Homemade Deodorant Recipe – Lavender Scented Homemade Deodorant

I am excited to try this recipe. I have tried others however, it seemed to always feel sticky not long after applying. I also live in Texas, so you know how the heat can be. I really like that I can get away from the aluminium that is in deodorants. I was told by dr.’s that can cause breast cancer & I have already had to have two places checked out. I’m not willing to risk my health any longer. This is my next “in the kitchen” non-food project. 

This is a wonderful recipe! It took me a long time to find a “natural” store bought deodorant that worked for me, but to be completely honest, I never really loved it. It worked well, but it was a very hard stick deodorant and rough on the skin when applying. This recipe not only banishes odor (yeah!) but it feels so good putting it on in the morning. And I think that anything you have to put on everyday, should make you feel great putting it on everyday!

When I first began delving into making herbal bath and beauty products myself many years ago, it all started with homemade herbal deodorant. It’s the perfect beginner recipe for DIY beauty products, mainly because it’s simple to make, but also because it’s good for your health. The best part is that this homemade deodorant recipe really works! 

That’s where this recipe is different, as it adds beeswax and shea butter to make the whole thing a thicker consistency so that it will hold up in an actual deodorant container or in a half circle mold, making for much easier application. 

Lavender are excellent for making herbal deodorant. Lavender is often used in skin care products due to germ fighting benefits and its pleasing scent. Lavender is amazing in that it has some natural antiperspirant properties. 

The first step in this recipe is to make an infused herbal oil with lavender or any other herbs of your choice. 

You will need: 
  • 2 heaping tablespoons beeswax pellets
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter
  • 7 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 3-5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • Empty Deodorant Tubes or 4 oz Jelly Jars
  • ½ tsp Vitamin E Oil or 4 Vitamin E Capsules
  • 3 heaping tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
Directions: 
  1. First add the coconut oil, beeswax pellets, and Shea butter into a medium saucepan and melt it slowly over low heat. Make certain you stir it often since it can burn quickly. The beeswax will take a bit longer than the other ingredients to melt so keep that in mind.(Tip: you can make a double boiler with a smaller pot, bowl, or a glass Pyrex measuring cup over an inch or so of simmering water. If you use glass Pyrex, put something in the bottom of the pot that it can rest on, such as a canning jar lid). 
  2. Then Once the ingredients are melted, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the baking soda and corn starch. Be sure you mix well using either a fork or a wire whisk. Like any recipe that contains corn starch, it will thicken as it begins to cool. That is perfectly normal and actually what you’re aiming for. Keep stirring for a minute or two to thoroughly combine. The mixture will begin to thicken slightly.(Homemade deodorant will last 3-6 months in a airtight container.) 
  3. Allow your lavender scented homemade deodorant to cool slightly then add both essential oils and the Vitamin E oil and stir to evenly distribute the oils throughout the mixture. Don’t wait too long to add them since it will be difficult to stir them into the homemade deodorant, but you shouldn’t add them too soon either. Heat is one of the top enemies of essential oils and adding them too soon will cause them to get too hot and lose their properties. 
  4. Once you’ve added the oils, your lavender scented homemade deodorant is done! While it’s still warm, pour it into a 4 oz jelly jar or empty deodorant tube. If you want to spread it when you use it, use the jelly jar. If you would rather apply it like a conventional deodorant, use the empty deodorant tube. 
This deodorant changes consistency depending on the temperature. In cold climates, it can we pretty hard to get out. If that’s the case for you, I recommend storing it by the shower and allowing the steam to warm it before applying. If you live in a warm climate and the deodorant is too liquidy, you can store it in a cooler pantry to thicken it up.apply as you would any other deodorant and enjoy!
