How to make a simple, spray on deodorant using magnesium oil.

I’ve had a lot of medical symptoms and just wasn’t sure what was wrong- I’ve slowly been plugging away at natural ways to diagnose and fix the problems because the doctors don’t seem to have a clue.

Symptom 1: Nauseous.
Symptom 2: Hot all of the time. Even playing outside in the snow. I wore tank tops most of the winter this past year.
Symptom 3: I stopped sweating.

After some research, I realized that sweat is a very functional part of our makeup. It helps us detox and cools our bodies down. By using antiperspirant as consistently as I was, I was potentially causing some of my symptoms. Because guess what? Over heating causes nausea. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to stop using antiperspirant. Which was great. During the winter. I stopped having issues with being hot all of the time, I started sweating again, and I wasn’t having as many issues with nausea. Yay!

The only problem is that it hit summer and I had to start using antiperspirant again. Because gosh I smell when I sweat. I decided to switch to a deodorant but didn’t know what kind to buy and GOSH the organic stuff is expensive. I did some research and discovered that magnesium oil makes a great deodorant. So I gave it a try and IT WORKS! I still sweat, but I don’t smell. It is also super easy to use in the spray on bottle. The baking soda stuff is a pain because it’s a white mess.

Cost: You may spend about $7 (per bottle) for this project. I already had the essential oils. But I can reuse the bottles so the future cost will run around $2.50/bottle. If you want to save more money, upcycle an old spray bottle for this recipe. 


Not much to this. Pour your magnesium oil into your bottle. Add your essential oils. Mix.

Spray on and rub in to use. Super easy.
