    I use a simple spray that works wonders.
    I used to use Antiperspirants (yes I know , yikes) … then I learned about aluminum.
    Also not keen on the stuff in normal soaps so leads me to …
    Dr. Bronner’s Castille Soap.
    Use that stuff for everything (not usually full strength).
    Deodorant …
    (1 part) ETHYL Alcohol (NOT Isopropyl) or Witch Hazel
    (1 part) Distilled water
    (Half part) Dr Bronner (any scent)
    (10 drops) TeaTree Oil
    (5-10 drops) Essential oils to taste / scent ( lavender, sandalwood, etc )
    Put it in a spray bottle (like the ones in the travel section)
    Shake before each use .

    Warning: Side Tangent : I use it as shampoo, body wash, part of toothpaste, washing dishes, etc … The stuff is amazing.
    I think the part I like most is even if you do not get it all off your skin, it NOT drying or damaging . All made of Oils and Glycerin .
    /Side Tangent complete.

    I started making my own deodorant over a year ago… and never had any problems with itching, skin darkening, or odor… but my husband never used it (itching) and I found I felt “soggy” on warm Texas days… not smelly at all but definite wetness. Not a great feeling. I tried replacing some of the liquid oil in the recipe with honey. (I read about honey being used in the Civil War as an anti-bacterial ointment.) I thought I’d give it a try and MAN, what a difference! It helps keep me dry even during hot summer days. I still haven’t found a good recipe for my husband… though I just mixed up the calendula oil infusion and will try it in a few weeks when it’s ready. Thanks for continuing to work on a formula! I’ll let you know if it works…

    Thank you for this recipe, I can’t wait to try it. I have recently made and used the basic recipe that just calls for coconut oil, cornstarch and baking powder, but after several days use I started developing sore, swollen bumps under my arms similar to very large pimples. The swelling feels like a hard knot under the skin. In your experience would that be caused by the baking soda or cornstarch? Are either known to clog pores or cause irritation of that kind? Thanks in advance for your consideration of my question.

    If you want antimicrobial you should use oil of clove and tea tree oil.

    Note, when it comes to essential oils, NEVER put it on your skin unless they are specifically marked for external and/or internal use. To be blunt, cheap aeromatic essential oils are made via chemical extraction methods that can be TOXIC if used externally and/or internally. In fact, some of those cheap aeromatic essential oils can cause allergic reactions or TOXIC effects slowly over time.

    For anyone who has tried this, how is it for odor protection? I made the switch to homemade deodorant and ended up ditching it after a few months because no matter what I tried, the odor protection wasn’t very good. I’m a pitta, so I sweat a decent amount. I’d like to make some sort of homemade deodorant, but I’m not sure what to try. Thanks!
