(NaturalNews) If you're like me, you have tried many natural deodorants. Many of them that claim to be natural are not natural and/or are not healthy. Most of them do not work. In fact, I've only come across a few that worked well, and they didn't last very long.

These days I don't need it. The healthier I eat, the less body order I have. In fact, if I do stink, I know exactly what I ate to cause it. A healthy body with a balanced inner eco-system (a healthy gut) doesn't exude a foul body odor.

On the other hand, nobody's perfect. It's good to have deodorant for the day that follows a night on the town, one with a few drinks, a restaurant, etc.

The best deodorant I ever used, I made at home. It still doesn't last too terribly long; for me, it works for about 4 hours. But it's certainly my favorite, out of the many I've tried.

All Natural Deodorant Recipe DIY

  • 5 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil
  • 5 tablespoons pure cocoa butter (no additives)
  • 3 tablespoons of aloe vera juice
  • 1/4 cup baking soda and/or arrowroot (arrowroot addition is thanks to commenter "HadDone")
  • 1/4 cup witch hazel extract
  • 4 drops essential peppermint oil or tea tree oil
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil
Heat the coconut oil and the cocoa butter until they are liquid. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or a food processor until well blended. Place into a container (preferably glass) and refrigerate overnight.

There are a lot of ways you can adjust this recipe. If you want a powder deodorant, you can decrease the amount of liquid ingredients and increase the baking soda. Some people use cornstarch, but cornstarch feeds yeast. I avoid it.

You can make a roll-on liquid, or even a spray deodorant, by using less coconut oil and less cocoa butter, leaving out the baking soda, and adding more aloe vera juice (up to ? a cup) and more witch hazel extract (as needed to reach the right consistency).

If you want to make a great stick deodorant, add more cocoa butter (the real, pure, super thick cocoa butter, not the creamy stuff with the additives) to the original recipe. You can press it into an old deodorant container.

Feel free to experiment with essential oils for fragrance. For a masculine woodsy scent, try oil of oregano, which also adds to the odor protection due to its anti-bacterial properties. Citrus oils, peppermint, or floral fragrances could be added.

Speaking of essential oils, if you ever find yourself smelling foul and don't have deodorant lying around, essential oils are wonderful for killing the bacteria and fungi on our skin that causes odor. I tend to keep peppermint oil on hand at all times; it's good for so much!

Remember that you can eliminate most of your body odor by eating a truly healthy diet. One other significant factor is your choice of soap. Get rid of conventional soap and change to organic. Once the bacteria on your skin are back in balance, you will notice your body odor will be considerably reduced. Don't get me wrong, you'll still smell like a human, but I am often asked what fragrance I am wearing, when I am wearing nothing at all.

If you have body odor, and you are looking to balance your gut microbes, we recommend The Fascinating Bacteria in our Gut, and How to Cure Candida. If you need more information about what constitutes a healthy diet, we recommend 80% Raw Food Diet.
