How to make your own deodorant out of 3 ingredients

Benefits to making your own deodorant:

You know what’s in it: When we buy deodorant and we look at the ingredients list it might as well be a foreign
language. We don’t understand the list of ingredients and therefore
don’t know what kind of “stuff” we are putting on our bodies.

I for one like to know what I am using. This is why I figured out how to make my own deodorant, which is not only cheaper but also assures me that I am using the best product for my body. Plus, I get to pick my personal favorite scent- it doesn’t get better than that!

Here is what you need:

  • A small bottle to put your deodorant in
  • Alcohol ( I recommend either gin or vodka – you can’t smell them)
  • Your favorite essential oils ( I love the smell of peppermint)
  • Water


# Fill up the bottle halfway with water and the other half with your preferred alcohol.

# Add 4 to 5 drops of your preferred essential oils

# Shake the bottle. Done !

Tip: If you feel like you need your deodorant to be a bit stronger, just add more alcohol and less water.

You can switch up the essential oils, mix and match and create your truly personal scent.

    This works so much better than all the natural deodorants I have bought. Plus this is the first one that has not made my skin itch.
