Homemade Spray Deodorant Recipe
I found an all natural homemade spray deodorant that I absolutely love! This easy, homemade spray deodorant is so uplifting, clean and fresh that I actually look forward to spraying it under my arms each morning. And it works so well!!! My husband uses it and gives it his seal of approval, too. He says that he stays smelling fresh even after his long mountain bike rides 🙂
We’ve been using this homemade spray deodorant ever since I accidentally discovered it. You see, it was originally my yoga mat cleaner haha! I ran out of my homemade sensitive skin deodorant and didn’t have time to make more before I had to run out the door. So I quickly looked around, saw my yoga mat cleaner and thought to myself, “why not?! I love the way this smells and it’s got to be better than nothing!”
I’m so glad I tried that because I discovered that it makes the best homemade spray deodorant. It really works! It smells so good, so fresh and so clean. I love this recipe as a yoga mat cleaner and now I love it as a spray deodorant, too. Who knows what else it could be good for?! If anyone tries it for anything else, let me know!
The unique blend of Apple Cider Vinegar and anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial essential oils create an environment that kills bacteria (it’s the bacteria that makes us so stinky!) and deodorizes. You’ll be left smelling super fresh and clean.
I can’t wait for you to try my recipe for yourself and see why we love it so much!
How to Make Homemade Spray Deodorant:
- 4 ounce glass spray bottle (I use THIS one)
- 2 ounces (1/4 cup) apple cider vinegar (I use THIS)
- 2 ounces (1/4 cup) distilled or spring water *see note below if you need extra strength odor protection
- 30 drops lemongrass or lemon essential oil (I use THIS)
- 15 drops lavender essential oil (I use THIS)
- 5 drops tea tree essential oil (I use THIS)
- Fill a 4-ounce glass bottle halfway full with apple cider vinegar.
- Add your essential oils.
- Fill it the rest of the way up with water. Shake well.
Common questions and answers about this Homemade Spray Deodorant:
Will I still sweat?
Yes. But sweating is a very good thing! Sweating is the body’s natural way of releasing toxins through the skin (in fact, I purposely sweat it out a few times a week in my infrared sauna – sweating is SO good for you!). If you block the sweat glands from sweating by using antiperspirants, you’re interfering with the body’s natural process of elimination, which can lead to increased infections.
Even though you will still sweat when using this spray deodorant, the ACV and essential oils will kill the bacteria, keeping you odor-free and fresh!
Will I smell like Apple Cider Vinegar?
No! This is something that’s important to me, too. Who wants to smell like ACV?! The essential oils overpower the ACV so the only thing you’ll smell like is the lovely, refreshing essential oil blend that you used.
How long will it keep me smelling fresh?
Under normal conditions, one application lasts all day for us.
If you perspire a lot or do intense activity, you may have to use it twice a day. If you’re finding that it still doesn’t cut it, you can switch out the water with 100 proof or higher vodka. That will make it super dooper strength. (Yes, the 100 proof vodka is safe to use, it will not dry out the skin and it makes this recipe even more effective for those who may need extra strength odor protection!)
You already have 2 DIY Deodorant recipes on your blog. Is this one better?
I do have 2 homemade deodorant recipes already on my blog. And they are both great. They really are. My husband and I used them for years and years with success. The first one is HERE.

This homemade spray deodorant is way more convenient and much simpler to make. It’s been my go to deodorant. I love it!
How long does this homemade spray deodorant keep?
Once blended, this convenient homemade deodorant spray is safe to be used and stored for a very long time (over a year).
