Homemade Deodorant

Product Information

I don’t know about you but I’m not comfortable putting chemicals on my body, especially commercial deodorant – so I make my own. The recipe varies but here are the base ingredients, and you’ll need a 50ml spray bottle:

  • rose water – 15ml
  • apple cider vinegar – 15ml
  • witch hazel – 10ml
  • magnesium oil – 5ml
  • aloe vera – 2g
  • Himalayan salt – a pinch
  • essential oils – 20 drops

Any 50ml bottle with a spray nozzle works well – I use a blue glass bottle. Shake well.
Note that I tend not to measure out the ingredients exactly. Instead, I visually measure as I fill the bottle.
Essential oils I like to use include: lavender, thyme, sage, tea tree, lemon eucalyptus, grapefruit.

Do you have a homemade deodorant you like to make? Is it effective?
