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!

Recognize yourself, with the Wheel of Colours!

The Wheel of Colours gives us a glimpse into our subconscious and can thus enable us to analyse our very individual composition, our abilities and needs more precisely than we would be able to do in the conventional way, through talk therapy, or in contact with other people.

And with this certainty, we no longer have to keep trying to figure ourselves out, but can simply act accordingly.

Are you a creatrix?

Have you ever felt like you don’t quite belong? That you’re somewhat different from the rest of the people around you?

That there’s a yearning deep down, a knowing, that you are capable of more? That while you know you are talented and can achieve a lot, something is somehow still missing?

Then you are a creatrix. And it’s time to start living it.

I, too, felt this way as long as I can remember
And I didn’t know what I was missing.

I had friends, a partner, a rewarding job. I was an artist, an activist and created real change.

Yet, I also felt lonely, uncertain, sometimes hopeless and often stressed.

No matter what or how much I did, it never felt completely right or like I had arrived.

Something was always missing.
