6 Deodorant Alternatives to Keep You Smelling Fresh

Coconut Oil

This common cooking, hair, and skin oil makes a good natural deodorant.

Coconut oil kills odor-causing germs, making it a great deodorant option. It's also gentle on skin and a good basis for essential oils.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil works as a deodorant, although the scent may be off-putting. Antifungal tea tree oil fights odor-causing microorganisms.

Blend 10 drops of tea tree oil with 1/2 cup of coconut oil and blend well. Keep it in a small container for future use.


Charcoal absorbs underarm moisture better than aluminum-based antiperspirants since it doesn't block eccrine channels. It also prevents odor because it's antimicrobial.

Baking Soda and Cornstarch

Baking soda and cornstarch can absorb perspiration and prevent stink. Baking soda neutralizes smells while cornstarch absorbs moisture, minimizing perspiration and stink.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)

AHA toner for underarm odor. AHAs kill odor-causing microorganisms. These reduce armpit pH, making odor-causing bacteria less comfortable.

However, a modest AHA toner may produce dryness or irritation.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice kills odor-causing germs and smells fresh, making it ideal for armpits. Instead of squeezing and rubbing a lemon, massage a lemon slice. Remove any citrus residue.
