How to Make an Excellent Deodorant at Home

Photo by Dana Tentis

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!

Get Your Personal Wheel of Colours

The Wheel of Colours is a traditional tool to help us understand what we need or can share in certain situations.

We are all made up out of the same colours, but they are arranged uniquely in each person – which is why we need or can give different things in different moments.

If you’d like to find out what can support YOU when starting a project, or working with other people, to successfully finish something, to heal, to spark your creativity or what your unique gift is, that you bring to the world, then the Wheel of Colours will help you to see this and yourself more clearly and show you how to use these insights in practical ways.

It will also show you how you can listen to your inner truth and that of others, what your most important lesson is in life and what challenges you might have to overcome.

Once you’ve learned what you need to learn, you can start the wheel again, this time more smoothly.

In the past, people often only got these insights and realizations towards the end of their lives – but you don’t have to wait until then.

🌈 You have the power to create your reality.
