Quick And Gentle Cream Deodorant

 This recipe is simple, budget-friendly, effective, and chemicals free. People who prefer an effective but harmless deodorant in a cream base will appreciate having this recipe handy.

Keep in mind that this is NOT an antiperspirant, which is actually a good thing because sweating is one of the ways your body naturally detoxes.

Unlike many store bought deodorants that mask odor and clog your pores to keep the sweat from coming out (while your body keeps trying to detoxify), this Gentle Cream Deodorant will not block your sweat and will not leave “pit stain” on your favorite shirt! It will keep you smelling fresh for about 12 to 24 hours or until you shower it off.

Give this homemade natural cream deodorant recipe a try and let me know if it works for you too.



Baking Soda

1 t.

Talc or Corn Starch (or a mix of both)

2 t.

Gentle Cream or Herbal Ointment

2 t.

Optional: Tea tree, and Lavender Essential Oils

2 - 3 drops each
  • In a small pot, mix Baking Soda, Talc/Corn Starch, Gentle Cream together and heat over very low heat, stirring until a smooth cream forms.
  • Let it cool then add the essential oils, mixing thoroughly.
  • Pour into a small sterile ointment jar, and apply to clean underarms as needed.

This recipe is for a small amount to be used quickly. If you want to produce it in larger batches, you will have to look at antioxidants and preservatives to give it a shelf life of up to two years.
