I’ve never used those two words in the same sentence.  Never.


homemade deodorant

…we started using this sugary deodorant.

Two simple ingredients mixed together.  Powdered sugar and coconut oil.  That’s it. And it works (even for my hubby!). Try it out for yourself.

This is also a great homemade option for those of you who have sensitive skin and are bothered by the baking soda that is used in most homemade versions.

I feel like instructions aren’t really warranted for this but for those who would like a little guidance…

Place a small amount of powdered sugar in a bowl and add melted coconut oil, a little at a time, until you reach your desired consistency. Lick mixing spoon before throwing it in the sink. 🙂

It’s really that easy. Go sugar yourself up!

  1. Ok… I’m intrigued enough to try it… at least if it doesn’t work for me I won’t have to throw it away. I can just eat it. Haha. 🙂

    I’ve been using a DIY deodorant with icing sugar in it for about a week now (mine has baking soda + arrowroot powder + essential oils)! I love it! You should look into adding some litsea cubeba (may chang) essential oil to your mix – it’s supposed to control excessive sweating and bacteria.
