DIY Homemade Deodorant Recipe

  • 1/3rd cup of extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons of grated beeswax
  • 2 tablespoons of shea butter
  • 1/3rd small cup of cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda
  • 20 drops of any essential oil (tea tree, frankincense, lavender or patchouli)
  • 1 deodorant container
  • 1 double boiler


  • Prepare the double boiler on a gas stove. Ensure the heat is low. 
  • First, put the beeswax and let it melt slow. 
  • After ten minutes, start putting the shea butter in the beeswax, carefully. 
  • When both the beeswax and shea butter are warming together, blend with a spade to avoid lumps. 
  • In a gap of five minutes, add the extra-virgin coconut oil in the right portion. 
  • When all the ingredients are completely liquidy in texture, then turn off the heat. 
  • Now, you have to add the baking soda and cornstarch. Use the spade to mix the powder completely in the melted wax, butter and oil. 
  • The last ingredient to add to your DIY homemade deodorant is any essential oil of your choice. Pick the flavour of your choice and don't put more than twenty drops of it. Excess of essential oil spoils the DIY homemade deodorant. 
  • In the molten state, pour the mixture into the deodorant container, seal it and leave it overnight. 
  • Next morning, your DIY homemade deodorant is ready for use.
