Natural deodorants are better because most household deodorants contain a long list of chemicals that cause damage to your health and the environment...

Most shop-bought deodorant comes packaged in aluminium. Aluminium has been linked to the cause of miscarriages, autism, and Alzheimer's. It's also associated with breast cancer as it can interfere with a woman's oestrogen.  

Although more research is needed to confirm exact causes and association, aluminium is a toxic element. That isn't worth the risk.

Another con to buying branded deodorant, is that even a lot of natural deodorants seem to come in plastic packaging! 

As a product you’re using every day, this contributes unnecessarily to landfill. 

So in this article, I'm going to share a super simple recipe that you can make at home. I'll also link you to our favorite natural deodorant if D.I.Y isn't your thing.



  • 1/2 cup organic coconut oil, melted
  • 25-30 drops of essential oil (we love a mix of orange, lemon, lavender, tea, tree, eucalyptus, and peppermint)
  • 1/4 cup baking soda


  • Mix the essential oils with the melted coconut oil
  • Add the baking soda and stir until smooth
  • Pour into an airtight container or container

If you'd prefer to buy a natural, non-toxic, and aluminium-free deodorant... then you can always check out our natural deodorant by Humby Organics which comes in eco friendly, kraft packaging.
