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!

The three Elements of well-being:

Physical Well-being // Body

To fulfil our physiological needs, we need enough sleep, good food and enough exercise.

No matter what we want to achieve, we need to know how to best take care of our bodies.

The last years have brought up so much new research to help us with learning how to take very good care of ourselves and our loved ones with minimal effort. Let's get you started!

Mental Well-being // Mind

Our mental well-being is strongly linked to our physical well-being and vice versa.

Once we know how to take really good care of our bodies, we can deepen our positive relationship with ourselves mentally as well.

We create the world we experience - if we want to change our experience, we need to change the way we interact with the world and to act differently we change our thinking 🙂 It's fun!

Relational Well-being // Soul

Change always starts with ourselves, and eventually brings us to being able to be fully present in community.

I don't believe in inner work, I practice and teach inner nourishing and letting go. Becoming quiet enough to hear what our inner knowing tells us.

So, we can safely, lovingly and joyfully be with ourselves others and inspire and uplift.

Our world needs you.

Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

How can I 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 fiercely 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.

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