Have you made Coconut Lime Deodorant yet?
It’s 4 ingredients. It’s all natural. It takes less than 5 minutes to make. And it really works!
(For real, it keeps you fresh smelling on hot, humid days. Even men use it.)
I love giving in person workshops. But I realize it’s just not possible for everyone to come to London for a workshop (although that would be fun, wouldn’t it?) So I’m experimenting with video tutorials and online workshops to get a little of that warm-fuzzy-workshop feeling at home!
For this first video tutorial, I’m starting with the most popular recipe on my site (and one of the easiest): coconut lime deodorant.

Substitutions & Troubleshooting:
- Don’t like coconut scent? Use deodorized coconut oil.
- Love coconut scent? Use raw coconut oil which should have a nice strong coconut smell!
- Don’t like lime? Use any essential oil you have (lavender, geranium, rose etc.), or leave it out altogether!
- Need it stronger? (please try it as-is first, before changing the recipe) – add more baking soda.
- Does it irritate your underarms? Use less baking soda, and more arrowroot powder.
- Is the baking soda too ‘scratchy’? I have better luck with baking soda purchased in the baking aisle, rather than the kind sold for cosmetic use. It seems to be softer!
- Deodorant gone hard? That’s ok, just scoop a little out with your fingernail and it will melt when it touches your skin.
- Deodorant melted? Just pop it in the fridge and it will reharden. You’ll probably want to give it a stir while it’s in the fridge to blend in the powders again.
