DIY Natural Deodorant that Works!

Non-Toxic Easy DIY Pit Paste

DIY Natural Deodorant


4 TBSP Baking soda
2 TBSP Bentonite Clay
4 TBSP Arrowroot powder
6 TBSP Coconut oil
Optional, 10 drops essential oil of your choice (I like sage, grapefruit or geranium)


  • Melt coconut oil using double boiler method; in a bowl over a pot of simmering water.

  • Put all of the powders in a clean glass jar (we use wide mouth masons from Canadian Tire).

  • Slowly add the oil to the jar until the mixture has the consistency of smooth peanut butter.

  • If using an EO, add and stir.

  • Let cool to room temperature to firm up to use.


Be patient with yourself as your body adjusts! Some people find that they are a little stinkier as their bodies purge the chemicals from the conventional deodorants they used before their non-toxic life.
