How to Make Healthy All Natural Deodorant – DIY Organics

In this video I’m going to show you easy way to make and all natural homemade deodorant. let’s talk first about why somebody would want to make their own deodorant. There is so much evidence now showing the problem and carcinogenic ingredients in regular
deodorants what most people don’t know is even in
the so-called healthy deodorants that don’t have aluminum and parabens in them, there are still so many
problematic ingredients that you want to avoid deodorants and antiperspirants are now being associated with higher rate of breast cancer and prostate cancer and the reason that is is because
when we’re sweating we’re eliminating toxins from our body when you use antiperspirant your blocking the ability for your body to eliminate these
toxins the reason these are being blocked is
because of aluminum aluminum itself is linked to Alzheimer’s and breast cancer the next ingredient you
want to avoid are parabens. Paraben are synthetic
preservatives Paraben exposure has been linked to birth
defects and organ toxicity and their suspected to disrupt hormone
balance this can lead to hormonal cancers including breast cancer now the Center for Disease Control
recently did a study in a hundred random urine samples they
found that all 100 of them had parabens in them, and it’s not just because deodorant is also in make up and so many other things but the point is how easily parabens and other
ingredients are absorbed through your skin. Anything you put on your skin gets absorbed directly into your bloodstream as oppose eating it, where it goes through
your digestive system first. So often its worst to put anything
on your skin that’s bad for you, then it is to eat it. For this reason you wanna only put
things on your skin like your natural deodorant that are edible. The next ingredient you
want avoid is propylene glycol. Now even though all these healthy
deodorants have no aluminum and no parabens in them often the first ingredient they have
is this propylene glycol What this is, is an antifreeze and coolant, and its used in motor oil it’s slick so it’s used as a cheap way to
make your deodorant more easily applicaple to the skin now in
small amounts arguably it’s not bad for you but in large
amounts is been proven to me problems my central
nervous system as well as your heart and your liver
next you have fragrances which are bad amongst themselves but
the fragrances are legal way of hiding hundreds of
chemicals including thalates. These are used to create a better consistency that they’ve been
linked to birth defects and other problems. Next we want to avoid is triclosan Triclosan is used because of its
anti-bacterial and anti-odor properties the problem is it kills all you gut
bacteria. Leaving you more open to sickness and disease and digestive problems is classified as a
pesticide by the FDA and is a probable carcinogen by the EPA. In addition to these few ingredients that I mentioned
there are so many other ingredients on a label of regular deodorants and the so called healthy deodorants, that you really want to avoid
mainly because they’re not anything that you will eat
so you don’t wanna put them on your skin as I was saying earlier all the ingredients that we’re going to use in our deodorant we’re going to make you can actually ingest and are edible and they’re healthy for you as well let’s talk about what we want to put in
our deodorant. now to begin with when your skin the first protective measure that it has
is a fatty acid called sebum, and what this sebum does is it prevents infection and so many other bacteria from getting not only on your skin but into your blood stream. What happens when we shower and we use soap we wash that sebum off. We want to replace that with a similar oil that’s going to be
beneficial to you and that is coconut oil it’s also
antibacterial you always wanna look for organic unrefined virgin and cold pressed. Other ingredients that we want to use to help with the consistency is shea butter. this is also a great moisturizer in addition to that we’re going to use baking soda this has cleansing and antibacterial
properties but it also absorbs sweat if you have irritation from this deodorant, you’re going to want to use less of the is the baking soda another thing that we
use in there is arrow root power. This also absorbs sweat and then you want to put in some
essential oils this helps the fight bacteria and also gives it a great smell. So these ingredients alone for about twenty five dollars you can
have mabye two years of deodorant not only is it way better for you and
the environment is also way more economical and actually works better in my opinion you
don’t want to make this your cell in the blog below I have a couple of deodorants that I like The problem is they are just a little bit expensive, especially compared to what we doing here now if you want to take this a step
further there’s a few ingredients that you can add to this that are actually
really healthy for your skin the first one is coco butter, this has a
great consistency all in this together and has a high
melting point so it’s important add this in the summer and it is great for your skin. next we’re going to use beeswax because beeswax also helps that consistency and it’s also great for your skin I also
like to use bentonite clay because it’s so healthy for your skin it helps with allergies, excema, cuts, rash and acne and its often used as a mud mask warning with bentonite clays is if you use too much that it might stain light-colored clothing so you don’t wanna go with a whole lot of that. I also like to use a Vitamin E oil. couple drops of that because it’s
very good for your skin protects your skin and helps to repair it and prevents premature aging something else I like to put in there is
a capsule full of probiotic power. I do this because it provides good bacteria for your skin and this helps to fight off infection especially if you’re cut or something like underneath your arms from shaving. to make enough for one person in a typical container like this to start mix up the powders. Start with 2
tablespoons of arrow root powder 1 tablespoon of baking soda, if you decide to add the bentonite clay add a half of tablespoon of that. Next in a double boiler or small pan like this. Combine 1 tablespoon of coco butter a tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon shea butter 1 tablespoon of beeswax. if you leave any of those ingredients out just use equal parts have all those, equalling 4 tablespoons melt those at a low to medium temperature until it liquid then once melted together let it sit for a few minutes until the consistency becomes that of putty and mix it with your powders add a quarter teaspoon of vitamin e oil then add about 15 drops of essential oils I use peppermint, tea tree, and lavender
then add one or two capsules of probiotics now there are a couple different ways you can use this, you can put it in a small glass container and here have it in your bathroom. you just take it off with your fingers and just wipe it on yourself like regular deodorant or you can save your old deodorant containers and just pour them right into their then put it in the refrigerator to
solidify totally after an hour or so you take it out and you may have to twist the containers a bit to get the deodorant sticking to the sides so can be turned
up. More videos on health and wellness can be seen at

  4. Thank you!! Finally someone who is competently & clearly explaining about the harmful chemicals in products with detail!

  5. I'm trying to save my family's life. I've gone vegan 3 years ago for 1 year and all medical issues disappeared than it happened after I had my meant of clarity my ITALIAN FAMILY DRAGGED ME BACK DOWN bit I returned even more dedicated so I'm going to use you and your great attitude plus that female attraction should work. I'm learning to stop being militant my character flaw and be silent and let all my YouTube connections work for me. PEACE

  6. You know what's sad you should have 2 million views but one life saved at a time plus my psychic ability sent me here. I guess 3 months of detoxing the pineal is working because in feeling the life energy big time in my chest when following all this clean living

  7. great video! what are some deordorants that I can use if i don't want to make it on my own

  8. love your video, very informative. Thank you

  9. Can I use the recipe without arrowroot powder? I currently don't have it here at home!

  10. I did it!!! I made 6 containers of deodorant and three samples for family and friends to try.  I gathered up all the deodorant I had here at home dumped out the contents, cleaned the containers and added the toxin free goodness.  I'll never use store bought deodorant again.  Thank youuuuuu:)

  11. oh so sweet n informative <3

  12. Oh I wasn't expecting to see you here. Shirt on today I see (pout) Thanks once again for the excellent info 🙂

  13. I read that bentonite clay contains amounts of lead and aluminum. Doesn't that kind defeat the purpose?

  14. Hi! Very nice video! Can I use homemade coconut oil which is liquid instead of bying one from stores??

  15. Thank you! But is there any substitute for coconut oil to use in the deo??

  16. I've been making my own homemade deodorant for a couple of years now and love it however, I've recently had trouble with the baking soda causing a small itchy redness under my arms. So I've eliminated it from the recipe and replaced it with bentonite clay powder. This isn't quite as effective as baking soda on odor but it's the best I have come up with as an alternative. I did experience some staining on my darker t-shirts from the clay but discovered that a few drops of liquid dish detergent applied with a wet toothbrush, before laundering, gets the stains out very well. Any ideas on another odor fighing ingredient to replace the baking soda??

  17. Mr. Farr have you experience any discoloration within the pit area? I made it without the clay and have had discoloration of the skin and hair. Just wanted to know was I the only one?

  18. Although I have had some small setbacks it works great, even helping those who had serious pit problems! 

  19. thank you, especially for the informative intro

  20. Hello, I've made my own with just coconut oil, arrowroot powder and baking soda with peppermint EO and tea tree I love it but it does irritate my armpits it turns red and swollen and itchy.  I'm going to try your way but with a little but of baking soda this time thanks for the video

  21. Nice video! I just made a video showing the serious health risks with Deodorants containing Aluminium. Check it out on my channel!

  22. Awesome!  I gotta try this!

  23. This was great! I just made a peppermint natural deodorant 😁😁😁

  24. Thank you for this! Super helpful!

  25. This is great! I have been trying to figure out how to solidify my deodorant and beeswax is the answer. Thanks!

  26. Is there a way to add aloe to this and would that be beneficial?

  27. Hi, I've used your recipe, and I'm really happy with it.  🙂 Do you know how I would go about making a vegan batch?  I'm thinking candelilla wax, but not sure if the ratio would be the same. Any thoughts?

  28. I will like to bay your deodorant please how can I get it? Thanks.

  29. Very nice and very informative video. I am already into organic and natural products and I wonder if using lemon alone after bathing will do the work?

  30. I really enjoy this video thank you!

  31. Thank you! Very informative and instructions for making were very easy to follow. Keep up the good work.

  32. Thanks for this great video, I have made some and been using for almost 2 weeks and its amazing, however I have now got red itchy under arms from it and was wondering if it's likely to be the baking soda? A few people have said it could be that, can I omit it altogether or substitute with something else?

  33. very informative! thanks

  34. Hello TheArtofUnity, is it possible I can add the juice of lemon to this recipe? My thoughts is that it would help lighten the dark areas in the armpit.

  35. Do you have to keep it refrigerated in order to maintain the solidification?

  36. Never use metal objects when using clay powders. The metals react with the clay negatively and cause the clays to become ineffective.

  37. The most informative tutorial in deodorant I've seen so far!! I 'm spreading the word. I've pinned it on my pinerest "MIsArt". By far you video is liked & repinned more than any of my other pins. Also I made quite a few from your recipe which I use and made for other people! Thank you Bill Farr.

  38. Thank you for educating as. Very informative

  39. ion silvers in nivea?

  40. What happens if you use just baking soda and coconut oil and freeze it? Would that be ok?

  41. will this melt if kept out of the fridge

  42. When I was trying to decide on which oil, like peppermint, tea tree etc. They had warning label, that made me nervous.

  43. Bentonite clay contain aluminium.

  44. Baking Soda is bad for your skin!!


  46. skip almost whole video to actually get to the recipe @6:10 out of an 8 min video…. im pretty sure the reason why people are looking at your video is because they already know the crap in deodorant is bad for you… hence why they are looking for a way to make their own. you could have at least been like "hey, here is a link to a DIFFERENT video telling you why the stuff from the store is bad… now onto the home made stuff"

  47. I used peppermint, rosemary, and grapefruit essential oils. It smells great in the container, but when applied to armpit and some activity, it smells bad. The sweat bust change the chemistry of it, I wonder if it could be is the grapefruit oil? Don't you find when you use darker oils such as cocoa and beeswax, ones clothes are more stained. Than if you'd only stick to white ingredients such as the coconut oil.

  48. Great video, I use plain alcohol with any sheets and talc. Works great.
    I wonder if I sprayed my clothes with aluminum particles if it would shield the body from dangerous EMF radiation or would it do the otherwise, like resonating with it, making more susceptible to electromagnetic radiation emitted by the cellphone towers.


  50. Recipe starts at 6:24

  51. I was hoping to find video like this because deodorant from supermarket is toxic. Us men tend not to shave under our arms but ladies often do so.  This is important because when women shave under their arms and use shop bought deodorant the razor makes small scratches that the toxic deodorant enters which maybe carcogenic. There is also research about wearing a bra as they can effect circulation so I heard. Mammograms and Radiation I saw are also carcogenic.

  52. what can i use instead of arrowroot powder?

  53. Is this safe for breastfeeding moms

  54. OK thanks hey I haven't been using any deodorants for a long time me now, was thinking of making my own but wasn't sure about the breastfeeding bit 🙋

  55. Thanks chum and keep up the good work hey really enjoy the videos very informative.

    What's your view on ice guard. Or Natural crystal deodorant the salt crystal rock you roll on

  56. Cool stuff chum let's all try stay toxin and cancer free
    You need to share all this on Facebook

  57. Will share your video

  58. Awesome stuff chum. it's so sad tho when you think about it we actually pay for a slow death insurance by buying all these toxic products😨

  59. himalayan salt/rock salt (been there in khewra mines very energising for all your bodies). should be a very good ingredient anti bacterial anti fungal.helps with the smell essentially its just the bacteria that makes the smell.powder that up in your mixture.or just buy a small sized and apply after shower.we all gots pieces of a holding a couple more haha

  60. I heard coconut oil stains and ruins clothes

  61. Love Love this video best one I have seen for making deodorant, thank you for sharing.

  62. Aluminum is so harmful in deodorants. If you are a woman stay away from it. It has been linked to breast cancer and now Alzheimer. I personally like a new deodorant called Granny's Natural Deodorant. Not in stores yet but on their website. It's creamy and is the only one that doesn't break me out. It holds me and I'm very active.

  63. this was very helpful thank you so much!

  64. Any one out there knows of a body soap that is not harmful, I just found out that Dove body soap I used have some of these ingredients :O(
    Or can you make body soap? Thanks in advance!

  65. Thanks brother, this recipe is really awesome I am sure it works like a charm but also pretty complex and expensive. I want to share with you my simple recipe: it is just baking soda, lavender oil (antibacterial), teatree oil(antiseptic), st.john's worth oil (astringent). You use 3-4 drop each oil for 2-3 tablespoon baking soda. It is good to add everything in a tiny jar with lid, because when you put all ingredients, you can shake it for proper mix. When you want to use it, wet your finger and dip to the powder and apply a bit to your armpit. This almost protect you for 24 hours. Before that, I tried every brand of deodorant but it didnt help, baking soda is the best 😀 Love you!

  66. This video was amazing….thank you for all the great information!

  67. I heard vitamin E is GMO–so be careful which one you use–right ?

  68. Thanks for the awesome descriptions of the ingredients. I started out with the major 3, Coconut oil, soda and arrowroot powder. Now, I am up to about 7 ingredients… lol

  69. I have heard you can use zinc oxide powder (as long as it is non-nano)–do you think this would be okay too?

  70. Hi, thank you for such a great informative video. I made the deodorant and love that it makes me feel clean and zero smell. I did add less baking soda than suggested and I used lavender, frankincense, a little of clove and ginger. It is now a week into using it daily that I just realized my underarm has turned brownish, not very attractive. Any idea what is causing it? or I should be using less of?

  71. Thank you for the very nice explaining video. I found your video so that my 14-year-old son can learn the danger of chemicals in deodorants that he likes to use. I myself make similar deodorant and I make soap as well. My teenagers use my soaps but they think my deodorant is not good enough as all their friends use the commercial brands with strong fragrance.

  72. I love Bentonite clay I use it for my hair my face and drink it when I'm not feeling good I can wait to try it for this

  73. what is the smell and also how long it last a day? what is the expiry date?

  74. Plz help someone. I only jus realised that I put baking powder instead of baking soda. Can I still use the deodorant? Thx.

  75. will soy wax work as well as bees wax?

  76. I know this is old, but can you post a measurements and ingredients for this?

  77. Does this recipe stain clothes?

  78. Survivor of Breast cancer… removal of 2 lymph nodes … estrogen positive cancer diagnosis… switched to diy clay and magnesium oil deodorant!

  79. I hate cooking much less mixing up deodorant. I found a new alternative. Lume deodorant, they have a youtube site too. all natural, no aluminum and no baking soda. and they have some kind of bunny award for not hurting animals. they list their ingredients and it was developed by a doctor, not a big company. less messy to order online too. it lasts two days for me and i am a stinky guy living in Texas

  80. For a white guy your skin looks great!

  81. how important is the arrowroot powder? what can use to replace it?

  82. Oooh fabulous good work! Question, does the deo stick melt during high temperatures? Can I travel with it?

  83. I've discovered that simply applying hair spray under the arms really works.

  84. Arrow Root is the best for deodorant, do not use baking soda

  85. And the recipe please.
