Natural Deoderant Recipes

Here are some natural deodorant recipe and alternatives I have found in my recent google searches.  These are recipes that I have found, but have not used, so if you try, please share.  Also, share your successful recipes or store bought product reviews as well.  The search for a natural deodorant, that works for you can be hard, so I am definitely open to suggestions.

 I am currently using Thai Crystals deodorant spray and I think I like, but I don't like it as a refresher during the day because it's a spray and gets clothes wet.  I have also tried the Crystal rock, but I don't like this at all because it doesn't work for me.  I wonder if it's because the sticks are made of ammonium alum and the sprays are made with potassium alum.  In my brief research of the two, I did not find any conclusive info about the difference other than formulation results; solid vs liquid.  Anyhoo, here are some recipes that I have found and might try soon.  I am intrigued by the rose spray and vodka spray ( Joan Rivers secret)

Magnesium oil (I'm still confused about this one for a few reasons)

Rose Deodorant Spray
  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp rosewater ( use a different hydrosol)

Vodka and Distilled Water ( add EO's to make herbal spray)
  • 2/3 Water
  • 1/3 Vodka

  ( You can change the amount of baking soda depending on your skins reaction, can be too strong for some)

Baking Soda & Cornstarch Powder ( Can add EO's)
  • 1/4 cup of Baking Soda
  • 1/4 cup of Cornstarch/ Arrowroot Powder

Baking Cornstarch and Coconut Oil  ( Use other oils/butter combos and/or beeswax for this recipe too)
  • 5-6 Tbsp. of Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup of Baking Soda
  • 1/4 cup of Cornstarch/ Arrowroot Powder
  • Essential oils (optional)
Alcohol/ Antibacterial Wipes ( I read that someone used alcohol wipes as a refresher)
