Make This Spray Deodorant and Say Goodbye to Armpit Stains!

Ditch the stain-causing chemicals in your store-bought deodorant!

One of my more popular blog posts is one I originally posted several years ago, about how to remove those unsightly yellow stains that crop up on the armpit area of shirts. During the course of researching and writing the post, I learned some unexpected things about deodorant! Because those armpit stains aren’t just caused by sweat – they’re caused by a combination of sweat and aluminum (a common ingredient in antiperspirants).

So whether you’re just trying to avoid pit stains, or simply want to make a switch to something natural and homemade, there are plenty of reasons to give a homemade deodorant a try. And lucky for you, that’s what I’ll be sharing with you today! I’ll show you how to make a great homemade spray-on deodorant that is safe, effective and downright enjoyable to use. (No, really! This deodorant feels cool and refreshing when I put it on, and it’s quite nice on really hot days!)

This particular formula includes clary sage essential oil for its antibacterial properties. Clary sage oil can help kill smelly bacteria, and it also has a pleasant scent that makes it a great addition to this spray deodorant. And as an added bonus, clary sage oil can help you feel less stressed and more centered. (And who couldn’t use a bit of that when they’re getting ready for the day?) Here’s how you can make it at home!

Homemade Spray-On Deodorant


1/2 cup witch hazel
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1/4 tsp baking soda
10 drops clary sage essential oil*

*Note: Clary sage essential oil is fine for most people, but it should not be used during pregnancy. Feel free to substitute in another oil with odor-banishing properties, like melaleuca, lavender, or rosemary oil.


Add the witch hazel, aloe vera, baking soda and essential oils to a small spray bottle, and shake well to combine.

Using Your Homemade Spray Deodorant

Shake the bottle well before each use. Spray on underarms and let dry for a few seconds, if desired. Or just spray it on and go about your day!
