I am now a passionate homeschool, stay at home mom. I love outdoor adventures with my family and our husky Skye. I love creating delicious physically and emotionally satisfying meals. I love walking life's hard road with those around me. I want to be a friend to the friendless and be a beacon of light and hope to the weary.
