How To Make Your Own Deodorant

Apr 9, 2008
If you want to use a deodorant then one choice that you have is to simply make your own. This is will be better as you will be aware of the ingredients that are being applied to your skin and it will also be a lot cheaper too.

Without doubt anything that is natural is going to better for you and kinder to your skin compared to something that is packed with man-made chemicals and when you look at the ingredients you are not able to even pronounce the ingredients.

Such products are readily available on the high street, but with clever marketing these products are aimed at young men who want to make an impression amongst females.

Making your own deodorant can be a very simple process but there is something that you can do first to make sure that the sweat that is released from your body does not smell terrible. And that is to closely examine what you eat.

If you are a junk food addict then that is not going to help at all. Also if you are a meat lover then you need to realise that meat does contain a large amount of toxins and these will need to be released from the body and that is generally done via the sweat glands. So you need to cut back on the amount of meat that you eat and also the amount of junk food that you consume.

You should also eat yogurts as these contain healthy bacteria that is very good for the body and the consumption of yogurt actually helps the body to digest meat much more easily too.

Even the most expensive deodorant sprays will do anything about the level of sweating that is released all that they will do is just hide away any terrible smells from the body.

If you want to make your own natural deodorant then here are some very simple ideas that you may want to consider:

Use witch hazel under the arms to kill off any bacteria
Willow Bark used with Borax helps get rid of strong body odour.

Lemon and Orange Peel. All you need to do is to make these into a powder for a great fruity deodorant.
Using a Lavender Body Powder as this is great for both men and women.

All of the above are just simple natural ingredients that have not been processed at all, so you can be confident that you are not applying anything synthetic chemicals to your skin. Best of all you should be able to find these items in the high street and indeed in any health store.
