How to Make an Excellent Deodorant at Home

This recipe for a deodorant is incredibly easy to make with household ingredients and works perfectly.

It feels nice, smells nice, leaves no stains and is completely natural.

I used it all through the summer heat and honestly feel like it worked better than any commercial deodorant I’ve ever used.

To make your own deodorant, simply mix an equal amount of (melted) coconut oil, baking soda and starch. The ingredients have an antibacterial effect, it feels good, and it’s easy to apply!

If you keep it in the fridge, you can use it as a roll-on, I have mine in a little pot in the bathroom and just dip in my finger to apply it.

The recipe below lasted almost half a year for me.

You can add some essential oils too, if you like (just check before that you’re not allergic).

I used clove, which has a nice earthy smell and also adds another antibacterial component.

4 Tbsp. coconut oil
4 Tbsp. baking soda
4 Tbsp. starch


  1. Melt coconut oil
  2. Mix baking soda and starch. It is best to sieve both powders so that there are no lumps.
  3. Add coconut oil and mix all ingredients well.
  4. Add essential oils if you like.
  5. Fill into a jar or container.

Apply and enjoy your new deodorant!

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the I AM CREATOR School as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.

Ask yourself:

Am I ready to explore what else is possible for me? Am I curious to learn more about myself and my powers?
