Home Made Grapefruit Deodorant

22/11/2013 admin DIY Recipes


Up until about a year ago, I was pretty darn frustrated by the host of weird and in most cases toxic ingredients in commercial deodorants. And though I’ve tried just about every natural deodorant I could lay my hands on, none of them were very effective or practical. Most of the natural choices sport such a long list of polyunsaturated oils that they’ve frankly lost my attention. If I wouldn’t put most of those oils in my body why would I choose to absorb it daily through my skin? Home-made deodorant to the rescue.

You know what I love? Simple, luxurious, nutritious body products. I adore products that are a wise pleasure to rub into my skin…to make a part of my body.

About a year ago I began experimenting in my own kitchen and guess what!??! I perfected a recipe for a natural and nourishing all day homemade deodorant that works. Seriously, my friend even gave it her 10-mile run test and…no stink! Here’s to your fresh-scented health!


*If you have very sensitive skin, try substituting arrowroot for the baking soda or for a portion of the baking soda. Please note that this will lower the effectiveness of the deodorant. Also, don’t worry about aluminum in baking soda – it’s a myth. Baking powder may contain aluminum, but not baking soda.


  1. Gently melt the cocoa butter, coconut oil and sweet almond oil on low heat. As soon as fat elements are melted, remove pan from heat.
  2. Add essential oils to melted fats and set aside.
  3. Add dry ingredients to a separate bowl and use a whisk to combine.
  4. Add liquid oils to dry ingredients and use whisk to completely combine.
  5. Do not wait to pack your jars. Pour deodorant into jars while it is a thick, liquefied paste.
  6. Place your filled jars in the refrigerator to set. The result (kept at room temperature) should be a moisture-rich paste.


This deodorant can be stored in a room temperature environment. However, if your home regularly rises above 85F, you should store your deodorant in a cooler place as it might separate.
