I've been testing and perfecting this recipe for weeks and I'm thrilled to have arrived at a final product! Don't be alarmed by the amount of time I invested, though, because this herbal roll on deodorant is actually quite simple to make. Let me show you how I did it!
7/8 oz. organic witch hazel
1/8 oz. vegetable glycerin
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
5 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops clary sage essential oil
3 drops cedarwood atlas essential oil
1 ounce glass roll-on bottle
To make: Simply add all of the ingredients to a roll on glass bottle and you are good to go!
To store: I use this 1 ounce glass bottle – they are a bit smaller than standard deo containers, but it's very nice to use and GREAT for throwing in my purse. (Here's a picture of me holding the bottle – so you can get an idea!) I recommend using glass, since essential oils can break down plastic over time. You can also reuse glass over and over many more times, anyway! You could just as easily store this in a spray bottle, too! You can make larger batches at a time, I wouldn't. The roller ball needs to be cleaned out every so often and this is a good amount of product/time to wait between cleanings.
To use: Shake well and apply to underarms. Toss it in your bag to use later. I get around 6-7 hours of protection from this recipe on a normal day.
That's all there is to it! Give this recipe a try and let me know how it works for you.
