My homemade deodorant recipe for sensitive skin without bicarbonate

Posted on

The deodorant recipe sounds good but i have read that baking soda can raise blood pressure, and also that anything in a white powder form could cause cancer. Wondering if there is an alternative

Recipes adapted from:


  • 10 drops Vitamin E
  • 15 drops tea tree oil
  • 30 gr shea butter
  • 1 tablespoon kaolin white clay
  • 2 teaspoon of zinc oxide
  • 30 gr sweet almond oil (first pressure)
  • 15 gr beeswax (not rafined)
  • 15 drops of another essential anti-bacterial oil (lavender, rosemary, grapefruit, lemon …)


  1. First, Clean and sterilize your equipment and deodorant container.
  2. Then, Melt the beeswax pellets on a low heat. Be careful not to boil the water so as not to damage the ingredients.
  3. Add the shea butter. Mix until the butter melts.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the sweet almond oil, white clay, zinc, Vitamin E and drops of essential oil.
  5. Mix vigorously, the preparation will gradually begin to become thicker. Pour at this point into the mold or deodorant stick.
  6. Let it harden for at least 2 hours.
