Easy, Cheap, DIY Deodorant Using 2 Ingredients

Today, I want to show you an easy, cheap, and DIY Deodorant using only two ingredients. This is a simple 2 ingredient version that anyone can use.

You will need:

  1. An empty stick deodorant container (not a roll-on)
  2. 3 TBSP coconut oil (any brand will do)
  3. 1/4 cup baking soda (if you’re trying to avoid aluminum be sure to pick a brand without… Try Bob’s Red Mill)


  1. Melt the oil to just barely warm in a 150 degree oven. This will be warm but should not be too hot to handle. DO NOT OVERHEAT.
  2. Mix the oil and baking soda together.
  3. Add EOs if you want them. (Pick gentle essential oils that won’t burn delicate skin.)
  4. Scoop into your container by the spoonful.
  5. Tap the container on the counter to remove air bubbles.
  6. And rotate the plunger backwards, taking the mixture further into the container. Continue with steps 4, 5, & 6 until your container is full.
  7. Place the cap on it and put it in the fridge to set.


  • Apply lightly to avoid marking clothing.
  • Store in the refrigerator if needed during warm months.
  • You may need to warm the container slightly for the first use to allow the bar to move freely.
