I found a site that I think is really good. I wanted to share it with EVERYONE! Check it out! Lots of information, economical recipes, homemade mixes, etc. This I was particularly interested in; especially due to the store-bought links to breast cancer.

Makes 1 stick of deoderant
5 Min
10 Min


  • 4 Tbsp
    coconut oil
  • 12
    drops of lavender essential oil (or other scented essential oil (must be essential oil!)
  • 3
    drops of vitamin e ((or the contents of 1 vitamin e capsule, just prick it with a needle & squeeze)
  • 2 Tbsp
    baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp
    corn starch or arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsp
    grated beeswax or beeswax pellets
  • 1
    empty deoderant container

How to Make NO SECRETS Homemade Deoderant


  1. In a small saucepan combing the coconut oil and beeswax over very low heat, alternatively you can use a double boiler, but don't use the microwave for this one. The coconut oil will melt quickly, the beeswax will take a few moments.
    Remove from heat, cool slightly, and stir in baking soda, cornstarch, vitamin E and lavender essential oil. It is imperative that you use True Essential oil and NOT a fragrance oil. The lavender offers antibacterial properties in addition to a great scent. The beeswax will help your finished product stay firm in the container. The vitamin E is a natural preservative.
  2. Keep in mind when using your homemade deodorant that there is an adjustment period as your body detoxifies. About a week after you begin using the product you may notice a stronger odor as your sweat glands finally purge the chemical mess that has built up! Just reapply your homemade deodorant if needed. A small number of people may have sensitivities to baking soda, if you know you have a sensitivity, you can use substitute Cornstarch in it's place.
  3. Other Scent Choices: First, let me start by saying that the scent of this homemade deodorant is VERY Light. I tested this thoroughly by showering, applying, then running 3 miles in 90+ degree weather in the South. Not only did it work fabulous, it didn't have a heavy perfume"y" stench like commercial deodorants tend to have. Here are some additional scent choices:
    Rosemary Essential Oil
    Cloves Essential Oil (For Men)
    Lime Essential Oil (Men)
