Natural Deodorant – Making the Switch for your Health

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.

For those of you who follow my blog regularly, you know that a while back I switched to an all natural deodorant for good. After two months of sticking with it I was 100% convinced of the health benefits. Not only was I able to ditch the negative effects caused by using an aluminum based antiperspirant, but I was also able to increase my magnesium intake through a simple everyday habit – putting on deodorant.

Natural Deodorant Recipe - Making the Switch for Your Health! Learn how to make a natural magnesium cream deodorant recipe that not only fights odor causing bacteria, but is gentle on skin. And it also helps to increase the level of magnesium in your body to help with everyday aches and pains.

In the past I’d tried natural deodorants from commercial companies that just didn’t work for me. I’d also tried making my own deodorant with baking soda. That was quite the fiasco. Not only did it break me out in a painful rash under my arms, but it turned me off from natural deodorant for quite some time. Then one day I read about swapping the baking soda out with magnesium hydroxide. That’s when I fell in love.

My love affair with natural deodorant only grew after that. I started creating new natural deodorant recipes every time I’d run out of the previous batch. I also started experimenting with a variety of ingredients I’d never used in a deodorant prior. You’ll find that all of my new deodorant recipes reflect this change. They also all now contain a combination of clay, arrowroot powder, magnesium hydroxide powder and a combination of plant based waxes, butters and oils. (They’re vegan too!)

If you’re thinking of making the switch, it is important to realize that you will sweat when wearing natural deodorant. It’s definitely not the same as slapping on an antiperspirant. However, your body honestly needs to sweat. The plus side to my natural deodorant recipes however, is that you do stay dry longer than if you were wearing nothing at all. And, well. You won’t stink.

My most recent natural deodorant recipe is for a natural magnesium cream deodorant. I created this natural deodorant recipe specifically for The Nourished Life blog. My natural magnesium cream deodorant recipe not only fights odor causing bacteria, but it’s gentle on skin and helps to increase the level of magnesium in your body to help with everyday aches and pains. (I mean, I kind of feel like we could all use that from time to time, especially as we age.)

My palmarosa + lime natural deodorant recipe with aloe vera oil is probably my favorite DIY deodorant to date. While it's similar to other natural deodorants I've created in the past, I changed a few key components within this new natural deodorant recipe.

So be sure to hop over to The Nourished Life blog here to check out my most recent natural cream deodorant recipe. Then be sure to check out some of my other natural deodorant recipes right here on Soap Deli News blog!

As someone with sensitive skin I understand how challenging it can be to find products that not only work for your skin but also don’t cause irritation. Therefore I developed a simple vegan face wash recipe for sensitive skin. Not only does it gently cleanse skin without stripping it of beneficial oils, but it’s also effective at removing makeup and deterring adult acne.

I crafted my unscented vegan face wash recipe using Stephenson’s mild foaming bath butter for it’s gentle cleansing properties and creamy texture. Rich in natural glycerin, this base is also both paraben and MPG free.

I then added skin soothing colloidal oatmeal, oat butter and French green clay to this base to calm inflammation. In addition, I also used rosehip seed oil to hydrate skin and target aging without clogging pores. Jojoba beads and cranberry seeds are then used to offer gentle exfoliation.

Vegan Face Wash Recipe

Ingredients:

8 oz. Stephenson Foaming Bath Butter Base
1 oz. medium 40/60 white jojoba beads
.75 oz. oat butter (or another hydrogenated butter)
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.2 oz. French green clay
.2 oz. colloidal oatmeal
.15 oz cranberry seeds

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my vegan face wash recipe. In addition you will also need a hand mixer.

Begin by weighing out 8 oz. of foaming bath butter. Cut into chunks and place in a large glass bowl or 8-cup Pyrex measuring cup.

Next, weigh out and add the remaining ingredients to your container.

Starting with the lowest setting, use a hand mixer to mix the ingredients until combined with the foaming bath butter.

Once mixed, increase the speed of your hand mixer to high and beat until light and fluffy or to desired consistency.

Spoon the vegan face wash into your containers of choice. (I used these 2.3 oz. clear glass thick wall cosmetic jars with black lined caps from from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.)

Cleopatra's golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe creates a dry body oil loaded with lots of golden light reflecting mica. Spray it on and massage in for highlights and an all over golden glow that helps to hide skin's subtle imperfections and give the appearance of a more even skin tone!

My friend, Cathy, inspired me to make this golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe after seeing my mermaid shimmer spray. However, she was a looking for a much bolder shimmer and a simpler recipe to recreate. Therefore, I kept the ingredients for my Cleopatra’s golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe extremely simple but added a lot more mica.

For those of you who aren’t destroying your kitchen on a regular basis like the rest of us, this easy 4-ingredient recipe will also help to make the startup costs for this project a lot more affordable.

However, if you prefer the dry oil recipe I used for my mermaid shimmer spray, you can use that one instead. Just be sure to either double that recipe or halve the amount of mica. (The mermaid shimmer spray recipe yields one 4 oz. container while this one yields two.)

The mica for this golden glowtion shimmer oil does settle when not in use. So be prepared for that. I wanted to avoid using emulsifiers and other more complicated ingredients simply for the sake of keeping the mica suspended in the product. I found that a light dry oil works fine for this application. You just need to shake the golden glowtion vigorously before each use for consistency.

The gold shimmer is dazzling when sprayed onto skin and massaged in. Cathy used it on her skin and ended up with something akin of a light shimmering tan. (She and I are both super pale.) However, I’m sure it would be just as stunning on dark skin as well!

We also chose a lip and eye safe gold sparkle mica for this project so you can use it anywhere your heart desires. I hope you have fun with this recipe!

Ingredients:

4.75 oz. fractionated coconut oil
2.75 oz. clear jojoba oil
.75 oz. gold sparkle mica
.2 oz. skin safe fragrance oil, of choice

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients for my golden glowtion shimmer oil recipe.

Begin by weighing out the fractionated coconut oil, clear jojoba oil and a skin safe fragrance oil of your choice. Combine the ingredients in a large glass beaker or glass Pyrex measuring cup. Stir to combine.

Now weigh out the add the mica. Mix vigorously until the mica is thoroughly combined throughout the oil and there are no more clumps.

Once combined, use a funnel to fill evenly fill two 4 oz. bottle with a mist sprayer. (I used the 4 oz. Frosted PET Cosmo Round Bottles with White Fine Mist Sprayers and Brushed Aluminum Collars from SKS Bottle & Packaging found here.) Then screw on the sprayers to your bottles.

Label your golden glowtion shimmer oil bottles as desired for personal use or gifting. (I made a sticker label for mine glowtion using Egyptian clipart that I purchased from JustClipz. Then I simply printed my labels onto sticker paper, cut them out and applied them to the bottles.)

To use, vigorously shake the bottle to evenly remix the ingredients (the mica will settle) then spray onto skin and massage in.
