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)
# 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.
