I have been using a natural deodorant mixture for a few years now that works better than any store-bought or natural equivalent I have tried yet. The great thing about this simple deodorant mix is that it is completely natural and aluminum-free! And since we know any substances can be absorbed through the skin, our body’s largest organ, having a safe, chemical free anti-odor is a MUST.
My how to:
I mix measured equal parts of baking soda and cornstarch and put them into a baggy. After drying off from my shower, I shake the deodorant mixture and apply a small amount under each arm. From the time I put it on until the end of the day, there is still no odor to be detected regardless of how long I perspire! This is definitely unlike store brands, where you can smell your body odor through their perfumed product by the end of the day. Also, for sensitive individuals, the fragrance free aspect is a plus!
The powder tends to fall so be sure to apply this over the sink or tub area. Better yet, you could put this concoction into a small-recycled container and apply with an organic cotton puff.
This all natural preparation really works and I recommend it to all my friends looking for a safer, more healthful alternative to brands containing harsh, illness-causing chemicals!
