Homemade, natural deodorants usually rely on soda as protection. However, after only a few applications in sensitive skin, soda can lead to redness and inflammation. If this is also the case with you, our recipe is just right for you to make soda-free deodorant for sensitive skin.

Our soda-free deodorant for sensitive skin relies on the effect of lemongrass, which is also known as Cymbopogon, barbed wire grasssilky headsCochin grass or Malabar grass or oily heads. Leomgrass contains compounds that give it the distinctive small, but that are also antibacterial, and thus impede the bacteria that causes sweat to smell bad — not to be confused with the smell of healthy sweat while you are, say exercising.

Note: 1 cup equals 240ml, which is roughly a commercial tea/coffee cup. If you often make recipes with cup details or like to get creative yourself, we recommend American cups. Here, emphasis is placed on the proportionality of the ingredients as opposed to laborious weighing.

Make soda-free deodorant for sensitive skin: Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp shea butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp beeswax or 1 3/4 tsp carnauba wax
  • ¼ Cup Starch
  • 50 drops of Essential Lemongrass Oil


  1. Set up a water bath and gently melt the shea butter with the coconut oil and wax of your choice.
  2. Allow the mixture to cool slightly and then stir thoroughly into the starch. Make sure that no lumps are formed.
  3. Finally stir the Lemongrass oil and pour the finished deo into small metal tins.
  4. Finally cure the deocream completely in the refrigerator or at room temperature. It will take longer at room temperature, of course. And if you live in a warm region or are doing this in summer, we recommend you use the refrigerator to make sure it cures properly.
  5. Always store the soda-free deodorant for sensitive skin in a cool place, too. It’s best not to leave it — or any other such cosmetics — on a windowsill or in an area where strong light and heat can hit them, as this can damage them.
