Finally, I’ve come up with a recipe for deodorant that actually keeps me odor free all day even after a super sweaty workout! I’ve been searching for years for something that actually keeps B.O. at bay and by George, I think I’ve got it!
If you’re wondering why on earth anyone would make their own deodorant, just do a quick search for “why you should make your own deodorant” and you’ll get plenty of answers. In short, if I don’t want something in my body, I try not to put it on my body. Your skin is the largest organ you have and absorbs just about anything you put on it. When it comes to antiperspirants, the main ingredient is aluminum, which is a heavy metal linked to diseases such as breast cancer and Alzheimer’s. If that’s not enough, there are a slew of other ingredients that you probably won’t recognize. When it comes to personal care products, I use the rule I use for my food, if I don’t know what it is, I’m not putting it on or in my body.
