I recently made my very own deodorant, I found the recipe via oh dear drea (a wonderful, honest blog from the point of view of a single mother). In order to not bore you with the how to’s, beyond which essential oil I used in the recipe (I used tea tree oil and lavender), you can find the recipe here. I will say this however, I have tried plenty of natural, aluminum free deodorants over the years, and have found many of them to be rather disappointing. Having to re-apply my deodorant multiple times throughout the day is both a waste of my time and money. So far, this deodorant has not let me down and it took me under five minutes to mix the ingredients together. A very good use of my time and energy, I think!
