Top Antibacterial Essential Oils for Deodorant:
- Tea tree
- Eucalyptus (great for men’s deodorant/can also add cedarwood)
Recipe #1 Deodorant Cream
6 tablespoons coconut oil
¼ cup baking soda
¼ cup arrowroot powder
6-10 drops of essential oils
Mix all ingredients together until well blended. It should resemble cake icing. Add to a glass jar.
Once it’s all blended together, you just need about 1/8 tsp per underarm.
Store in a cool/dry place.
Recipe #2 – Deodorant Cream/ Powder (This is my favorite and what I use!)
(2) glass jars
Jar 1: Add coconut oil (not fractionated), with essential oils above.
Jar 2: Add baking soda and arrowroot with 5 drops of any one essential oil listed above. (Arrowroot is good for absorption.)
Use your fingers to apply coconut oil blend to armpits. Dip the cotton pad into the powder mixture and dab on top of coconut oil.
