Aluminum in deodorants? This has already been heatedly debated! With a homemade deodorant cream, however, you can be absolutely sure that your body will not get any toxins - only delicate fragrances of your choice!

There are still no conclusive studies as to whether aluminum in deodorants can actually cause breast cancer or allergies - but to be on the safe side, you can simply resort to alternatives! The protection provided by so-called deodorant creams is particularly effective. The application may take some getting used to, but at the latest the gentle scent is convincing!

And to be absolutely sure that it only contains ingredients that are not harmful to our body, you can simply make a deodorant cream yourself! We discovered the instructions at Ms. Jonah & Son and Miss Xoxolat and had to try them out right away!


  • 10 g of zinc oxide from the pharmacy
  • 10 g baking soda
  • 10 g cornstarch
  • 20 g shea butter
  • 20 g of almond oil
  • 30 drops of essential oil of your choice



Mix the zinc oxide, baking soda and cornstarch and mix very well. If you have a mortar handy to help break up the clumps. Otherwise, you can use the back of a spoon to crush the chunks.


Now you bring some water to a simmer on the stove. At the same time you put the different oils in a small, fireproof pot and let them slowly melt in the steam over the simmering water.


Liquid and solid ingredients can now be mixed together. Again, make sure that there are no lumps. Then you fill the mass in a small can and let it cool in the refrigerator.


Once the cream has set, it is ready to use! When it comes into contact with body heat, it becomes more "spreadable" again and can thus be easily distributed in the best wet armpits. All you need is a fingertip of your self-made deodorant.

When applied, the cream is whitish, but the color disappears quickly. And don't be surprised if you sweat anyway! Because this deodorant does not suppress sweat - like aluminum-containing deodorants - which is a functional cooling function of the body, but prevents bacteria on your skin from causing the undesirable odor.
