Stink be Gone! Natural Deodorant Spray!

This Heavy Duty Recipe for Natural Deodorant is for the SERIOUS STINKERS! 😉 ❤ {I was one, don’t worry! You’re not alone!} There is nothing more embarrassing than trying to avoid hugging friends and family because you stink! I was sick and tired of constantly having this issue!

I have been trying different all natural recipes for a few months, hoping to find something I could share with you guys, but I was struggling to find something effective enough for me personally. FINALLY, I found this original recipe for Spray Deodorant from Katie Wellness Mama & had to try it out! She’s brilliant & offers so many amazing recipes. Magnesium Oil! Of course! ~ Brilliant!

Katie’s recipe is based around people with a sensitivity to baking soda (so if you are – skip this recipe and head on over to hers.) After trying out this recipe I must say – It IS effective!! BUT – I need the stink sucking power of baking soda. :/ For some reason, after having my son – I STINK! My hormones must be totally crazy because I never had this problem before having children. I remember the “good ol’ days” in high school where I didn’t need deodorant at all, I could hit the gym, go for a long jog, all while staying fresh. This however, is no longer the case! Needless to say, in my adult years, I need a heavy duty deodorant to mask my hippie stink! ^_^ I understand that some people are sensitive to baking soda but I seem to be okay with it and so I decided to try and combine some things from some original deodorant recipes I was trying with this new and awesome one from Katie.

Even before converting to all natural products, I could only find ONE store brand that could keep my underarms smelling fresh. I needed to mimic that effect. 😉 (even though I’d rather stink then use chemicals any day)

The standard recipes I was trying before were okay, but really wouldn’t last long at all for me. Plus, scooping melted goop wasn’t fun, and if I refrigerated it I would end up with clumps and chunks from thinking I wasn’t putting enough on. “what’s all over you!?” my son would often ask. I tried so many different things. Tweaked every recipe I could find, and to my disappointment, nothing was strong enough. It wouldn’t even be an hour after a shower and the stink would come creeping up on me. {This is turning into a gross post! – My sincere apologies.} Needless to say, I am really enjoying this spray! No mess, no white marks on shirts, no itch, just pure power! (+ You can customize the scent to fit your preference)

Anyways…. I’ll get on to the recipe: 

All Natural Deodorant Spray


  • 200 ml Magnesium Oil OR fill your container with steaming hot distilled water and add in 2-3 tbs of the magnesium flakes. (Here is another post from Wellness Mama on how to make your own Magnesium Oil! as well as the benefits of it.)
  • 1 tsp Witch Hazel (optional)
  • 1-2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil (Tea Tree is antibacterial & antiseptic making it great for killing bacteria. It’s a little strong on it’s own so I like to blend it lightly with other oils)
  • Funnel
  • Spray bottle

Essential Oil Blend I used:

  • 3 drops Tea Tree
  • 5 drops Coconut Oil
  • 5 drops Nag Champa Oil


To Make:

  • Fill your container with your magnesium oil OR hot distilled water and magnesium flakes. Leaving a little room at the top.
  • Using a funnel – scoop in 1-2 tsp of baking soda
  • Shake vigorously until everything is dissolved.
  • drop in your essential oil blend
  • shake some more.

You are ready to rock this! – Shake well before each use. (we know how oil and water don’t mix)

After your shower spray on your under arms and allow to dry.

I must say THIS WORKS! I am stink free! I can hug freely! FINALLY! I hope this helps you too!

*NOTE* It’s important to remember, if you are just starting out on your natural journey, your underarms need time to detox. You may be smelly for a while as well. ^_^ The magnesium oil will help to detoxify faster.

Katie also recommends spraying a mix of 1:1 equal parts apple cider vinegar and water before applying natural deodorant. Thank You Katie for the tip!

Here is a post from Rapid Home Remedies on Eliminating underarm odors naturally. Lots of great herbal suggestions! Here is a post from Wellness Mama on the benefits and importance of magnesium oil.

Do you make all natural deodorant? What ingredients do you find most effective?

    Do you think magnesium lotion would work as a deodorant? I always keep the lotion for rubbing on my legs every night before bed–helps with restless legs and neuropathy, and I sleep really well. Also, magnesium lotion is absolutely great for rubbing into hurt muscles.

    I tried this recipe and it works great, thank you!
    The only thing is it keeps clogging my spray bottles after only a few pumps, any suggestions or is there a recipe for a cream version of this? I really love this deodorant and want to keep using it.

      The same thing happened to me when my spray bottle’s nozzle was too thin. I think I need to work on a cream version. There is a solid recipe on here but it needs to be updated. Thanks so much for your feedback! I appreciate it greatly!

        I actually did end up making a cream/lotion version which works really well even on my son who is going through puberty lol. I added a tsp of baking soda to the cream and it works great!

    This sounds really good, i have also tried MANY different recipes and they don’t seem to last long the one I did with clay seems OK( the best so far)’but still not good enoughANYWAY..I was wondering what kind of coconut oil you use, because you say 5 drops of coconut oil, i was just wondering is it fractionated ( the liquid kind) or the solid at room temp. Or is there something else like an essential oil type? Because if there is one like that, I would love to know about it because I love the smell of coconut oil but sometimes it can be too oily, and I think there are so many applications where it could be used. T.I.A. love your blog! Can’t wait to see what’s next,

      Thanks so much. I think my body gets used to one thing and it becomes less effective over time. I have been trying to concoct another new recipe. Maybe the two of us can team up with a mixture of all of our ideas and see if we can come up with something solid. The coconut here is in fact an essential oil blend. I will look into the manufacturer and let you know. 🙂
