DIY Solid Deodorant with Essential Oils

DIY Solid Deodorant with Essential OilsWhen it comes to deodorant, two requirements people want are that it prevents perspiration as well as odor. BioSource Naturals went one step further by also creating a DIY solid deodorant with essential oils, making it natural and toxic-free.*

Some of the toxic ingredients found in common store-bought deodorant brands are aluminum compounds, parabens, triclosan, and artificial colors, to name just a few.

Our DIY solid deodorant with essential oils contains tea tree that has microbial properties and cuts down on the bacteria that causes odor.* It also contains Bandits Essential Oil Blend, which helps to neutralize odor and bacteria.*

Other ingredients also play a role in making this deodorant effective. Arrowroot keeps your armpits dry, while beeswax lends stiffness to the deodorant stick.* If you’re looking for extra odor-blasting powers, try adding a little baking soda! Some are sensitive, however, to baking soda, so heads up when using it.

DIY Solid Deodorant with Essential Oils

Ingredients

2 ¼ teaspoons shea butter or coconut oil
1 tablespoon grated beeswax
2 ½ tablespoons jojoba oil
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon baking soda (optional)
2 drops tea tree essential oil
2 drops bandits essential oil
Empty deodorant sticks

Directions

  1. Make a double boiler with a glass or stainless steel bowl. Melt beeswax and jojoba together. If you’re using coconut oil rather than shea butter, add the coconut oil now.
  2. Once melted, turn off the heat and stir in shea butter and arrowroot powder. Add essential oils.
  3. Quickly (and carefully) pour your mixture into the empty deodorant sticks. Let cool completely before closing the stick.
  4. Use for up to 4 months!

Be fresh and clean with your DIY deodorant, and use one of our luscious natural perfume fragrances made with essential oils to make you feel lively all day long!
