Bulgarian Homemade Witch Hazel Deodorant

Witch Hazel Squared

Witch hazel makes a great deodorant and because of its natural skin-healing and skin-care properties is an ideal replacement for commercial deodorants.

This DIY recipe for witch hazel based deodorant was given to me by a friend who works in a perfume shop and of course using locally produced Rakia with a high alcohol content, the higher the better. You can use vodka if you can’t get hold of Rakia. Here is a Bulgarian homemade recipe you may want to try. It makes 100 ml of deodorant.

You need to get a range of essential oils, which can be easily bought from good health shops or online stores. When you buy stocks they last for years so it is a good investment and of course many of the oils have therapeutic benefits in their own right.


  • 1 tsp 50% (or more) proof rakia
  • 10 drops geranium oil
  • 10 drops cypress oil
  • 10 drops rosemary oil
  • 5 drops neroli oil
  • 5 drops lavender oil
  • 40 ml witch hazel
  • 25 ml rose water
  • 25 ml cornflower water

  1. You need a 100 ml bottle (glass) with a spray attachment to store the deodorant
  2. Put the Rakia in the bottle and add the oil one at a time.
  3. Give it a good shake so all the oils and alcohol have been thoroughly mixed.
  4. The witch hazel should be added into the bottle then the rose and cornflower flower waters.
  5. Mix well by shaking the bottle.
  6. The deodorant is now prepared and ready for application.
  7. You need to shake the deodorant before you apply it each time.

You will feel fresh all day and know that it is doing your skin a world of good.
