herbal heodorant

These effective deodorants are handcrafted from organic and natural ingredients. Made with no aluminum or parabens and no antiperspirants; these deodorants are just that- deodorant! .... Buying these will save you a lot of time and energy and the outcome will be the same. No Scent.

Every healthy human produces approximately 1-2 pints of sweat a day, which is an odorless liquid. Chemically based commercial products have been known to contain products that block the sweat glands and inhibit their natural temperature regulation. The decomposition of bacteria on the skin form substances with odor. Our  homemade deodorant recipe, does not contain products that block the sweat glands however it contains products that prevent odor from forming. Zinc - oxyde is an odour-free, natural raw material, combined with rose geranium which kills the bacteria that make our perspiration smell unpleasant. It doesn't close the pores or stop the natural process of perspiration.

Tip: In the summer, store your spray deodorant in the refrigerator. This not only increases its shelf life but makes it even more refreshing on the season's hot days.

Spray Deodorant Recipe

Basic Recipe

2 tsp. zinc-oxide powder
2/3 cup witch-hazel extract
2 tbsp. aloe-vera juice
30-40 drops essential oil(s)

In a small bowl, stir the zinc-oxide powder into the witch-hazel extract, and add the aloe-vera juice and essential oil(s). Fill an 8-oz. dark-glass spray bottle with the fluid.

For Daily Use

Basic Recipe (above)
30 drops rose-geranium (Pelargonium asperum) essential oil

The rose geranium oil is high in terpene alcohol, which inhibits the proliferation of odor-causing bacteria.

Dealing with Foot Odor

Powerful but gentle antiseptic and astringent zinc-oxide powder can neutralize even the intense odor of sweaty feet. Clean your feet and dry them thoroughly. Dust them with a mixture of 1/2 cup of baking soda, 2 tbsp. of zinc oxide powder, 2 tbsp. of fine, dry white clay and 4 tbsp. of powdered sage. Sprinkle a bit inside your shoes as well, to keep your feet fresh all day.

For Sensitive Skin

Basic Recipe (above)
30 drops calendula (Calendula officinalis) extract (CO2)
10 drops lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil

Calendula and lavender oils are mild yet potent fighters of bacteria and odor.

For Excessive Sweating

Basic Recipe (above)
30 drops sage (Salvia officinalis) essential oil

Sage oil inhibits sweat-gland activity by as much as 50 percent. It also is antiseptic and astringent and gently constricts pore size.


Sage oil should not be used if you are pregnant or have epilepsy. Cypress essential oil (Cupressus sempervirens) can safely be substituted. Also, it is very important to use only the specific essential oils given in the above recipes. Make sure to match up not just the English name but the Latin name as well. Other varieties of the same plants could prove irritating or require additional cautions.


Wash your armpits thoroughly and dry them well. The components of your herbal deodorant have reliable and long-lasting effectiveness only when applied to clean skin. Then spray the deodorant across the skin several times to dampen it. Let it dry before getting dressed so it doesn't stain your clothes.

Ingredient Benefits:

Witch-hazel extract to inhibit sweating: Witch-hazel extract is derived from the plant's bark, twigs and leaves. It inhibits inflammation, absorbs oil and is mildly astringent. With regular use it constricts skin pores and thus reduces excessive sweat formation. If you shave your underarms, apply witch hazel water just after shaving; it eliminates small pimples and reddening.

Zinc-oxide powder to neutralize odor: Zinc-oxide powder is obtained from the mineral zincite. The powder has a slightly greasy consistency and will make your homemade deodorant appear milky. It has excellent properties for neutralizing body odor, will not irritate the skin and is slightly antiseptic and astringent. Since it is not completely water soluble, the powder tends to separate from liquids over time. Make sure to shake the deodorant before use.

Aloe-vera juice to cool and moisturize: Aloe-vera juice gives your homemade deodorant a mildly cooling effect, especially pleasant and refreshing at hot times of year. Including the juice in your deodorant means you also benefit from aloe-vera's remarkable healing and moisturizing properties. These ensure that the skin is adequately conditioned and that any type of irritation or itchy allergic reaction is quickly and easily alleviated.
