The vast majority of commercial antiperspirants and deodorants are loaded with dangerous chemicals that impact the skin and lead to irritations and hormonal imbalances.
Nowadays, many antiperspirants contain aluminum to dry out the sweat. By injecting aluminum ions into the cells when your body starts swelling it keeps the ducts closed to prevent sweat get out. On the other hand, it is a much better option to use natural deodorants that allow sweat and toxins to leave the body instead of trapping them inside.
Fortunately, you can easily make the following homemade deodorant spray using safe and recognizable all-natural ingredients. The preparation process is extremely easy and very effective that you’ll never need to buy deodorant again. This is a pretty frugal way to enjoy your arm-pit needs and enable toxins and sweat to leave the body instead of keeping them inside.
Moreover, deodorants mainly contain antimicrobial chemicals to prevent only the body odor, yet not the flow of sweat. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is warning that the regular use of such antimicrobials may cause antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria
In most cases, the main antimicrobial chemicals used are either triclosan or polyhexamethylene biguanide. In addition, the majority of these commercial antiperspirants and deodorants neglect to keep the awful smell caused by apocrine sweat mixed with the bacteria.
Here’s how to prepare the amazing non-toxic, long-lasting, organic deodorant:
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
- 10 drop of any essential oil
- 5-6 tablespoons Coconut oil
At first, mix the coconut oil, baking soda, and arrowroot powder in a suitable container, combine the mixture thoroughly using a spoon. Next, add the essential oil, and transfer the mixture in the container that has a lid, and put it in the fridge.
It will definitely be a bit strange to use this natural deodorant at first, but as soon as you experience its great effects you will never buy another one from the store. Plus, the texture is about the same as store bought.
