Submitted By:

If you can tolerate essential oils, herbal deodorants are wonderfully effective since so many of them have strong anti-bacterial properties.


1 oz beeswax
1 oz cocoa butter
1 oz coconut oil (this is solid)
1 oz castor oil
1 tsp grapefruit seed extract
1 tsp tea tree essential oil
2 tsp lavender or valencia orange essential oil
1 tsp rosemary essential oil
8 drops myrrh essential oil (optional)


Melt the oils and the beeswax in double boiler pan on top of stove, or directly on stove top on very lowest heat setting. Remove from heat and add the essential oils and stir. Pour into a new or used deodorant container and allow to solidify.
