How to Make Your Own DIY Roll On Deodorant
- 1/2 tbsp Magnesium Chloride Flakes
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 tbsp warm distilled water or boiled tap water.
- 50ml witch hazel
- Essential oils of your choice (here we used 12 drops each of lavender, ylang ylang, bergamot and grapefruit essential oils for a fresh, floral and uplifting scent)
- Container of choice (here we used a 75ml roll on deodorant bottle , but you could also use a spray bottle)
- Add the magnesium chloride flakes and sea salt to the warm water and stir to dissolve.
- Add the essential oils and mix.
- Pour into your chosen bottle and top up with witch hazel. Shake well.
How to Use
Shake before use. Spray or roll a small amount of your DIY deodorant on your underarms as you would normally use a deodorant. Store out of sunlight and use within 4-6 months. Note: As this DIY roll on deodorant recipe contains magnesium you may feel a tingling sensation when using for the first time. Especially just after shaving. This is completely normal and usually fades after a couple of days of use. When using natural deodorants for the first time after using conventional ones, your body may need to take some time to adjust and detox first. This could take up to 4 days. The trick here is to persevere and before you know it, you won't go back to old conventional brands. Our DIY roll on deodorant is not an antiperspirant. You will still sweat. This deodorant may help boost magnesium levels and control odour with the help of witch hazel, and the essential oils. This recipe makes enough to approximately fill 1 x 75ml roll on deodorant bottle. Top up your bottle with a little more cooled boiled water or witch hazel if desired.
I want to try a ready-made natural deodorant first!

Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient's potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you've made yourself, or commercially formulated product.
Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
