DIY: Homemade deodorant with sage

If you want a plastic- and aluminium-free deodorant, it is best to make it yourself: The right ingredients and these DIY instructions make it possible. I'll show you how.
Natural, sustainable, and without unnecessary ingredients: Deodorant can be simply conjured up yourself without much effort. Instead of aluminum, baking soda provides the antiperspirant effect.

Coconut oil as the main ingredient not only smells wonderful but is also quickly absorbed and cares for the delicate skin under the armpits. Beeswax and shea butter are an additional bonus. That's how it works!

Sage as a fragrant helper

As a home remedy, sage has been known for its antiperspirant properties for generations. It comes in the deodorant as a fresh herb, but if you want, you can also add some essential sage oil.

Homemade deodorant - enough for one jar

Ingredients:

3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp baking soda
2 tbsp starch, e.g. Cornstarch
1 teaspoon beeswax
1 teaspoon of shea butter
a couple of fresh sage leaves

Equipment:

a clean teaspoon and a tablespoon each
a screw-top jar, mason jar, or other meticulously clean containers
Rolling pin
small pot
fine-mesh sieve

Preparation:

Step 1:

First, pluck the sage leaves and knock them with the rolling pin or crush them so that a fine sage scent escapes. This releases the essential oils and flavors.

Step 2:

Put the sage together with the coconut oil in a small saucepan and melt on a gentle flame. The coconut oil does not have to boil, it should get very hot. Set aside the coconut oil with the sage and let it steep for about an hour. The coconut oil will solidify again.

Step 3:

Heat the coconut oil again and remove the sage leaves. Add beeswax and shea butter and melt. The mixture should combine nicely. Mix the baking soda with the starch in a small bowl and add it while stirring constantly.

Step 4:

Now the deodorant is allowed to cool down. Stir again and again so that the baking soda and starch do not separate. If you are impatient, you can always put the deodorant in the refrigerator so that it solidifies faster. However, do not forget to stir frequently!

As soon as the deodorant has a nice consistency, pour into the final jar and close tightly. After about 4 hours the homemade deodorant with sage is completely hardened and can be used.
