I save our family $13 dollars for every stick of homemade deodorant with essential oils that I make!

It is so fun to save money and make things simply at home. When I say simply, I mean it! I make my own homemade cleaners with essential oils too and it takes me less than an hour to get them all made.  Talk about saving money! {That will be an upcoming blog post} I also, love that everything we put on or in our bodies in our home is non-toxic and devoid of chemicals and synthetics. God gave us so many beautiful ingredients to use that our bodies actually recognize and can help improve our health. Here at Feasting On Joy we love to use the gifts God has given us.

Do you ever have something you’ve intended to do for a while but never get around to it? Well, deodorant was it for me. However, once I made it, I regretted taking so long to make it because of the money I could’ve saved and it was so easy!

This deodorant will take only ten minutes to make and uses simple, natural products including our favorite Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils!

This Deodorant Is Strong and Effective Even For A Man!

Here’s what I learned when making homemade deodorant with doTERRA Essential Oils

  • Deodorant is spelled with an “o” after the second d, not an “e.”
  • I shouldn’t have put off making this for so long!
  • I can save my family so much money by making homemade toiletries {next up – toothpaste.}
  • It’s fun to mix and match favorite oils.

About The Ingredients I Used

  • I used a 2.65oz. deodorant container and had a little bit of deodorant mixture left over.
  • I buy my organic coconut oil here.
  • I used this arrowroot powder
  • I buy my avocado oil at Costco because it’s a great price for a lot!
  • I used these organic beeswax pellets.

Let’s Get To The Recipe!

Homemade Deodorant With doTERRA Essential Oils That Works!

  • 3T. Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 C. Arrowroot Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. Avocado oil
  • 1 T. Organic Beeswax Pellets
  • 1/4 C. Baking Soda
  • 1- 2.65oz. Deodorant Container
  • 15 Drops of doTERRA Essential Oils *I used 6 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Lemongrass, 2 drops of Douglas Fir & 5 drops of Melaleuca.
  • If you are prone to rashes from arrowroot or baking soda under your arms, see the instructions for an alternate recipe.

Instructions: In a small saucepan, combine coconut oil, avocado oil and beeswax pellets. Melt at low to medium heat until all melted. Stir to combine. Add arrowroot powder and baking soda and stir to combine. Let mixture cool until it’s warm to the touch and not hot. *VERY IMPORTANT. Once the deodorant has cooled, mix in your combination of essential oils. I chose these oils because they are effective at reducing bacteria, they smell good and they support thyroid function, adrenal function, help with skin rejuvenation and are soothing. This may sound weird but, if you wanted, you could actually EAT this deodorant. Personally, that’s the kind of toiletry I want to use. *This will make one stick with a little left over*
**If you are prone to get rashes from either too much arrowroot or baking soda, I have an alternative recipe that won’t cause a rash. Using the recipe above, decrease the arrowroot to 3 Tlbs., the baking soda to 3 Tlbs. and increase the beeswax to 2 Tlbs.
