An All-Natural Deodorant Recipe that Actually Works!

An ongoing experiment of mine has been to come up with an all-natural deodorant that actually works. By now you know I am extremely particular about the ingredients in my body care products. After many experiments with making an all-natural deodorant bar and many disappointing trials of natural commercial deodorants, I was still unable to find one that worked well and was practical to use. I am therefore very excited to share this recipe with you.

This is a spray-on all-natural deodorant that works incredibly well. It does not contain any harmful chemicals or ingredients known to be toxic. It also uses natural ingredients as its preservative. Toxin-free and effective is a win-win in my book!

It is an effective blend of antibacterial and antifungal ingredients combined with essential oils that are

For those of us who are tired of feeling self-conscious when wearing polyester clothing, I added a few ingredients designed to stop odors even when we wear polyester. Best of all, this can be easily sprayed on and does not require any elaborate application steps. It is also non-straining.

This recipe doesn’t use any products which are highly unusual, and it can be very easily made. I highly recommend it!

  • After two weeks, blend the water and hydrogen peroxide together in a separate glass jar.

Spray the deodorant onto clean armpits as needed. Please note this deodorant may sting a bit when sprayed onto freshly shaved armpits, but the sting disappears quickly.
