They say that the key to making friends is the lack of bad body smell. Sadly, most of the time, daily personal hygiene is not enough to keep your friends close and your odor away. So, we opt for antiperspirants, deodorants, and other body sprays to solve the problem. However, what we don’t or rarely have in mind while shopping for these products is how rich they are in chemicals that not only don’t get the job done right but may also harm your skin. So, what’s the real solution?
Since the awareness of consuming organic body products has raised, people have been producing creams, perfumes, and body deodorants made only from natural ingredients. This way, they will make sure they smell nice without worrying about potential side-effects to their skin. And the best part is, it’s not that hard to make them. All you need are some natural ingredients and your kitchen.
The only problem left to solve is – what ingredients to use? This is where we step in to help you. We’ve put together the best 10 recipes for creamy deodorants for you to gain insight into what to use and how to make them.
Your job is to pick your favorite and say goodbye to the store-bought deodorants once and for all.
Homemade Deodorant For Sensitive Skin
The first one on this list is this clay-and-baking-soda deodorant, specially made for those with sensitive skin.

Homemade Deodorant with Chamomile and Calendula
Another great soothing solution for your sensitive skin is this deodorant made from chamomile and calendula. It’s also great that it doesn’t have a strong scent, so it’s perfect for anyone. After trying this one out, you won’t have any reason to buy another deodorant.
