Homemade deodorant, a straight-up re-link.

Do us a favor stinky, by Natalie Dee.

Every time I mention that I use homemade deodorant, I realize that I’ve never actually linked to the awesome internet recipe that I use.

So here it is, Angry Chicken’s homemade deodorant recipe, styled after Lush’s Aromacreme natural deodorant but less likely to cause a rash. This is the only deodorant recipe I’ve ever tried, and I’ve been using it happily for about a year. It’s cheap and it works and it gives me a better vibe than the “you stink” industry.

Our personal household version is a little simpler, like so:

5 Tablespoons shea butter
3 Tablespoons baking soda
2 Tablespoons corn starch
Essential Oil (ylang ylang, rosewood, nutmeg and cinnamon)

Melt, stir, pour into container(s), cool. Store extra in the fridge.

One thought on “Homemade deodorant, a straight-up re-link.

  1. How much essential oil do you put in? I made some and it works really great, but I’m getting a rash, dagnabbit. Maybe it’s the baking soda, but maybe I put in too much essential oil?
