“I love my original homemade deodorant and have been using it for years.

Although my old recipe worked well for applying with the hands I didn’t like using it in stick form. I felt like it didn’t go on well and I couldn’t get enough of it on for it to work as well. I thought it would be fun to make a stick deodorant that went on really well, works, and is moisturizing.

So with some research and tweaking I came up with this…


  • 1 1/2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs shea butter
  • 1 heaping Tbs beeswax
  • 2 Tbs cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 2 Tbs baking soda
  • 10 drops essential oil ( I use tea tree, lavender, or lemon for their anti-bacterial properties)
  • Few drops of vitamin e (optional)
