Homemade Deodorant Spray for Stinky Pits
It seems like the biggest struggle when you go natural is finding a good deodorant that works. It definitely has been tough for me to find one that I love.
A while ago, I shared my simple homemade deodorant recipe for sensitive skin, and while I do love this recipe, I find that I have to apply it more than once a day. I’m pretty lazy so that wasn’t really working for me!
I also received some feedback and it turns out that not everyone loves applying a paste to their pits. Who knew!
A spray seemed like the obvious answer. I was just planning on using it to compliment my homemade deodorant paste, but now I find that on most days, it’s all I need.
I love how refreshing this spray feels on my pits (is that weird?) and it’s super easy to keep in your purse for those times when you need to freshen up.
Homemade Natural Deodorant Spray Ingredients
The rest of the ingredients are…wait for it…essential oils!
I found a mix of Rosemary, Frankincense and Lavender work great at keeping my pits nice and refreshed.
Lavender is antimicrobial and antibacterial, exactly what we need to keep our pits smelling fresh. Rosemary is antibacterial and will help to extend the life of our spray, keeping it good for weeks, even months! Frankincense (replace with Tea Tree if you can’t swing the big bucks for this one!) acts as an astringent and is king when it comes to killing bacteria.
How to Make your Natural Deodorant Spray
This one is pretty simple. In a small bowl whisk together:
- 1/4 cup Witch Hazel
- 1 tsp Vegetable Glycerin
- 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 5 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
- 5 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
Add the mixture to a 2-ounce spray bottle like this one.
Mission deodorant spray complete!
