This is a simple and easy to make chemical free deodorant recipe.

It is free of synthetics and toxic chemicals such as aluminum and parabens, which have shown detrimental health effects.

You control ingredients in this chemical free deodorant, so you know exactly what is in it.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in this chemical free deodorant recipe.

Baking soda:
It helps neutralize body odors and does not contain any harsh chemicals.

Coconut oil:
It helps moisturize skin, and due to its antibacterial properties helps kill odor-causing bacteria. It is the perfect addition to this chemical free deodorant recipe.

Lemons:
The acids in lemons have antibacterial properties, which will help get rid of odors.

Mix the following ingredients in a blender and put in a BPA-free jar:

6 tablespoons of coconut oil (must be soft or at room temperature)
4 tbsps of cornstarch
10 drops of lemon essential oil
4 tbsps of baking soda
Make sure ingredients are organic
Place in fridge to harden and keep refrigerated

  4. What are the directions for application to the skin? Do you have to rub it in once it’s been hardened in the fridge or can it be used in a spray like normal deodorant?

    Thanks for sharing this idea, will be trying it tomorrow. Want all chemicals out of my bodily intake by 2016, this will help in that 🙂
