Yet another DIY deodorant but oh what a luxuriously, healthy one!  This is the tried and true blend that I've settled in with beautifully.  A magnesium-rich version that's enhanced with biochemistry friendly pure essential oils.  Simple, clean, chemical free and, so easy! In my opinion, no one should buy and use commercial deodorant ever again unless it's free of all chemicals.  If you've followed my blog you know that I've posted at least 3 to 4 different homemade versions of deodorant because we need options! What works for me may not work for you and vice versa. The important thing is to keep trying, finding your happy place with DIY deodorant is well worth the effort. Since I learned how important it is to detox from the chemicals I've been cramming into my armpits on a daily for decades, I know this commitment to toxin-free deodorant is invaluable for my long-term health and well-being.  Yes I know, I've heard it all and I agree, the DIY stuff isn't always convenient or completely effective but, get clever!  If I need a little extra help during the day I apply a drop of Geranium or Lemon under my arms and all is well.  I always keep a 5ml bottle in my purse just in case! Bottom line, you can make DIY deodorant work for you with commitment and a little ingenuity!

Because there are so many lymph nodes under the arms I'm a firm believer in always including Frankincense in whatever blend of deodorant I use. Pure Frankincense can cross the blood/brain barrier, is anti-cancer and anti-tumor at a cellular level, it's extremely gentle and a tonic, soothing to all body systems. Rose essential oil  can help to purify blood by assisting the removal and neutralization of toxins. Once your blood is purified and free of toxins, you are protected from nuisances like boils, rashes, ulcers, and skin diseases, as well as more serious conditions that free radicals can cause.  And of course, the fragrance is heavenly, divine and a gift to the senses! I like Cypress in my blend too and though it might seem counterproductive as it can stimulate perspiration it also curbs excessive sweating!  Cypress can help remove toxins, excess salt, and water. This cleans the skin pores and openings of the sweat and sebum glands while keeping away acne and other skin diseases.  FYI: You'll find this same triple threat in my CW Anti-Age Salve with Rose, because the blend is worth repeating in my deodorant :) Let's get to the carrier of the blend, magnesium oil!  This is a staple in my day now, I find it helps with many things including my well being, sleep pattern and the softness of my skin.  In this blog post, "Make Your Own Magnesium Oil Plus" you'll learn what you need, how easy it is to make and all about why we need to boost our supplementation of daily magnesium.

 

 

ingredients
Directions
  1. Add all ingredients to blue or amber glass spray bottle, keep out of direct sunlight. Use as an all over body spray after a shower! Dry off, spritz body including underarms (for deodorant of course) and let dry on skin for 3 to 5 minutes then moisturize with something emollient and natural like CW Anti-Age Salve.
  2. Until your body gets used to magnesium oil, you may experience a slight stinging sensation. Applying moisturizer will diffuse this sensation, hang in there...the sensation will disappear after regular use :)

Thanks for this deodorant recipe! This is the first recipe I have seen without BAKING SODA! I have a bottle of Magnesium Oil (Magnesium Chloride Brine) from the Ancient Zechstein Sea. Hope this is what I need.

what could I substitute for the rose? The scent makes me nauseous.

How long does it take for there to be less “zing” in the application? I just started using magnesium oil and wondered if the itchy tingle was supposed to be there, because it didn’t act like an allergic reaction. Could this be made in a salve somehow? My daughter has broken out from everything she’s tried to use under arm, and she says her deodorant crystal makes it feel sticky under her arms.

I am excited to try this recipe. I have been making my own magnesium oil, but have not tried it in deodorant. I also have had a problem with baking soda being too irritating in deodorant, so I hope this recipe will work for me.

Are you making your own mag oil or buying it Randi? I’ve found that making your own seems to be gentler, that’s why I ask :)

I have made this recipe and LOVE it!! It seems to kick any body odor and smells really good. I get compliments from co workers all the time saying I smell soooo good. In the past I have read that Magnesium oil can have an irritating burn. After using this for over a month, I am still feeling a burning sensation and get a slight rash. Do you have any suggestions for me?

My cypress should be arriving today! BUT, I don’t have rose and won’t be able to afford it for some time. Can I substitute rose water? If yes, what amount should I sub in? Thanks for another great recipe, Rebecca!:)

I notice that you answer some questions but not all.
Is there a reason for this as I feel that it is not fair to other people.

I love a Thieve’s type blend too but I believe it will be a little hot to use as a deodorant.

I’m very excited to make this, but I’m wondering…can I use Thieves blend in place of the other oils? The only natural deodorants I’ve made that really work on me incorporate Thieves in some way. If so, how much would you recommend adding to this recipe?

I’ve heard that essential oils do not mix well with petroleum products, i.e. nail polish. I have acrylic nails and don’t want to give them up. Is there a recipe for the hair on your head to stop hair loss or regrow hair. Something that will not strip the perm out of my hair. I know, I have not been able to give that up either. My hair is very fine and as I have aged, it appears to be thinning more and more. Also can you suggest a resource to learn more about EO interactions with prescription drugs. I have two EO reference books, but neither provides the information that I would like to have.
I can’t wait to try the deodorant recipe!
