This smooth, brightly floral scented deodorant is just lovely. It melts into the skin quickly and beautifully, leaving you ready to tackle your days stink-free. Because it doesn’t contain any wax it melts to a thin liquid when massaged into the skin, meaning it absorbs almost instantly and won’t gum up your clothes.

The majority of this lovely deodorant is cocoa butter, unscented shea butter, and virgin coconut oil. I like the scent of rose and cocoa, but if you don’t I’d definitely recommend choosing an unscented cocoa butter instead of the lovey raw stuff.

White kaolin clay, baking soda, and silky smooth arrowroot starch power the deodorant. The clay and starch help manage moisture while the baking soda brings all of its deodorizing goodness to the party.

A hint of rose wax pairs with a drop of rose absolute, citrussy litsea cubeba, and intoxicating neroli for a bright, floral based scent that’s downright lovely, but not at all overpowering.

Rose & Neroli Vegan Deodorant

15g | 0.53oz cocoa butter
8g | 0.28oz refined shea butter
15g | 0.53oz virgin coconut oil
5g | 0.17oz sweet almond oil
1g | 0.03oz rose wax

8g | 0.28oz white kaolin clay
9g | 0.31oz baking soda
6g | 0.21oz arrowroot starch

1 drop rose absolute
3 drops litsea cubeba essential oil
2 drops 3% neroli essential oil dilution

Combine the cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and rose wax in a small saucepan or double boiler and melt over medium low heat.

Remove from the heat and stir in the clay, baking soda, starch, and essential oils. Stir away until the mixture thickens into something like peanut butter. Pack it into a tin or tube, rapping your container sharply on the counter to knock out any air bubbles.

Let the deodorant set up—it’ll likely be a day or two before it reaches full hardness.

I find this deodorant to be reasonably firm at room temperature, so I use the back of my nail to shave off a small sliver of deodorant and massage it in.

Because this deodorant doesn’t contain any way this means it’s not a great option if you live somewhere with average temperatures around 40°C (though I did take it to Costa Rica for a month and it was awesome with temperatures around 32°C). For you lucky folks I’d recommend this recipe 🙂
